Gelli Printed Mini Journal
A number of years ago I purchased these small accordion folded cards from a couple from Spokane Washington who came to the school to do a one week mask making program and have been saving them for just the right project. I can't remember their names but will find the information and post it. I wondered how they would work for Gell Printing. I used the same paint colors which were used in the previous posts and printed this as I was using up the extra paint which was left on the Gelli Plate. I decided that I didn't want it to be completely printed instead just wanted splots, how about that for new art vocabulary, of random color applied to this piece. I found that I really liked it and added some stamping and some doodling to finish it off.
The next step is to add words to the piece which I am working on in my spare time. I'm adding the words to deli paper and then will adhere with Decou-Page. What a marvelously easy process to add text to a project.
These accordion folded cards are cut out of a metallic shimmery paper, this one is a blue grey color and is beautiful to start with but with the addition of the Gell Printing I think it is really stunning. Once I get the words finished up and attached, I will post the finished piece. I love how the center section pops out.
Let me know what you think!!!
