Fall canvas using a Gelli Plate and Speedball Paints


Fall canvas

So I scored a Gelli Arts Gelli Plate and some awesome Speedball paints when I was invited to be a guest this month at Berry71Bleu, sister site to Zeus and Zoe. This month's theme is fall.


I love how I got my background design on the canvas panel in just one print. And then I went crazy with chipboard, mesh tape, some mediums and lots of embellishments! *winks*


For those of you who are curious about what a Gelli Plate is and does...
1. It is a tool made from gelatin that lets you make monoprints.
2. It's soft and flexible and you spread paint over it with a brayer.
3. The fun part is when you layer stencils over it and create unique designs that you can "print" on a variety of surfaces - paper, fabric, canvas etc.
4. You can also use your stamps on it so the possibilities for unique designs are endless.

Check out this video by Melissa for Donna Downey where she shares gelli plate printing on washi tapes and glassine bags. [Please click the link to get to the original post if the video doesn't play for you.]



P/s: Happy weekend friends! :)
