this is actually the back of a ghost crab but
doesn't it look like a face?? I spotted this creature while walking along the path to the beach.
And this is the front view. He looks like he's
smiling. Fascinating to watch. First time I'd seen one.
And now for the art part. First up is my calendar spread for October:
Inspiration Avenue (October colors theme) the Simon Wednesday Challenge blog (use watercolors), and Kate Cranes Calendar Project. I used both Peerless watercolors and water based markers.
This is the final part in my gelli print play series of techniques. You can see part 1 here and part 2 here. For this final chapter I have chosen to share a variety of projects using up those prints I made in the first two series. These are all pretty quick and easy to complete.
1. Make cards!
2. Make inspiration cards or ATCs
3. Cover a plain ole composition book!

Tempting Templates. Or you can make your own as I did here:

I chose not to write out details and product info for these projects so my post wouldn't be super long. So please, contact me if you have any further questions, I'd be more than happy to help. I hope this has inspired you to take out that plate, make LOTS of papers- and USE THEM so you can make more!
Linking this part to Art Journal Every Day and Paint Party Friday. I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone!
