Gelli-Arts Class Stencils and Stamps

I taught the second in a series of three sessions in Playing with the Gelli Arts Printing plate. Just as it was in the first session, it was a great time!! A wonderful group of ladies joined me for a fun morning of mono-printing! I got to share my love of the printing plate, and they made some gorgeous backgrounds! In this class we used stencils and stamps. I brought along some of my favorite Easy Scraps stamps, and my stash of stencils I had designed. It was awesome to see what these creative woman did with them :)

One thing I do for stencils, is I make a lot of them just out of card stock. When they get covered in acrylic paint, they become sturdier, and actually hold up surprisingly well. Eventually, after I use the design a lot, I remake it using plastic.

I spaced and forgot to take pictures during the class, but managed to get a few at the end to share with you. I am going from memory here, which is not the strongest at my age, so hopefully I am not too far off on names, spellings, and credits &#59;). Take a peek at some of their creations…

Having a blast….

Take a closer look- there is additional texture in the chain link pattern in these backgrounds by Patty…

Here’s another one you need to look at more closely. The Celtic Knot prints by Mandy, on the far left and far right, were done later in the class and they picked up lots of residue. It was such a cool look- in person it had the illusion of an aged, rusted piece, even tho the colors were bright….

Gorgeous patterns by Cathy….

I loved this pattern made with the Wild Daisy stencil, so we zoomed in for a closer look…

I believe this print, using Wild Daisy also, was made by Margaret. It reminds me of the 4th of July…

Wild Daisy in progress. I think this might be by Cathy (number 2)?

This one was Judy’s favorite, made with Wild Daisy 2…

“Masking with stamps” example by Colleen. We loved the little bird….

Kim used my Bubble Wrap stencil (I just made this one out of card stock) on dictionary pages. Cool…

Stephanie’s pretty alphabet creations…

Joanne always uses the nicest, softest color palettes…

Thanks so much for joining me ladies!!!
