Mixed Media

I have been watching a lot of mixed media videos on YouTube (especially the Gelli Arts channel). I've been inspired to try new things.

I made a gelli plate and did some prints on sticky tape (sounds weird but turned out really well.
I rubbed some silver leaf onto the sticky parts on the back of the tape then stuck it to another piece of paper I had already done some food colouring and glad wrap on with some masking fluid.
Then the drawing started, I found that white gel pen turns out beautifully on top of the tape.

I then decided to use the Gelli plate to do some reverse stamping. Lol! I layered the paint down and stamped onto some old cards I had lying around. I kept layering more and more paint with different patterns and stamped and ghost stamped away.
This is the Gelli plate. Such a great medium to work with

Madebyjoey Challenge #17

I haven't done a challenge for Joey for a while so here goes. This week Joey wants us to Tangle a tree. I did this a little while ago so thought, why not enter it. I call it 'Weeping Willow on the River Bank', pretty obvious Name!

I've been Creating!

Yep, I certainly am loving my break from uni, I get flustered and excited deciding what I want to do at any given time, draw, paint, crochet, knit, read, it's all very overwhelming. Lol! So, I do a bit of Everything!
Aaaaaw,  how purty!
Pretty soon, I will be wearing all crocheted or knitted items. Bahahaha!
And so will Sassy...... (What? She likes It! )

Playing with water colour is a new favorite of mine, every attempt turns out differently. Love these two.
Aaaaaand (drum roll) COPICS,  I took the plunge, I am in love with these markers. They are so different to any other, the alcohol base makes them behave and react in a unique way to any other marker I've ever used. Will definitely be buying more and playing around a whole Heap!

Playing with Water Colour

Since I have discovered Kathys' blog papernlaceprincess I have become addicted to water colours. They create a wonderful background to Tangle on. The possibilities are endless since every time the colours mix differently and create different shapes on the paper.

Gratitude List - Link up no. 36

What an awesome idea this is, I found Laurel Regan and her Alphabet Salad here

This blog is certainly eclectic and I love that.

I feel the need to jump in and participate in the gratitude link up.

I have so much to be greatful for, right at this very moment though, i am snuggling in bed with my youngest, we are warm, comfortable and have so much love for each other. These are certainly things that i appreciate immensely.  In this very moment i am at peace.
It is so important to consciously think about the good in your life because it is all too easy to get caught up in the negative...

This is the Australian flag I tangled for an Australia challenge back in January.  Its done using 6 little twinchies.  I'm submitting it for challenge 15 over at madebyjoey . I haven't participated in Joeys challenge for a long time. It's nice to be contributing again.

Time on my Hands!

Guess who's on uni break? (Happy Dance!) I've been dabbling in a few fun activities over the last couple of weeks.
A bit of black and white ZIA
Playing around with water colours on some post cards.
I've even learned how to crochet......
AND, I'm taking the opportunity to read something fictional.
It would seem that I am definitely not wasting my free time...
