Embellishing the Monoprints

I had the fantastic idea to use the mono prints from my last post as trades for Art and Soul. The good ones anyway!! Out of 150 I came up with 60 that are good enough to Represent. Ya feel me?? teehee. 10 I am in love with and can't part with, and the remaining 50 I will take with me to trade. I am having a ball embellishing and "filling them out" using contrasting colors, over stamping, gel pens and what not. I am actually going to give them to each classmate in Misty's class and if there are any left over, I'll trade them out. I am hoping Misty will not have more than 50 artists in the class! This is a gonzo trip for me, driving down Friday, Misty's Saturday and Sunday class with Vendor night in between and home on Monday.

These are ready to go. I'm going to present these as tip-ins for altered books or journals. I'm going to write a little intro note and enclose with my bizness card which I am waiting for to deliver post haste. I'll post more prints as I finish them, nothing like taking it down to the wire, no?? I've been in a serious Funk and NOT the good kind of Gettin' Down With My Bad Self Kind of FUNK, since the crash and burn of my love life. I guess I was absent the day they taught Getting Along With Others. sigh. xoSusan


  1. these Are wonderful & the other arists are going to love them! have a fun trip- and did you ever think that maybe the other person is the one who didn't learn to get along?

  2. These are fantastic ! I love the colors and the textures. Oh how I wish I was travelling down to VA to meet you in Misty's class !!!!! I would give that Big Bad Self a huge Big Bad hug, and we could giggle,and talk, and bitch, and make art...I am so glad you will have that chance to go and do that on your own. These are just the kinds of gifts we have to give ourselves to chase the funk far away. Live every second, Wonderful One.

  3. Hey Susan,

    I am of the opinion most artistic types weren't present for that class....I think I was lucky to meet the guy I did, who had no idea what he was in for when he married me!
    The mono prints are really cool---so fun to see how they progressed from the first images!
    Have fun with your trip! Life is good!!!


  4. Love those mono's!!! They're going to be a big hit. Have a fun trip and enjoy every artful second of it. (Somehow I KNOW you will1!!!) And, for the record, I skipped out on that class too. Lucky for me the right guy found ME - warts and all!!! Hus, Terri xoxo

  5. Your creativity amazes me.
    What a talented hands you have.
    Good job!

  6. I am in love! These are fantastic, each better than the one before. I'm so jealous I won't be there. :( Waaah!

    You are going to have a great time - can I go in your pocket?? xx
