Gelliplate Layers- Video

Today I was working in the studio on layers…creating a rich depth of color and texture in my work…

One of my favorite tools for this, believe it or not is the Gelliplate…

I decided to create a short video to show you how I do it….

My biggest tip to create rich texture and color in 2-3 pulls is to begin with a dirty plate, (one in which you left old paint to dry from a previous session)…this is 50% of what makes this technique successful…

Enjoy❣

  
Much Love and Peace…

Pages From My 365 Days Project…

I started this project on January 1st of this year…the purpose was to bring focus and direction to my time in the studio….

I must say that this project exceeded my expectations…l found more inspiration than I was able to create or translate into other media!  Plus the added bonus of beautiful richly textured journals….I’ll do a year end reveal…

Until then here are more page compilations from the past few weeks…

Enjoy!
