and bought a gelli plate! I've resisted until now 'cos I've always said that my favourite part of making anything has been creating the background, but anyhow I've been and got one. That's great but I haven't a flippin' clue what to do with it. Sooo I watched an Andy Skinner video and decided to have a play. On reflection this wasn't the best of ideas - the man is a genius and I've had my plate for a day...
All of the paints used are DecoArt. I will try others another time and compare drying times etc.
Definitely not as easy as he makes it look in the video...
Many sheets of card later this is what I have ended up with. I also have 2 new favourite paints, quin lilac and magenta.
It was ok but definitely something missing, so I decided to chop it up.
This piece has been stamped over with a Finnabair stamp.
And this has been stamped onto tissue paper and the stencilling put back.
I'm entering them into the Thats's Crafty alphabet soup challenge. I now need to watch lots of you-tube on gelli plates (but not tonight!)
Enjoy your bank holiday weekend, and thanks for looking x
