About a year ago I joined an art swap and happy mail group. I’ve really enjoyed the prompts and themes because it has pushed me to try new techniques and supplies.
The admins have started a new Art Recipe Challenge where a list of supplies, techniques, etc are listed and you create from that. I signed up to do the challenge ahead of when it’s posted in the group so others can see the list in action.
The challenge included the following:
1. Gelli plate and/or gelli prints
I used a 1/4 inch piece of craft foam to make monoprints.
I used hand made stamps that I cut out of craft foam.
3. Book pages
I used pages from a thrifted book. I cut out the letters to the word “MAGIC”.
4. Opaque pens/markers.
I used white & black Uniball Signo pens and a black Pitt Pen.
I used a brayer to spread paint onto a piece of craft foam.
I used stencils, stamps and found objects to make marks in the paint. Then press paper on top and peel up.
My finished prints , stamps, book pages, opaque pens and markers and canvas.
I doodled over the stamped marks with a Uniball Signo in white and black.
