It was just going to be a few prints. That’s what I told myself. And then it happened. I couldn’t stop. I didn’t want to stop! All I had planned to do was get things packed for my upcoming workshop, Gelli® Printing Easy as 1-2-3 in Mason, Ohio. Just thinking about the 3 steps to making amazing prints we’re going to be doing on Sept. 12th was too tempting for me…I had to play with the rainbow!
Sometimes I get a little over excited about color and flood the plate with an abundance of paint. So much that my brayer was super juicy! A mistake? Absolutely not! It’s a OOPS and I loved the look of the prints so much I did it again and again!
Even with all this paint, I didn’t make mud. If you’d like to see how, I’ve got a video about mixing colors on the Gelli Plate® here along with other helpful info about getting started with Gelli printing®.
The rainbow brings me happiness so I made rainbow prints…a lot of prints! What stencil did I use? It’s my Wonky Eyes stencil I designed for StencilGirl. What am I going to do with all these prints? Well, I was supposed to be getting things ready for my upcoming workshop so I think I’ll use them to create a little something for each student.
In the greater Cincinnati area and want to explore fun ways to play with the Gelli® Plate? Join me at the Arts Alliance on September 12th. Just a few spots left. Hope to see you there!
