A couple days ago I declared the 26th of June to be a National Day of Art Making. I had spent ten hours editing photos the day prior and had a massive migraine when I called it a night. I figured I had earned a day of play – so I told my FB group Tangle All Around I had declared it to be so. I had a lot of people participating. Hahaha! It was epic! Let me show you just one of the things I worked on that day.
Can you just say beautiful? Well, I will! These are beautiful! I have never had gelli plate prints turn out like these before. And actually I made a project before this that led to these prints and it was then that I figured out the process and I love it! How is that for a run-on sentence?
Hahaha! I took about 20 photos of the set of twelve pages – not even kidding – and no, I won’t make you look at all of them. Just a few.
Because they are that wonderful. These are darker than I normally like to work with but the colors are just so yummy – I will make myself work with them anyway. Hahahahaha!
Ok, that’s it. Tomorrow I will walk you through step by step how I made these. I will show you a project that isn’t quite finished – I hope to finish it this afternoon. It was while making the basics of that project that I figured out how to do these. Then I was off to the races! So to speak! Now, I just have to show you these twelve one by one. The papers are 5″ x 7″ and I used a gelli plate of the same size. Sorry about a few of those little white edges. Can’t wait to play with these!
Come back tomorrow. I will walk you through all the product used – basically just three things – and I will teach you how to make these beautiful marbled gelli prints. Easy peasy! I typically use this size for cutting ATCs but I may need to do something totally different with this batch!
