So many of us have found the gelli plate printing so interesting and would love to try it, but sometimes.....life gets in the way of us spending the extra money for "just fun" things. The company my husband works for decided to save money on insurance and make higher deductibles, dr visit fees, etc. so after 3 surgeries since last August and another coming up.........I can't justify the extra money for too many of those things right now. I know Von is just one who would like a gelli plate....but is patiently waiting. :-) Well, I saw something online that gave me the idea to try this and since it worked....I thought I'd share it for Von and anyone else who would be interested.
After trying it with one sheet of craft foam/fun foam I realized that it really needed to be 2 thick or buy the thicker foam. Since I already had the thin I glued 2 together.
I used one of the plastic sheets you use for your oven on top, put 3 different colors of paint on, used my brayer and.......it worked. :-)
I should have used more paint but I actually like the way it came out. This was the first page.
This page was after I sprayed on some water and used what was left. I'm anxious to try this with stencils, masks, and whatever else I can think of.
By the way.....I met Von through Tracy Weinzapfel Burgos and we have so much fun on our Mixed Media Monday Nights at 6pm PST. We'd love for you to join us. :-)
