On My Table, April 24

I'm behind on a bunch of things I wanted to get done this week (going back to work flattened me, and I hate that!). But today I really needed to play with some paint. So I caught up a little bit with my Wanderlust lessons. Played with alcohol inks mixed with my paints on the gel plate. Got one print I especially liked, but the edges didn't lift so the actual print area wasn't big enough for what I wanted to do. So I made another one (and a couple more because gel printing!) and got this, and I'm pretty satisfied with this. And feeling better after having some play time.

The takeaway--sometimes, even if you have a lot to do, you have to step back and get in some creative play time to lighten up and give yourself a boost so you can get on with all the other stuff.

    I love this spread, and you’re right, a moment’s play can make all the difference!

    That's a really lovely spread, the background is so pretty. I am loving wanderlust, I have learnt so much and I'm realising my art is becoming looser because of it.

      Thank you! I'm loving it, too. I think it really is a big help in loosening up--I think I am loosening up, too.

    That is so pretty. I'm glad you persevered! I hear you...sometimes it can all seem too much, even adding art or creativity in there but like you I find that when I do, everything else gets just a little less big. <3

      Yes! It's annoyingly amusing that something that makes us feel better is so hard to get started on sometimes.

      Thanks! It was fun. I love gel plates and never knowing exactly what's going to come out.
