Using Up Some Gelli Plate Backgrounds!


Hi Everyone!  And welcome to my new followers this week!  Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your kind comments, they really do brighten my day!

Well I promised I would be back with a few projects using some of the backgrounds I created playing with my Gelli Plate the other day, so here are a couple for you.   Since playing with it the other day, I have rearranged my craft room and swapped desks to give me more space to get messy and I now have a new excuse as to why not to do my housework! lol......I am having too much fun with my Gelli Plate!


   

The above Gelli Plate Print was done using Splash Inks Brayered Across the Plate. Cut into ATC Size Pieces, a Unity Background Stamp, Gold Foil, Faux Stitching and some Torn Paper were then added to set the scene for the cute Fairy Cat and Butterfly.

I am entering this ATC into the Artful Times Challenge #23 this week which is to use a Color Technique.



My Life Book Week 2 Exercise was to create a True Intentions Art Doll on an acrylic paint background so I couldn't resist doing this exercise again and use this Gelli Plate Print for it.    My art doll is made up of lots of Unity KOTM Stamps and some Hand Drawing.




And my last project today is a ATC using a Gelli Print background created using a Mini Harlequin and Mini Circle Explosion Stencil on the Gelli Plate all in pink.  I have simply added some contrast with some black faux stitching, and the water-colored Tulip is a Dark Room Door Stamp to which I have added some shine by adding Glossy Accents to the flower bud.

Can't wait to play some more!

I hope you find some time just to play today or at least do something you love!
