It's the final day of Birgit Koopsen's Gelli Print Challenge sadly. It's been such a fun month, trying out different mediums and techniques on my Gelli Plate. Here are the final two prompts.
Day 30 - Water Soluble Crayons - this took a bit of practise, and experimentation, and inspiration from other people. Laying down a stencil, scribbling with Gelatos through, then blending with my fingers, then applying white acrylic and taking a print worked well.
Some ghost prints...
Dry drawing on the plate with Gelatos and using white acrylic to take a print, not such good results. Water is definitely needed to activate the colours better.
Then I spotted Sarah Anderson's idea of applying black paint, laying a stencil on it, taking a print to remove the black design, then using a wet crayon to colour in the stencil spaces. I used Scribble Sticks, and I love the stained glass effect.
And I also spritzed water onto the Gelli Plate, and drew a design with Gelatos, following a tip from Ruth Mescall.
Day 31 - Primary Colours - Not colours I would normally choose, but I loved the effects of the colours overlapping.
And finally, I created a page in my art journal, using one of my Gelli Plate prints. I'm entering it for the last day of Rosie's 'Spring' challenge at Art Journal Journey.
Have a lovely weekend,
I'll see you tomorrow with my Easter makes,
