Hello fellow creatives, Rochelle here from rockmelon recycled. Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day to play with art supplies. Today I’m showing you how I play with paint, ink sprays, brusho crystals, stencils and a gelli plate. At the end of our messy, painty play we’ll all have 16 unique arty cards to post, pin to an inspiration board, frame or leave in the public library to bring happy to someone’s day!
Here we go (I hope you’ve had coffee… grab your paints, stencils and inks and play along!) And don’t forget coffee… lots of coffee).
Ink Sprays: Dylusions (after midnight, crushed grape, cut grass, squeezed orange, bubblegum pink)
Watercolour paper: Try the fabulous Prima watercolour pads in A4
Colourcraft Brusho Crystals (yellow)
Stencils: Donna Downey (Butterfly)
Gelli plate (I used 5×7)
Soft rubber brayer (for gelli plate paint application)
Water in a spray bottle
Paper trimmer or scissors
Paper towel, damp washer for clean up

And don’t let you inner critic tell you that you can’t paint, go right ahead, it will be silenced when you begin to paint. Have a great week everybody!
