SHOW SOME CREATIVITY SATURDAY #9
First off, I want to ask your opinion on my new glasses. I liked them when I picked them out, but my daughter thinks they look too wide. Be honest, what do you think?
So on to something new I tried creating. A local church has opened up an art ministry where anyone can come and join in on art classes they offer on making various types of creations. They offer the classes absolutely free! Isn't that an awesome gift to give your community?
At this class I learned how to create
Foam and Lino Cut Block Printing.
This is part of my sketch pressed into foam with a pencil.
I started with a thin piece of foam and used a pencil to sketch on my design. Then I went back over my sketch by pressing harder with the pencil to make my indents. Next I rolled on some paint and then pressed it onto the paper to make my print. I actually like my sketch on the foam with paint still on it better than the actual printed piece on the paper.
The is the entire sketch penciled onto foam. There is paint left over on the sketch from when it was printed onto paper.
This is my sketch that I printed on paper from my foam.
It was really fun learning this and I can see where you could use this in collage art or even make a design to print directly onto a wall as a stencil etc..
If you have a creation you'd like to
share with us,
just leave your link in a comment below.
I used to have
Mr. Linky attached to these
SHOW SOME CREATIVITY SATURDAY posts
but didn't get much response.
I will put Mr. Linky back up if I start to get
more people leaving comments about
wanting me to do it again.

somebody to divide it with."
HAVE A WONDERFUL VALENTINES DAY AND A GREAT WEEKEND!
