#CreatorsForPeace

More than art, today I want to talk about the children in Ukraine. War is always horrible, but when it ends up hurting children directly, is even worse.
This blog is not about politics at all, but I like helping.

I am participating in this #CreatorsForPeace  event, to help, donate and spread information about helping children via UNICEF. 
If you can, please donate:



As you know if you have been in my blog before, I love painting children.  The main reason being that we all need more innocence in our life, and so, anytime I can help a child, I consider it my duty. 
Our duty, as human beings.



I will continue to paint children, to keep trying to find the sweetness of innocence and the joy of our inner child. Thanks for visiting. May you have a beautiful day. ♥

Gelatin printing AND Art Foamies!

I love gelatin printing and I love stamps! Today's project is a lot of fun and super relaxing!
Grab your deli paper HERE
Print or add layers to old printed paper. Watch me printing in this video HERE


Then select a shape, any shape you like or something that matches the celebration of the month (Easter bunny, Christmas tree, Hearts, flowers etc)


Grab your Art Foamies,  In this case I am using an alphabet from Balzer Designs and I love it!



Once you select what mono-printed paper you want, make your "mask out of a sturdy paper. I used a folder paper from the dollar store!


Pick a color, roll it on your gel plate, make marks as extra texture then place your paper with your mask on it to create a "negative space" print and...


Add your Art Foamies Stamps!
I wanted the word Sparkle, but you can personalize with any favorite word!


If you are not into gelatin printing (yet!) then simply paint  your shape and have fun with the Art Foamies stamping!

Watch the video HERE and let me know what you think!
