Making Messes

Hi, everybun! We have noticed an unfortunate turn of events on the interwebs lately, with Human Beans trying to embarrass their Bunny Overlords, this page being a prime example.  Clearly, you have all taken leave of what little sense you Beans have. Perhaps you should spend some time reacquainting yourself with the True Order of the Universe over at Disapproving Rabbits.

Which isn't to say that we can't make a mess if we want to, but around here, the biggest mess-maker is Mom! But maybe she can tell you about her latest adventure. I'll be back later. 
OK. First, welcome to Thumper S. Thompson. It is an honor to have a journalist of your stature reading our humble blog! Second, from the comments on my last post, it sounds like a lot of you have the tickle of the beginnings of an art journaling bug. I hope you jump in, and give it a try. It's always fun to be a kid again.
Which brings us back to mess-making! Yesterday I had my Gelli Arts printing plate out again.  I love this thing! I only needed one print, but by the end of the afternoon, I had this.
Some of these were printed more than once, and some still need some additional color. About 1/3 are wonderful. Here are a few that I like.  This first one has a print from the "wrong" side of a stencil across it.

On this one, I stamped and stenciled on top of left-over color on the plate.

The Curly One and I both like this one best.

By adding color on top of white, I even managed to get some pastels. I have a secret love of pastels, even though most of my artwork and quilts end up in deep colors.

Now, to choose one to do a LifeBook project on. This could take a while....
I'm back, but not for long. While Mom is lost in her paint daydreams, I think I'm going to head on over to Harrington's place. I feel like a party, and he's always ready to party!
 See you all later, Buns and Beans.

You bunnehs gotta let us slaves have some fun once in a while, Jensen--after all, a bored slave is a destructive slave. ;)

Love the prints! I'm not a pastel person at all, so I'm all for fun with bold colors.

I'm loving all those prints. This is my favorite kind of mess to make. ;)
Jensen, Harrington would love to have you come over and party.

Let those bunnies run around on paper and paints ... probably get a Rembrandt out of it?

Nice prints - great colors. Some nice fall in there.
