Part II Mono Printing Again and Art Classes

I spent all day Friday with phase II of Mono Printmaking. [See new slide show above this post]
This time I took Mim's suggestion and tried it without the gelatin. I simply used the bottom of a metal bowl turned up side down. It worked great. I love the bright colors...I now have 12 more large and medium sized prints. First they dried in the sun again, got ironed to set the paint and then pinned...and cut out and sandwiched...
then I sewed around the outer edges with a machine satin stitch.
Tomorrow I will do the top sewing...
I love the sparkle that the glitter glue adds to the paint...
and these fall colors...
Today I signed up for two art classes at the community college. Both on Sundays, one in September and one in October. They are both taught by the same teacher I had last time for the Drawing Without Fear and Watercolor classes. I really like this teacher. He is so positive.
The new classes are: Drawing as Meditation and
Creative Watercolor Methods and Techniques.
I can hardly wait.
Happy Birthday to Laurel of Studio Lolo.
Thanks to everyone who sent positive thoughts and healing prayers for my ill friends.
