Gelli Printed Packaging and A Springtime Page

Hi Everyone!

The day started quite dry and mild as I walked down to my pub crochet group this morning, and fortunately I was home before the rain came. 

I got the paints and my Gelli Plate out to create some prints on packaging for Birgit's Day 9 challenge.

I thought I cheer my afternoon up with some Springtime art journaling for Rosie's challenge at Art Journal Journey

I used bubblewrap to print with green paint, an old store card to scrape on some blue, corrugated card to print the orange paint lines, a cork to print the orange circles, then finished with a few marks, and a bird rub-on.

Happy Friday!

  2. You are certainly taking this challenge to heart, Alison. I simply adore the use of objects from around the house and packaging products that you used to create this beautiful spring inspired entry for Art Journal Journey today. It was a real treat to see both the gelli prints and your lovely journal page you shared with us at Art Journal Journey. Thank you, dear.
