If you want to join in with making an Attitude of Gratitude Journal through the month of November click through to the Challenge blog.
Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt on Random Acts of Kindness.
Today's art challenge was to 'stamp with a mask'.
There are a lot of photographs in today's post.
I have noticed a lot of mentions about Gelli Plates lately. I don't own one but I know it is possible to print using my glass plate.
I put some acrylic paint onto the plate and using a brayer I spread the paint.
I drew patterns in the paint. (This is the same paint - just taken in a different light!)
I added green paint without cleaning the previous colour off and drew again.
And took another print. It is possible to take more than one print but each successive one will be paler.
I brayered the excess paint onto the backing paper. I'm loving how it's looking!
Now it's dry it has a lovely random feel to it.
Then I tried today's challenge. Now trying something new when you're showing your work on your blog may not be the best idea. So you may want to try it on spare paper rather than in your journal. I used 3 different colours.
When I thinned the Golden liquid acrylic with a wet brush I made it too thin so eventually just went with the liquid paint.
Since I felt it wasn't totally obvious what these were I drew round the masks with a black pen.
I added the verse and wrote my journaling along the spiral on the left.
Hope you have fun with today's challenge. But if you want to try something else that's fine!!!
See you tomorrow.
