Seven Fish Haiku

I learned this technique from Carla Sonheim to create a drawing with just seven lines.  Carla calls it a haiku drawing, I call it FUN!  🙂

I created seven different shapes of fish – each one with just seven lines in my sketchbook:

Next, I brushed some watercolor paint onto my Gelli Plate and stamped it onto my paper.  I love the unexpected results of this technique!

I like that the Gelli Plate is available in a variety of sizes now such as this one which is 3 x 5 inches:

Have you ever used a Gelli Plate for stamping or monoprinting?  I’d love if you shared your experience with me!

Cheers! 🙂
