Lots of fun was had by all! We went over basic plate info and care, color application and paper choice. Then we introduced textures, stamps, mark makers, stencils and more. Here are a few of my favorite prints from students :
This comes from Gina W. and I am SO stricken by the depth in this piece.
This print is by Christine W. and she as super bold and reached for Metallic paints.
She also used lots of UmWowStudio stencils and man....
this print is rooted in my vintage soul!!
This print is by Kimberly and the color combo... tho not my usual style...
is SO striking. Cheeeese louise. Isn't it cool???
This one is by Lynne and there might be "much" going on --- but I LOVE this..
the textures, the layers, the subtlety.. eek. I believe this was
her ghost print from her gradient play.
And now for a few prints of my own... I really enjoyed printing on some papers that already had some sort of pattern... in this case a piece of lined notebook paper and some graph paper. I also really loved showing the class how fun it can be to get surprise bits from your plate if you hold off on cleaning in between colors and prints.
And that's it! Lots of color and texture play... layering, printing, dabbing, printing. Can't wait to have the videos edited and ready to share via online class! :)
