Posts Tagged ‘Gelly Roll Pen’

I started this little 4″ x 4″ Pink Pig book  a couple of years ago. I intend to fill it with quotes that I love and pages that I have decorated. I used a rubber stamp to print the tile design and a Gelly Roll pen to outline  it and to write the quote. Some people can be a bit sniffy about using rubber stamps, I see them as a design tool and they can be used in very artistic ways. The left hand page has a thin layer of gesso on first and an ink wash over the top.  I really like the fact that paint and ink from the pages in front and behind have found their way onto these pages and have created their own pathways. What a great quote ” Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can!”    Perhaps we should all be throwing around a bit more paint in our lives! What do you think?
