So I scored a Gelli Arts Gelli Plate and some awesome Speedball paints when I was invited to be a guest this month at Berry71Bleu, sister site to Zeus and Zoe. This month's theme is fall.
I love how I got my background design on the canvas panel in just one print. And then I went crazy with chipboard, mesh tape, some mediums and lots of embellishments! *winks*
For those of you who are curious about what a Gelli Plate is and does...
1. It is a tool made from gelatin that lets you make monoprints.
2. It's soft and flexible and you spread paint over it with a brayer.
3. The fun part is when you layer stencils over it and create unique designs that you can "print" on a variety of surfaces - paper, fabric, canvas etc.
4. You can also use your stamps on it so the possibilities for unique designs are endless.
