ABC Wednesday



This week at ABC Wednesday, our letter of focus is "H".

I have chosen H for Horizontal.

In art, horizontal lines run parallel to the horizon.

I have been working with a gelli plate lately and was trying out a process of using foam sheets to create my own stamp.(check here for a wonderful tutorial on this process and a link to the gelli plate website)
As I cut the foam, and taped the pieces  down, the lines  became  horizontal.


 I followed this up with printing with the stamp.


Once dry, the sheet reminded me of water. I then created this ATC:



Be sure to check how others around the world focus on H  here.

Every time I read your blog, I really, really, really want to create art. I want to go find a gelli-plate, even though I'm not exactly sure what they are and some ink and create. I still want to know more about the process. In the "revere all life" one, did you draw the one dolphin. Did you get the other stamp off the internet or ??? So very cool! Thanks so much for opening up a whole new world to me!
