More gelli plate printing art journal page

Hello my lovelies,

And how is everyone tonight? Hope you are all well, crafting happily!:)

I would like to share with you an art journal page I just finished today and I am very pleased  with how it turned out. I will also share with you the story of how this page was created.

So here we go . Enjoy!

IMG_3609Did I tell you lately how much I love printing on my gelli plate? LOL

Well, here I was last night, tired and with my back aching yet again, but could I stand still?? NO! So I pulled my gelli plate and some paints and in no time I had prints flying everywhere and a big, broad smile on my face! 🙂 If you are looking for some instant gratification this is perfect for you! This is such a free, spontaneous, quick and rewarding way of creating! In a couple of hours you’ll have a pile of wonderful prints that you’ll be able to use in all your artwork.

I didn’t plan at all this journal page, but because I had printed also some interfacing and I was very curious how it will look if I iron it on some paper, I grabbed my Moleskine journal and stuck it on one of the pages. It looked great! So, I left all the papers dry overnight and this morning I started to work on my page.

I began by cutting and tearing  some of the deli papers I printed and then I started collaging  them into my journal using soft gel medium. I ironed on more interfacing, here and there, until I was pleased with the result. I even collaged some of my handmade masks so beautifully painted in the gelli printing process (they were made out of some watercolour paper scraps).

I added some red and gold accents, scraping the paint using an old credit card trying to unify the page. When this was dry I made some marks with red and white paint, doodled a bit with a white fine point Sharpie pen and a black fine Pitt pen and made some splatters with diluted white gesso. Stamped the quote using a Donna Downey stamp and here it is!

Thank you so much for stopping by and don’t forget to check out my new Online Workshop, you can watch a video trailer HERE.

Have a fun and creative evening,

Much love,
