I bought myself a new toy a few weeks back. So far I haven't had much time to play with it. Either I don't have the time, or the energy or when I do have time Mr Gibbs is demanding attention.
A few days ago when I showed you the ATC's I made I said I would show what I used to make the backgrounds. The top left corner is the picture of the 3 ATC backgrounds and the big picture is my new gel printing plate from Gelli Arts. You roll the paint on to the gel plate and then you can use stencils, or assorted textures pieces to create one of a kind prints. I'm not very good at explaining how to use it but I can tell you that after seeing several videos on this I was fascinated and wanted to try it out.
My first attempt didn't work the way I thought it was supposed to and I thought that maybe it was going to require some practice Then I realized that I had forgotten to peel off the plastic protective sheet before I rolled on the paint.. OOPS!
Oh well, I now have a very pretty plastic sheet to lay back on my gel plate when I'm not using it.
Here were a couple tests I did. I used a flower stencil. I rolled the paint on and then the stencil was laid on top of the paint. I made my print and then removed the stencil and made one more print.
Hopefully one of these days real soon I'll have all the planets aligned right and I'll get to spend lots of time playing.
