I know I left you hanging yesterday, like a leaf on a tree… LOL! So here it is – the moment you have been waiting for – a before and after photo of my watercolor leaves! 😉
I finished them with gesso and added some “leaf” notes for my hubby and myself with pencil. I thought these little reminders would be great to put on the fridge or left in unexpected places. We all like to feel loved and appreciated! 🙂
The other images are gift tags I’m making for another project. I painted these on both sides with watercolor and the gesso – here is an example of one I made for myself:
I added a little glitter to these tags too. Other ideas are tucking them into a card for a friend, give as a bookmarker or use as a place setting at a special dinner, like Easter. They are fun to write a message of inspiration on one side and a person’s name on the other side but you could do whatever you want.
Speaking of shapes, here are my leftover stencils:
One of the nice things about gesso is that it works as a glue so was able to complete their shapes by gluing there openings closed. I could then use the negative and positive shapes on my gelli-printing plate!
The above is an example of using my positive and negative shapes with layers of Golden Fluid Acrylic paints. Aren’t they just AWESOME?!
I will show you more of my gelli prints tomorrow – oh, the colors!!! :-)))
P.S. If you were to leave a “leaf” note for yourself or someone, what would it say?! I’d love to hear from you!
