ABC Wednesday - B and C


It is time once again for ABC Wednesday. I missed "B" last week as marking and  report cards took most of my time.
So, today I am combining both letters. They both develop out of the :

Brayer - which led to Colour and collage  on cards



A brayer is used to spread paint on a surface. I have been using a gelli plate lately and used the brayer to spread 2 different colours on the plate. Then stencils were placed on the platetto imprint a design. A paper was then laid down on top of the paint surface. The design was picked up.

Here are a couple of papers done:


From the papers I cut some ATC size cards for backgrounds to create some collage cards.








Be sure to check out how others have approached "C" this week here.
