Gelli Arts Print- over printing black and white

I finally had a little while to play today. I was trying out some ideas with the Gelli Arts Printing Plate and some of my new stencils, for a collaborative project that I will be part of this coming fall. At the end of the session I decided to play around with a wooden stamp…

Gelli Arts Hand-y work

I know folks have used their Gelli Arts printing plate to print on a LOT of things, but after my last play session, I happened to glance down at my gloves. They were so cool looking! Here is what it looked like… I decided to bring it into Photoshop and play around with it, until…

Gelli Arts Print on Black

Have you tried pulling a Gelli Arts print on black paper yet? I played around with it a bit, and really liked the effects I got. In this case, I used gesso (because I was too lazy to go find my white paint), and a squirt of Adirondack Dye re-inker, along with some smidges of Golden…
