Playing with Gelli

Having read Barbara Gray's blog I felt inspired to give some of her techniques a go and here's what I came up with.

I used the Gelli plate and a stencil together with a wooden stamp of old handwriting (which I noticed has come out backwards after using it on the Gelli plate but I like the effect) to 'print' my image. You can see Barbara's step by step here.

I then used her idea in this tutorial using gilding flakes for the edges.

I have printed the background paper from Pollyanna Pickering's British Wildlife CD and used Iced Spruce Distress Ink around the edges.

  4. This is gorgeous Jocelyn, I've played with the gelli plate now a couple of times but I'm really not that happy with the results. Looks like I need to play some more.
