how high ~ how wide mixed media

hello!
 
lately, it seems i haven't had enough time in the studio, and i'm not complaining.  it's just ... well spring has arrived!!  {yay!}  feels so good to have sunshine, and longer days, but i don't know where the time goes!

so in the little bits of time here and there, i play with the prints i've produced from the gelli plate printing frenzy i'm in. they're easy to take upstairs, where i can play, think, embellish, and yet be "with the family" too!  georgia thinks she needs to be in the thick of things...  isn't she funny?  you may notice that the page she is laying on is from my big bristol artbook, where i have layed down some screen printed designs ~ these are brand new from terri stegmiller!  can you say "fabulous?!"  i'm  not only a color junkie... but a design junkie, apparently.  i was so excited to get them, and play with them.  i really love the stencils terri has designed, {in fact i love all of her art... check her out!} but  i'm thrilled she is making thermofax screen designs, now, too! this particular design i printed to deli paper, and then tore and adhered them to the gelli-printed page that georgia is posing on!


these photos aren't the best... bad reflection on some of the shots, but i hope you can see the layers of color, textures, and the beautiful gelli print {that i am seemingly addicted to these days!}  

 this journal page begins with a gelli print, directly printed to the bristol paper page.  i added a screen print {from margaret applin - nother fave!!}
 i also tore up a gelli print that was heavily doodled on {see the whole page here}, and adhered it to the page with gel medium, and adding washi tape, stamps... black pen highlights, as well as silver leaf foiling, more paint with twinkling h2o's.  i do love the depth that h2o's add to the page, with the sparkly goodness to top it all off... to help tell the visual story of the verse i'm highlighting as well.
 





and a little white metal number embellishment that i love.  been wanting to use it for the longest time ~ finally it has found a home on this page!
and the finished page, above.  i couldn't really see all the fuss about washi tape... but i'm so there now!  love the transparency, and the ease in which to use it! it adds depth as well as the patterning, and a little spark of something different, i guess.  anyway!  {i love it all!}

enJOY!
