Ugly Scrapbook papers? 6/9/2015 10 Comments Everytime I buy a large pad of scrapbook papers, there are always a few papers that just don't appeal to me. Perhaps, just ugly! This week I decided to use my Gelli Arts® plate to change them up into something I would use or small abstract art pieces. Most of the papers I pulled out of my stash were 6" x 6" and chose the prints or patterns that didn't appeal to me.
Watch Your Back! http://gelliarts.blogspot.com/2012/05/watch-your-back.html. In our last blog post we talked about using different media to add color to Gelli prints that aren't quite "there yet". What wasn't mentioned is that there's "another side" to the story. Literally! In this technique, where the print surface was saturated with dye, the color seeped right through the paper to the back. And the acrylic paint from the original Gelli print created a resist! Talk about a cool effect!!!
I ordered a Gelli plate recently and I’ve been experimenting with it. As you can tell by the little hill shapes, I took Carla Sonheim’s online class for inspiration. I highly recommend it – the videos are high-quality and she makes everything easy and fun. - See more at: http://kelly-kautz.com/fun-with-gelli-prints/#sthash.Kx0IFahg.Ksg8slZV.dpuf -- Fun with Gelli Prints, Kelly Kautz
