Gelatos! Have you seen them? Have you played with them yet? They are f.u.n. Watch Shari Caroll do some simple art journaling with Gelatos here.
Dyan Reaveley is such a fun artist to watch on video. I love her personality that shines through in everything she does. This ghosting technique she does using her Dylusions spray inks is one of my favorites. Click here.
This is a fun introduction to mono printing with a Gelli Plate. I have recently started playing with a Gelli plate...you can spend hours (and hours) just playing. If you have crafty children...they will love this too. BTW, cheap paint works great (like the $.69 stuff...go wild! It was one of the most fun things I have ever done with paint)!
Playdough recipe. This is themost wonderful dough I have ever played with...including the store brand! My three-year old is ecstatic! hereFollow up note: it is still her favorite dough! She takes it with her to her friends' houses because they all want to play with it instead of Playdough. It is softer and doesn't dry out quickly. And you can make it any color you want.
Christy Tomlinson is my current favorite mixed media artist! I am fascinated by her process! This is one of my favorite of her videos. Have fun watching!
