If I could have a few wishes at my disposal, one of them would be to have a room stocked with all the amazing art and crafting supplies I could ever need. But since that isn’t possible at the moment, the Amazon Wish List option has to be it.
Lucky for me, my hubby and my son know about that list so one of my early birthday presents was the much coveted Gel Printing Plate by Gelli Arts. Other than allowing me to play with paint and paper, it must be one of the easiest things to clean. The website has lots of video tutorials to get you started. My plate’s been on my work table since it came and no matter how many times I’ve cleaned and put it away, I find myself reaching for it again and again.
Today I decided to try making a collage piece using pages of tracing paper that I used for blotting excess paint. I also made random prints just because it’s fun to roll out paint with a brayer. This is what I have so far. It’s largely unfinished. I have an image running around in my head that’s not made itself clear just yet. It’s just nice to see the beginning of something specially when it winds up looking really different in the end.
