Nature Is The Art Of God

Hi everyone, Debbie here with you today to share my take on Marivic's "Autumn Is In The Air" Challenge!  Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  I love the cool, crisp air and the magnificent colors of the leaves when they change color.  I chose to make a canvas for my project.

It was quite an art adventure working with products from our sponsors this month, Speedball Art Products and Gelli Arts.  I started off with Speedball paint in dark yellow and added some additional paints in yellow and Orange.  I used a leaf stencil on my background but must admit as I added more layers of paint to my Gelli plate everything sort of blended in together.  I used a paper towel to dab some of the paint on my canvas and love the marbled effect it took on.

I added some stamping and masking to my canvas along with some misting and inking and flowers.  

I hope I have inspired you to join us this month for Marivic's challenge.  You can find all of the details here.

We love gelatin printing and we've developed a better way to do it!

Our Gel Printing Plate looks and feels like gelatin, but is durable, reusable and stores at room temperature. It's easy to clean and always ready for printing. Monoprinting on a Gelli plate is simple and fun. The gratification is immediate, and the prints are too cool!
