It's a place where I can gather thoughts and ideas and color......... it's a place where I come to play, make messes..... and share them with you.
Gelli Plate Addiction
At some point in my travels of bargain sale hunting I came across a pack of black, blank note cards and envelopes. A dollar for ten envelopes and these which folded out.
The paper is sort of grainy and a bit like light weight card stock. I got out my gelli plate and played. These are some of what I came up with.
Note my recent hand carved stamp in the upper right corner of the first one.
Can you tell how I made these? I did not use one color at a time. I used several colors placed randomly on the plate and then "brayered" each spot how I wanted it to spread. It took several times to place the paper where I wanted it to be on the plate. I thought the results were amazingly pretty, especially on this black paper. I think it is possible to use the folded paper without an envelope. Just write or art on the inside and tape it up with washi tape or a sticker or something. I shall see.
Tomorrow I will show you my results with envelopes and the gelli plate.
I think I need to get out of my pajamas and get out for some air. Thanks for visiting..................................................jo
