Gelli printed art journal page with masking fluid

I am always thankful for every new tutorial, and as a curious person I also need to try it out of course. And if we talk about a try out why not in my art journal, there nothing can go wrong, it’s just becomes another layer on a spread.

Well it didn’t become just another layer, it looks great. The essence of all great art is gratitude. (F. Nietzsche)


Background: blue and white gelli print with echoes stencil from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer

Second layer: 5 different colors from bright yellow till raw sienna with catalyst tools

The masking fluid worked just perfect, on the left side I used drawing gum or liquid frisquet from Pèbèo,  on the right side I used masking fluid from Winsor & Newton. Both of them makes the magic.

And finally coming to gratitude I need to say thank you for all who leaves comments and encourages me, and thank you for all who follows my artistical tumbles of my everydays.

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hannukah! Suit yourself!

      A lot depends on which frisket you use, I also tried 3 different companies, till I found the best. But it’s great to play with fluid masker so just don’t give it up. Ruth
