Beginning to Create

In the beginning there were blank pages and it was good. . .
Then there were leaves. . .
and a gelli plate. . .

and stencils. . .
and paint. . .
and it was all very, very good!






I decided to start my Sketchbook project off by monoprinting on all of the pages (plus a few more) using acrylic paint on a Gelli Plate.  You must try one if you haven't already.  Such a simple way of making monoprints!  I am hoping these prints will help me with the "blank page" fear I sometimes develop.  Just looking at the pages I'm afraid a new "I might ruin it" fear is developing.  The best thing will be to just dig in and go for it - after I admire the backgrounds for a few more days.

I am creating a new page on my blog to collect all of my posts about my journey with The Sketchbook Project.  You will be able to see all the posts together here.

I like the way to put this post together. It is clever and informative, and beautiful. Thanks for inspiration to get to work.

I read about your sketchbook on artquilt list and so glad I had a look at your blog. Your sketchbook looks great already! Just bought a Gelli plate myself and must give it a go. I've been doing the Sketchbook project myself too, this is my 4th one but I haven't started it yet. You can see my previous sketchbooks here:

Your pages are wonderful. I must pluck up the courage to try this one day.
