Good of you to pop in.
Thursday’s blog is always blue, right?
Got home after reworking all the artboards with lovely Lisa,
and decided I needed a paint fix.
Every so often, I just need to switch off and get arty.
So here’s a simple step-by-step…
So out with my trusted Gelpress Plate
and my favourite stencil – Leafy Swirl.
Spread a little blue paint on the plate.
China and Lake Wanaka.
Spread it over the plate with a brayer.
Place the stencil on the wet paint.
Blot with a piece of punchinella and
The key to a good print is waiting for the paint to dry
around the outside of the stencil,
and then quickly whipping the stencil off
and getting the copy paper down asap.
That way, you can get a fab blotted print for another day….
Now let‘s get the design on the plate transferred to card.
With more of the same paint!
Spread it out lightly with a brayer, and get rid of the excess paint until you can see the design peeping through.
I used another splatty piece of copy paper,
although it got completely covered up, and to be honest
a white piece of copypaper probably would have done the same trick!
Trim the edges,
of both prints.
Spray mount on card.
Now if only I could get it straight…
still love the print though.
Stamp a cool message – Clean out –
onto a piece of the same Stencil card,
using Cornflower Blue.
Colour in and edge.
Stop the clock.
Clean out a corner of your mind,
just like I did
and creativity will instantly fill it…
Got to go.
Ally Pally set-up tomorrow….
And we must find a winner for the wonderful
Dee-artwork and £20 Gift Voucher tomorrow.
