50/50  #10

50/50 (10)

Today was very productive creating backgrounds.  The ideas were coming as fast as I could get them down on the paper.  Usually, when I am working on a piece, I get ideas for variations and I want to change horses in mid stream.  Creating these small pieces goes very quickly, so I am able to finish one idea and then immediately put together the new idea I had which then generates a third idea, etc.  I am getting inspired by some of the materials I have created in the past.   I only have 5 boards left to do, then I will start putting drawings on them.  

The piece I am showing here is on painted deli paper following some of the ideas in the Ann Bagby DVD's from Creative Catalyst.  I made them on this gel mono-printing plate I bought from Interweave Press.
