I luuuuuve this batch. Love the colors, love the shapes. Love. Love. Love.
I'm finally getting a grip on how to put down the layers so that the end result is what I had in mind. These are all done on cereal boxes roughly cut to the size of the plate, 8x10".
Started with at least two layers of a bright but fairly dark blue done without much in mind except getting some color on the cardboard. Began adding turquoise to the blue for the next few layers and doing some sort of texture, either bubble wrap, a stencil, that marker holder thing that makes dots - anything to get something other than a smooth sheet of color.
I did about 12 of these in rotation, pulling one and setting it aside to dry, doing the one next to it, etc, until everything was well covered with 6-8 layers of blue/turquoise. Then I let them dry while I went off and did something else that I can't remember now (this was a few weeks ago) and when I came back, it was time for the oranges and rusts!
These I did thru stencils or by laying down color on the plate, pulling some back off with bubble wrap, pressing the bubble wrap to a cardboard, then putting another cardboard onto the plate. There are so many ways to use color and implements with the gelli plate - I'm still figuring out new ways to do things.
Anyway, this batch came out just like I'd hoped because after Rhonda was here on Easter Sunday, I had gelli print envy something fierce and had to make some of my own like hers that I so admired. Job accomplished! Then I scanned them for posterity and cut them in half for postcards.
Scanned at 300dpi, use them however you like, just don't sell them.
Linking up to Mandarin Orange Monday.
