I don't give a monkey's

Hello everyone,

For my first 2020 project for AALL & Create I have made an art journal page.

How fun are these monkeys ! 

Here's how I made this page: 

I made a gelliprint with acrylic paint and used this stencil to add some interest. I rolled the paint onto the gelli plate, put the stencil on it and then bartered over again. I then took the stencil off and printed. 

Here's a better picture of what it looks like. 

Next I used this stencil to add more interest. This time I used it in the traditional way by putting it onto my print and dabbing white paint through it. 

Next I stamped the background randomly with the mesh stamp and the numbers of the brush stamp. I used Distress Oxide ink and black Versafine Clair. 

Next I added black paint along the edges and used this stencil to add some texture paste. 

I die cut this and planned to use the numbers too. But in the end I just used part of the main die cut. 

I stamped, coloured and cut out the monkeys. 

Cut out another die.. only used part of this one too, to hang the monkey on. 

And here it is all put together... so much fun to make !
