Printmaking fun!

Creating abstract fun with a Gelliplate

I recently bought a smaller sized 5×5 inch square Gelliplate for abstract and nature printmaking projects. I found this size perfect for my Hobonichi journal. It’s a fun and relaxing way to collect ephemera for future art journal projects.

I usually like to use nature samples for my imprints, like leaves and ferns, but here I cut out my own stencils from file folder cardstock. Part of the fun is learning to enjoy the happy surprises that you end up with, even if you do get a few “not so great” prints along the way. In the end, it’s all about having fun in the process–re-visitingย your child-like experience with art.
