woyww 158? monoprints!

Yay!  Gelli Plate!


One of my favorite friends called yesterday, and she always inspires me to
go make something! Got out my new Gelli Plate, and printed off a bunch of
backgrounds.  Could have made monoprints all day--that was some great
art therapy, let me tell you!  Instead, however, started making them into a book . . .

Come join in the what's on your workdesk? Wednesday fun HERE--
thank you, as always, to Julia for kindly hostessing the weekly party!

You are so blessed to have a friend that inspires you creatively. But now you have inspired me to find out what this Geli plate is all about because I truly have to make some of those. I love the colors. Can't wait to see what you do with your book. I am going straight to google what this is and find out where to get it and try it. So your friend has not only inspired you, she inspired me too.

Come play at my desk when you are free!

Love what you've done! The sequin scrap makes a great stencil! I should try this (I have a Gelli plate - unopened LOL), but I have an aversion to really messy stuff LOL.

Love those papers, that plate looks like so much fun!

Tristan, it's not as messy as you might think--it's all pretty contained, especially if you cover the prints with a paper before pressing them with your hands. I usually end up covered with paint, but not a drop yesterday! I left the plastic cover on one side of the plate, and then laid it inside a big tray, that made it easier, too.

I have seen this advertised in Stampington & co publications and it has certainly caught my interest, not sure if available in the U.K.
Great papers and as for your friend, I have no doubt you inspire her as much as she inspires you.

Now, that sounds like good, squelchy, messy fun! I've never heard of a Gelli plate before but can guess what you get up to with it!! et you'd have to fight your kids off otherwise they'd be using it all the time!

That's pretty funny you say that, Jan, because I used it for the first time that day, and my daughter is away at camp! Coincidence???

Hmmm . . .

LOVE! I love what you did! I did some today too, though I don't have one of those, so I just improvised.

Fantastic, Diana! I'm actually writing up a couple tutorials right now about using what you have, instead of feeling like you have to buy certain supplies!
