Introducing Mary Ann Russo's Art Journal

Today's post is the first of many to show the pages of an art journal created by my friend Mary Ann Russo.  Each page of her beautiful journal is made from half of a multi-layered Gelli Plate print.  Below, you see the left page followed by the right (facing) page.

In making these Gelli Plate prints, Mary Ann chose several stencils from  The one she used with her green paint was my 9"x12" stencil Twinship.  The stencil itself looks like this:

Mary Ann's multiple-layer printing shows how beautifully a stencil's design can improved upon, in creating art that's much more eye-pleasing and complex than when any one stencil is used by itself.

More of Mary Ann's art journal pages will be posted here ... stay tuned!
