And now for something completely different.

Good morning, we have enjoyed some glorious almost spring like days recently. It was warm enough  to enjoy a cuppa outside in the garden yesterday. The sun had it's first real warmth of the year in it.
My walks to Dotty's were bathed in sunshine too.

It is of course time for my Monday Make for Visible Image and I have been busy designing with the fab new mixed media sets. They have now been released and are all all available to buy on the website here .   Last week I shared my winter butterflies post and this week it is time for something very different from me.

I used the brilliant art rebel set and wow it is just awesome.
and words for the World need art set

Just its name inspired me to get out my acrylic paints and using that awesome big fish pull some Gelli plate prints. I decided to make an art panel. 

I got out my large Gelli plate and I pulled lots....look out for them in the coming months.
Here is the one I used for my project coming off the's always exciting to see what has happened.
I added some more stamping using the other stamps from the set.
I then trimmed it down.
This is my final background showing a few close ups.

The colours made me thing of Andy Warhol so I decided to something whacky with the Art Rebel.
When I stamped out his hair and gave it tints of red, yellow and blue (why not 😃)
I also stamped and fussy cut out some of the small fish  as I had whacky plans for those too.

I then had such fun putting together my art panel. Here it is.
I'll talk you through with some close ups as there are lots of little details which get missed in the single photo. I cut out one lens from each pair of goggles. For the red rebel I put the fish through and then filled the hole with Glossy Accent to remake the "lens"

 The yellow haired rebel has one of the fish on the Gelli print inside.
and the blue one has the fish eye stamp and a fish in his mouth.

One final shot
You can have such fun with this set and as I said I have lots of fun prints to play with too.

I would like to link up my art panel into the following challenges;
