I busted out the gelli plate today with my Artistcellar stencils and some random acrylic paints. Good grief it's addicting!! I like to print on deli paper because of its translucency and it's easy to tear for collage.
I picked one of my favorite prints I created to use today. I used the Star Flower stencil from the Artistcellar Quilt Series and pulled multiple prints on the same piece.
I used matte medium to stick the deli paper down in my new Dina Wakley Blue Journal. The geometric design reminded me of large flowers, so I lightly sketched in petals around each 'point' of the quilt pattern.
I painted a watery navy-blueish color around the flowers, still wanting some of the patterning to show thru...but think I might've been a little heavy handed.
Once completely dry, I added rough, messy outlines in black and white, not truly adhering to the exact shape of each petal. A blob of paint in the center and TADAH! A colorful, abstract garden.
What are your favorite stencils to use on the gelli plate? I would love to learn some new techniques, so stop by the Artistcellar Facebook group and share your prints with us!
