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.
