More Gelli Prints

My lovely arty friend Lis and I- are currently having a joint Gelli Print exhibition in Jutland, Denmark.
These are just a few of the more than 50 prints that I have made for that event.
 What I love most about Gelli printing, is the unknown. Never to be able to know exactly how the outcome, the final print will turn out. So many lovely surprises. Like this one.
Printed on grey card stock with a thin layer of pink acrylic, using a piece of tulle fabric as a mask and a old doily. And wupty, an old flower pot appeared! Love it.
 This "Dress" came about using an onion net.
 A small collage on a printed music book page.
 I cut a bird stencil and used it with a piece of string.
This scarab I also cut my self, and it has been a good template.

July - Trekking and journaling

With July comes trekking in the Scottish Highland. This year I guided a group of Danes up north on  The West Highland Way. A really pleasant trip, where the weather was kind to us. 
                                          Loch Tulla Cairn.
 This trip was very special to my assistant and my self, as we lost a dear friend a fellow hiker just last month. To honour her memory and great love of the highland, we placed a small memento in a truly beautiful spot over looking Loch Leven.
 Not much time for making Art, but a harmonica - Ink and Watercolour - journal swap, with my fellow European circle friends, is made and ready to fly to Italy.
                                                   Sweet Peas from my daughters garden....
 To keep the journal safe travelling around Europa, I made a sleeve to put it in. Inspired by Lorraine Rigby. I would love to invite my group of friends for tea, but all the traveling makes it not possible, yet. So a collage, sewn on the front, will have to do :)
And a cup each on the back. I shall welcome my journal back home in 6 months time.

Gelli prints Galore.

Still getting to know my new Gelli Printing mat, I have been playing around with colours and very simple shapes/images.
I find, that it is the colours, and the unknown results, that appeal to me most.
These are just a few of the many I have been working on.
I still want to incorporate some writing, and I wouldn't be at all surprised, if the old sewing machine gets to have a go also.....
