Making a stencil and foam stamps

It is hot and humid and I did not sleep well last night, so I'm taking it a bit easy today, finding things I could do in the basement where it's a bit cooler.
I finally added a coat of paint to the primed coffee table. The green will be darker once it dries and darker again after another coat. I'm pretty happy with it.

I brought my sketchbook down to my drawing/painting table to where I cut a few campanula blossom shapes from fun foam.
This is a little spot I have downstairs where I do my printing, dyeing and painting.

I also traced a design onto plastic which I will cut out to make a stencil.

Just before making my lunch, I spread some matte medium onto this piece of Gelli printed deli paper from a previous printing session. I may experiment with the stamps on this when it's dry.

This afternoon, though, I'm heading out for a blood test and a quick errand. And tomorrow I'm heading out on a road trip for some shopping with friends.
