Hello! I’ve been having a blast playing with the new Gelatin Printing Enthusiasts packs over at ArtStacks! I love that we can create art and support artists at the same time! I used one of Nitsa Malik’s images from the Art & Life pack.

In keeping with the gelatin printing theme, all the papers are my own geli-prints.

I thought the image of the surfer against a colourful sunrise was very evocative and it inspired me to write these words. I find it challenging to write lettering like this but I really like the result and I’m glad I took the time to do it.

Have you seen the new packs at ArtStacks yet? You can find them here.

Happy creating!

An Inspirational Board at Kraft +

Ohhh, the challenge this month at Kraft + is to be inspired by their challenge board and it's a beauty! I took my inspiration from the black and white stripes and the pink-orange pattern.

Here's the challenge board:

To make my stripes, I took a digital words and quotes page from an ArtStacks pack and printed it at half size on both white and kraft cardstock. I tore these into strips and layered them at different heights.

I found a piece of patterned paper that was almost identical to the one in the challenge board, however most of it is hidden behind the photo!

What will your photo inspiration be? You can find the challenge here.

Happy scrappin'!
