Yep, that's right...the three ingredients to an afternoon of good, messy fun. I've had my gelli plate for awhile, but I'm finally getting around to using it.
Of course, I added a few other items to make it really interesting: stencils, string, corrugated paper, a Sizzix machine and hand carved rubber stamps. Before I started pulling prints off of the gelli plate, I cut out some shapes with my Sizzix machine to be used to mask out areas on the gelli plate.
Now it's show and tell time.
I rolled two different colors of paint onto the plate. Then I pressed my stamp into the plate and stamped onto the paper.
These prints were done using a combination of my own stamps and Crafter's Workshop stencils.
The stencils are fun to use!
The pattern in the print on the right came from another of my hand cut stamps.
More combinations of hand-carved stamps and Crafter's Workshop stencils.
These were done with string layed over the gelli plate. The one on the far right was done with the string removed.
These were done with die cuts and corrugated cardboard.
The one on the left was done by painting on the gelli plate.
These pages will be terrific in an art journal or as part of a mixed media painting. I'll be linking up to A Colorful Gelli Print Party. Thanks for visiting!
Until next time,
