It has been an age since I’ve used my gelli plate with paint and so when this was announced as the next Paperartsy challenge I knew I had to get back into practice. I had a few duff attempts on pieces of scrap and a few good prints that will work for another project and one which was a very clean simple print using a Clarity framer stencil so decided to make a card from this.
Piece of 5×5 mixed media cardstock and although there are some vague patterns in the paint it is pretty much just the stencil that I printed. I then masked off the centre of the square with a postit note and added some ink in Cracked Pistachio and Spiced Marmalade. Then masked off the area where it wasn’t white and stamped the Clarity girl (Annabel). I masked her off too (I have the coordinating mask so that makes it easy), added a moon mask and then brushed in a background using ink left on the stencil brushes.
I coloured Annabel in with the Spectrum noir pencils and added the doodled line to create the frame and some shading to give it some depth.
Mounted the print onto a kraft card blank to finish it off.
A lovely little arty print and loved my gelli print play!
Entering this into the Paperartsy blog challenge and inspired by Barbara Gray as referenced in the original blog post. I love her art work using the gelli plate and must now rewatch all her youtube videos. I did use the torn paper trick on another print… wonder if I will get round to blogging that soon. I am also entering this into the Claritystamps challenge too where there is an Anything Goes challenge.
