I really enjoyed last months challenge over at the Mixed Media Place and so here I am playing along again with this months challenge
I am looking forward to getting "fit" with these challenges
Black White Grey and one other colour was the criteria, I wanted a happy colour to represent how I feel when reading and so I went with Yellow
This is what I came up with
Whilst browsing the web I have been looking at the Gelli printing plates and thinking what fun they look, I wanted to try the mono printing idea out and I found an old silicone rubber mat that is used in the kitchen, this is what I used to create the polka dot background to my page.
One side is smooth and the other is slightly grained I smeared black acrylic paint onto the grained side of the mat with my brayer and then layed the polka stencil over it. I took off the stencil and placed my paper on top and smoothed it out, when I peeled it off I had a really cool looking background (not quite Gelli plate but very interesting looking)
I continued stamping and I found most of the items on the page just laying around on my desk, the paper coaster was holding my cup of tea but I peeled off some layers and added yellow paint to it and placed it behind my photo. I used more of the yellow acrylic paint and another floral stencil to the edges to complete my page.
I really enjoyed this challenge once again can't wait for next month!
