I had to do a test run on the recent spate of Tyvek stencils I burned a couple of days ago.
And I'd made some modelling paste texture plates that were begging for a trial run too. I particularly like this 'gears' one for its subtlety.
Some fun foam stamps created interesting patterns,
Overprinting pieces from a previous session yielded some really fun textures and colour,
I love the look of the stencils, texture plates and foam stamps at the end of it all too.
All in all, I'd say it was well worth the 'lost time', and I've got some good samples for my Gelli binder, to say nothing of some lovely papers for upcoming projects.
