It’s day 6 of the party and I am not cleaning for it! I don’t like to clean. I really don’t like to clean. Just ask my long suffering teens who have to do dishes and sweep and do laundry! So I find it joyful when I don’t need to clean my Gelli Plate! For those of you who like to clean the dried acrylic paint comes right off with water.
I built up the layers of paint by printing but not pulling up all the ghost prints that I could have. That leaves traces of paint each time. By the time of the video I had approximately 10ish layers of paint on there but it is not like there is a law about how many layers to use. You can use whatever makes you happy – and isn’t the point of arting?
I wish I could tell you that I planned all these layers carefully and knew exactly what was going to show up on each print but I can’t. It is random and exciting. The more layers of paint the more depth to the grunge that gets pulled up onto the paper.
So now it is your turn to share any of your Gelli creations from prints to finished projects!
- Link up your Gelli Plate blog posts, flickr page, YouTube videos – it is all welcome! New posts or recent posts are welcome!
- Add a link back to the party so others can join us too!
- Leave a comment on at least 2 other links from the party. You know how wonderful kind comments encourage us creative types!
- Participate as many times as you want- just be sure it relates to the Gelli Plate. If you notice your link deleted it is because it didn’t have a thing to do with the Gelli plate and that is what we’re celebrating here!
Loved the way you did the grunge look — I am trying it this morning!
That is some gorgeous grunge, girl! Love all the built-up layers.
AWESOME!!!!!!! Love the grunge!!! These are going to make fabulous backgrounds or pieces of collage!
I am jealous looking at all those lovely layers! Have fun! Valerie
PS. it HAS to be red paint on the floor, that’s a law!
These are incredible!! I may have to curb my cleaning …..
OOOO…what fun!! I’ve left a couple layers to pull up but see that I need to just leave the layers build even more. LOVE the grungyness that you got!
Awesome!! I don’t like cleaning either so this is a great idea.
fabulous Carolyn!!! I have always cleaned up my plate before- well, not anymore!! Love the “grungy” surprises!!
I love how it is a surprise when the paint layers take in unexpected ways, nice views here that’s for sure. xox
Especially love that first one. It reminds me of lichen.
Very cool Carolyn! Never ending fun on these gelli plates. Check out my video about how I clean off my plates and pick up all that crusty goodness…
1st attempt at video – Gelli Plate Love
Well, now, that’s how that done. I was wondering. I had heard about it. That first lift was my favorite. I tried to put my link it, but it would take. Still has my first post. Sigh.
Nevermind, it worked.
Love your ideas!
Stunningly grungy! Love it!!
Thanks a very lot for this gorgeous party, all your tutorials and the inspirations. Great job!
