It’s day 4 of the party! So glad you are here! I’ve been asked what kind of paper I use and it is whatever I have. In these videos it has been cheap cards stock from the office supply store. I will use old book pages,scrapbook paper, deli paper, really anything! The paints I use are Amsterdam – they are affordable, come in colors in I like, and stay wet for me on the Gelli Plate better than several other brands I tried.
In the video I create 3 canvases at once. I use more paint on the Gelli Plate when I am using canvas or fabrics compared to paper. Here is how each canvas progressed. I am putting all 3 of them on the blog as proof that is doesn’t always go the way I’d like. There is one I am very happy with, one that is okay, and one that needs a lot more layers for me to like it at all (but I am not tell which is which)!
Here’s the middle canvas in progress. I collaged on various Gelli print papers and added paint. I have a couple of ideas for this but we’ll see which one my muse likes the best…
Have you had a chance to check out all the great Gelli-ness that has linked up? I am blown away by all the creativity! There is still time for you to link up your prints and join the party!
