I was able to do some creating today while my kids were visiting Nana and Pop Pop. I found a wonderful product from Gelli Arts. It's basically a gelatin plate without having to make it at home.
All you need is acrylic paint, a brayer, a variety of stencils, texture making materials, foam stamps and paper and you can have a paper making party!
I rolled out a couple of colors on an acrylic sheet (you can use a paper pallet or roll it on the Gelli Plate)
Then I put a variety of things down on the plate to create texture
Then I laid the paper on top. Gently rubbed around. Lifted the paper off to reveal my print. You can do this several times to create more layers and interest.
Here are the papers I made today. I used solid color scrapbook paper, crumpled tissue paper and plain copy paper.
