Rest, Stencil and Teabags

Hi Everyone! 

You know I said I didn't like long posts, well I'm popping 3 different things on this one because I want to get out of the house this afternoon. Yes, the thaw has started! Yippee!

First, here is my penultimate Art Marks page. Day 27's word is Rest. I'm not planning to Rest anytime soon, I love making art and blogging every day! Actually, making art is my Rest.

Next, I'm sharing my Gelli Plate prints for Birgit's March Challenge. Day Three's prompt is to use Stencils.

And finally, here are my seven teabags for 365 Somethings, Week Nine. Doodles on a stencilled gesso base, with a little watered green acrylic added for some colour. My 'tulips' on the right, are bending in the wind! Hahaha

Happy Saturday Everyone,

  1. Yahoo for the thaw beginning. I bet you are excited to get out of the house. Loving all the art today, and I want to mention you inspired me to pull out the Gelli plate yesterday. I haven't printed in months and it was fun! happy weekend. hugs-Erika

  2. Fabulous pieces Alison and I might be coming back to thank you too, as I've had a set of the mini Gelli shapes since about November and haven't opened the packet yet.
    Great inspiration from you!
    Couldn't believe after having more snow last night that its actually above zero at last and is melting :)
    Have fun getting out today, hope its not too cold and icy.

  6. I hope you had fun today out and about 😁. Wow, where do I start with all these amazing makes! Your page is beautiful and I love the triangular shapes on the teabags. The Gelli plates stencils look wonderful, I may have to get one of 😉. And your teabags are stunning with the gesso and doodles, you made me smile about the tulips blowing in the wind too 😁. Happy weekend! J 😊

  7. Fantastic art pieces. I love the page and the fantastic details you added to the tea bags, each one looks lovely.

  11. Your idea of "long" posts makes mine look ginormous. You never seem to rest, so this Art Mark entry is especially lovely. Of course, the tea bags add that special interest to the page, too.

    Your gelli play makes me wish I had time to do the same. But I have so much trouble setting the area up, it takes a day just to do so, then another to take it all down. I'm glad you have a place and a way to create your gelli play time. These are lovely.

    And of course, I love this latest week's worth of 365 somethings. I keep being amazed at how different and unique you can create these teabag entries each week. They are fabulous.


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop here. I love to hear what you think, every comment is very much appreciated.
