September Grab Bag - Not Just For Digital September 17 2016, 0 Comments

The theme of this month’s Grab Bag, SYMMETRY is so pleasing to me (being a Libra - the scales, I like balance).  Symmetry in everyday language refers to a sense of harmonious and beautiful proportion and balance. And the gemstone outlines appealed to my enjoyment in coloring.


First of all I printed three gemstone outlines from the September Grab Bag.

Then, using Tombow markers, I colored the gemstones making sure to color symmetrically.

I prepared a background using a Gelli™ Printing Plate, one main color (Teal) and a secondary color (Cobalt Blue).

Stamped using an “all over written words” rubber stamp and also a border along the sides with black ink.

Finally, I cut out the colored gemstones and glued along a center axis.  Colored in the border and added some doodles.
