Monoprinting in Art Journaling

MonoPrinting is not something new...or Gellli Plate art a many of better now...this art is very old and it originates from the good old days of printing (screen printing) 

Monoprinting is a form of printmaking that has lines or images that can only be made once, unlike most printmaking, where there are multiple originals. There are many techniques of monoprinting. Examples of standard printmaking techniques which can be used to make monoprints include lithography, woodcut, and etching...

But we in art journaling have taken this next level adding layes of colors, silhouettes, shapes and tones of imagination.. 
I use my gel plate creations for so many things, including creating quick backgrounds on things like paper, tags, envelopes and fabric.

For my page this week, I used the Gelli® plate to create a background on a piece of newsprint paper and then I glued it to the base of my journal page. I followed up with doodles, stencils, stickers and scribbles and here how it looks! :)

Lets Talk about Zine's...What is a Zine!

What is a Zine??

Wikipedia defines it as "a small circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images usually reproduced via photocopier" - although the term is often used to describe any magazine aimed at a niche audience. Generally, there's some kind of hand-crafted element to its creation.

Normally include 8 small pieces of small can mix and match...add different technics paint, water color, collage, stencils..etc

Zine-making a great way to both create new and alternative works of art and design, and to collect and share existing but unusual work with other artists and enthusiasts. So how do you get started? Here are some simple beginners' steps that will hopefully inspire you to get up and running with your own zines.

This one was created by a friend Artist Rosalyn Lopez


And Here How it look before it is folded! πŸ˜‰  Beautiful Work! and so much Fun Yo should try it too!

Love at 1st Sight!

Happy Wednesday !

Sharing with you some inspiration!  this amazing marking Journal from AALL...Love everything about it the colors, the size ...the markings! πŸ’—

Take a close look to these pages ...there is no specific patterns or symmetry ....but there are layers ..many layers....which means that in order to see each of those layers, you need to wait for each one to dry to avoid muddy colors! and get these amazing results and stunning colors!πŸ‘€

2nd Inspiration today came from a walk @ Walmart LOL Yes!! while doing grocery shopping! LOL  
Love this sign and word ART- and Vintage ...the Doris Day, Audrey and even Alfred Hitchcock's movie covers and The Birds.. OMG were so great!  So something will be coming from this for my "Once Upon a Time" Journal Workshop, which i will teaching in October! πŸŽƒ...So stay Tune!

And What Inspire You today????
 Jackie πŸ’Ÿ
