After a day of rain, we have another beautiful sunny day, although I think it must be humid as I've been sweating all morning. I went to the market, did a few odds and ends at home while my husband is golfing. I'm hoping that after a rest, he'll feel like going to the beach and taking supper with us. I've made a corn and black bean salad.
Last night, I was feeling like doing something a little different, so I got out my paints, the printing Gelli and some blank cards.
I have a few old phone books where I press flowers and leaves over the summer months.
I used Queen Anne's Lace for these.
The ones with the off white background are the 'ghost' prints.
The left card in the next shot was done with a piece of pressed Allium.
There were unused areas left on the Gelli so I pulled some little tags.
I even used deli paper to print up the leftover bits. This one is a ghost print from a fern. It is so pretty that I think I must get some fabric ready for the next session.
I'll glue this to a sketchbook page sometime or maybe even a canvas.
