Something green

Today morning I took my son to school, and I realized that spring time is at our door. As I walked down the street I saw the first little green signs on the trees, even somehow the grass looked greener. So I got a blooming green mood.

Something green

I took some pieces of old map and I made a collage on a canvas. I pulled out my gelli plate and I monoprinted green on my collage in different shades from yellowish green to light green and finally dark green. I found some pieces of acrylic skin with green and I just had to apply it. The orange gave me even more the feeling of spring. I made some paper flowers of course in the color of green! I added some more stuff till I felt satisfied with my green creation. I decided I love the color of green. Here is a close up:

I am adding it to Inspiration avenue’s weekly challenge: green art and to Inspiration Emporium’s monthly challenge: a splash of color!

  2. great canvas, what are the green and orange lines, looks like puffy paint? and I need to do some research on acrylic skins.

      The green and orange lines are the “acrylic skin”. Take a page protector, draw or paint anything, let it dry overnight, cover it with a layer or tar gel medium, let it dry for another day, peal it of from the page protector… ready to play for collages 😉 one remark: it’s fragile after it’s dry!

    This is lovely, what a nice way to express the feeling that you got after a morning walk. green is one of my favourites too, restful but full to bursting with ‘new’.
