The holidays have been so nice this year as we have decided to spend as much time as possible relaxing at home. We've chosen just a few family dinners and events and nothing else. So yesterday after the rush of Christmas was over, the boys were totally involved with their new toys and games and I found myself perusing an invitation to play with paint and fabric. There are few things as healing and calming for me lately as spending few hours playing with my passion, especially in the company of a friend. So, I said yes and I had so much fun yesterday doing gel monoprints. Pat is such a good teacher because she gives you the tools you need and then the freedom to do your own thing. So here are 10 photos of my new monoprint stash. I can't wait to play with them over the next few months.
