I'm really excited and all things being well, I'll be moving to a lovely 3 bedroomed house with a converted attic that I'm hoping to turn into a craft room.
|Gelli printed canvases|
Anyway, back to the arty stuff :) Had a great day yesterday with my friends Bibi and Sam, doing a bit of gelli plate printing onto canvas inspired by Donna Downey's gelli plate class the-art-of-gelli-prints-online-workshop . She makes it look so easy, but love that she included a bit where she went wrong :)

I wasn't sure about one of my canvases but decided to keep going and did another couple of layers on top and some stencilling to finish, quite happy in the end.
|stencilled with paynes grey(love this colour)|
|Added damson india ink|
|thought Evolve was a good word to stencil on this one as it did!|
|outlined word in stabilo all pencil in white|
|added a bit of drippage and doodling to finish|
Sam's canvases turned out so well, she did 3 and was really proud - deservedly. I loved the colours in Bibi's and her abstract poppies
Off to Manchester tomorrow evening to carry out some training - have my survival kit packed, the coffee provided in the hotel room is horrible!
