Ever have a Gelli print® that leaves you feeling blah? The kind that are fine or okay…that is such a so-so place to be. I don’t like so-so. So what do I do?
I say O.O.P.S. This Outstanding Opportunity Presenting Suddenly was loaded with opportunity. If I didn’t care about it, I was free to just play with absolutely no worries about ruining it. After adding layers of painty pattern with my new Layer Me stencils, I fell in love with that paper!

This is the blah Gelli print® where I started. It isn’t much now, but it turned out to be the best background for me to add layers of pattern.
When stenciling, I often get messy. I use lots of paint just so it runs under parts of the stencil. I like that look, especially when building up layers.
I took various Posca pens to the page and began coloring in some shapes, tracing others, and followed my impulses to embellish where ever it struck my fancy.This is how an impatient person like me doodles.
The end result? A big smile on my face and a very busy, patterned paper. I can’t wait to cut it up or rip up into pieces for a page in my art journal!
