Today at the day job (I’m living the dream by working at an art supply store!), I got to attend a super fun mono printing workshop lead by my super fun artist friend, Mel Kolstad!

We used 5-inch square Gelli plates and acrylic paints to achieve one of a kind prints, using stencils, objects to make textures, and different wipe out tools for reductive effects.

I really like the idea of using these monoprinting plates as a launching pad for color study notes, art journaling, and general meditative activity.
I would love to have a Gelli plate to work with the next time I feel like I’m in a creative block.

Here are some of my favorite prints from today:

One of these days, I’ll get the hang of blogging…but in the meantime, thanks for tuning in to my random artist-ness!
