Summer of Color playtime

Week 2 on Summer of Color is Orange & Hot Pink

Continuing my Gelli plate theme I looked out some papers and the Orange, Terracotta and Raspberry Paint Dabbers that I have.  The Raspberry was the nearest thing I have to Hot Pink in acrylic.  I do have some Dylusions Ink in Bubblegum Pink but more of that later.  In the end I didn't use the map paper or the tree one on the end.  The three ready made pieces were from the Dina Wakely workshop I went on.

I put the Raspberry acrylic on the plate and this is what I found.  Shadows of last week's play.

Sadly the shadows didn't come out to play.

I played with the orange.

Then I messed about with using lots of different masks/stencils on the gelli plate.  Which is when you realise you really should have turned your stencil over!

And played some more.  I sprayed the Dylusions ink through the stencil.

And then got so wrapped up in playing that I forgot to take photos of the process so here are the finished pages. I also added some black and white paint.

The one on the left here is where I rolled my brayer to clean it and is possibly my favourite background!

So now I have all these backgrounds and have to decide what to do with them for Summer of Color challenge.  You'll have to come back to find out what I decide.

Thanks for stopping by.
