And you? What's triggering your creativity these days?

Just because I could...
...I did it again. I'm possibly (read probably, absolutely) hooked on these tangled fun foam plates and created another one in an overall grid pattern this time. I immediately tested it with stamp pads and ink,
and then my trusty Gelli plate. These prints are the first prints, and I love the colour underneath generated by the dry paint on the plate from previous printing sessions.
I may have gotten a little carried away...
with more than one print.
There was something about these prints that triggered a conversation with a good friend regarding the energetic changes happening in our world right now, and I was reminded about the connections I have with others. I fussy cut a house-wrap mask that spoke to me of this,
and overprinted one of the Gelli prints.
I used my Posca pens on it, and can see that it will become part of a journal page.
My use of the fun foam plate has enlivened it a great deal - I suspect that another Gelli plate session will hit the studio this weekend when Alice Saltiel comes to visit. Sounds perfect to me!
