ARTFUL TACTICS with Tamie




TECHNIQUE  - MONO PRINTING WITH PLASTICS BAGS 

* * * * * * * * * * * 


I have a step-by-step photo tutorial for you today. It is fun and easy and you will get tons of interesting effects. I found this idea on Pinterest.  This is a great technique if you do not have a gelli plate for mono-printing.  Same basic overall effect.  Try it with stencils, too!




Start off with some acrylics and a plastic bag (YEAH, we get to recycle!!) Since I had a long bag, I just cut it into three pieces.



With a paint brush or even your fingers paint a design or shape.


 Place bag upside down onto your page and rub paint onto paper. Use your heat source to dry.




On another bag do the same thing but different color and different shape. Repeat by placing bag upside down and rubbing a bit. Then dry again.



Look how  cool it is coming out!   Don't stop now, grab another bag and another color and shape.



Look at all this yumminess!!!




I added some Gelatos for a little more color and shape.




Deliciousness there baby!!!! 



To finish my page I used a collage doll from CBD.  You can find them HERE at her store or find her at her Facebook page.


With a black and red wax pencil I drew in my wording and outlined the girl.

Also here are a couple other samples I did and some "Tip-ins" with them.








Have a wonderful day, go get your art on and find your madness!!
