Also in honor of my sister, I decided to try something completely new -- mono-printing!
I took photographs of my sister's pottery and used them to make stencils. With the Gelli printing plate Carrol Wolf gave me, I used a Speedball 2 inch rubber brayer to roll red, yellow, and blue Speedball water soluble printing ink onto the plate with the stencils present in some layers. The stencils worked in some layers and not in others. I did six prints and here they are in order:
The last one is my favorite. I'm thinking I could use some of the textures in my iPad art. And I think I'll give all these printing supplies back to Carrol Wolf for her to try.
