After so much precise vector work the past weeks I did some relaxation with my gelli plate last night.
First I prepared some embossed papers and die cuts I wanted to use. Of course I could not control myself again when Sizzix UK had their big sale lately, so I got a big box with new embossing folders and decorative strips dies. I was instantly in love with the Tim Holtz dies.
On the top print I used them as stencils, but they kept sticking on the print after removing the page from the gelli plate giving a lovely effect just like the flower masks from film, which are covered with acrylic paint and sticking between the stencils and the page. So this has become a mixed media page without intention.
I tried adding golden modeling paste, which looks much more beautiful on the original print than on the scans.
The black and white is just decorative and maybe I will go on working on it.
For the purple print I used some dots from the trash from mirror cardboard and wow, they also been sticking and still shiny after removing, so I just let them stay and shimmer.
And the bottom print will be a wonderful background paper whenever I need a walltexture. I never expected it to come out so cool. The first print did not look very spectacular, but this is the second print with removed stencils. What a surprise.
Altogether a successful gelli session and so much fun!
