Gelli Plate Playtime
Last week I did a demonstration at my craft club using the 5x3 inch Gelli Plate, followed by a make and take workshop and a giveaway of 3 Gelli Plates and mini brayers. So in preparation for the demo, I made about 20 prints in various colours, using various stencils, bits of lace, bubblewrap, etc. Out of all of them, this was my favourite print - I love how there's still a bit of colour in the white spaces, and it almost looks like it's embossed, but it's completely flat.
To finish off the panel, I masked the central print and stamped around the edges with Mixed Media Elements and Mixed Media Grunge.
I'm entering this into TIME OUT - if you look closely at the inspiration photo you'll see blues and greens on the globe.
I'm also entering into Cupcake Inspirations - blue green and white. Hope it's not too grungy!
A few weeks ago I bought this photo multi frame, with the idea that I would gradually fill each 6x4 aperture with a new piece of artwork, but as soon as I got it home I ended up filling every aperture with various background panels from my stash because I couldn't stand to see all the blanks! There's just enough room to slot the panels in front of the glass, so I can chop and change the images easily without having to take the frame down. It's on my craft room wall, and it makes me happy every time I look at it. Here's what it looks like at the moment, but I think today's panel will be finding its way on there soon!
