Medium Lifts

One of the MOST exciting things about printing is creating one's own unique surface. No more simply printing on fabric or shiny photo paper! Make it your OWN!
This is the content of my Digital Explorations Workshop- see workshop tab at the top of the blog for more info. 
Here's a clipped video of creating a medium lift.
last sentence was- " It just peels up all that leftover paint making unique marks on the surface you placed on the gel medium surface." And yes- It's FUN and uses up the leftover paint making the plastic clean again for additional use!

Collaging the surface

My last piece, Layers of Meaning, was made from a very large collage with a photo printed overlay of silk organza and hand sewed on to the top.
I am creating another collage background with gesso overpainted photographs from an advertisement. 
I’m debating whether to print on directly on top or do another silk organza overlay. What do you think?
