Julie Fei-Fan Balzer Painted and Printed Papers class

I had a great time yesterday at Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's Painted and Printed Papers class in Masonville, CO.  The workshop was organized by the Masonville Artists' Studio and Always Be Creating (link).

Like Julie's apron says, we got dirty (and paint covered and had a fabulous day).

 We played with creating our own stencils. Hand:


And creating color and layers.

 I love poppies. Here is a shot of the giant ones in my front yard that are just now blooming.  When we started gelli printing, I was drawn to Julie's poppies stencils.

So I used them, a lot.

 Then I did quite a few flowers.

I did do a ton more, but these are the most finished of the bunch.

While driving home, there was a great view of the mountains, and since I will be moving to Nebraska soon, I thought I'd stop and take a picture.  I turned of the highway and went a ways down a dirt road to get through an area with houses.  At the end of the road, there was a bunch of rusted farm equipment, which I thought added to the picture. Bye Mountains,  I have about three weeks, then I won't be seeing you are a while.


  1. Those are really nice, I like them all.

  2. These are all very unique and beautiful pieces of art! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks Teres! I am going to do more gelli plate printing tomorrow!
