Earlier in the year, I did some Gelli Printing. Today I am showing what I have done with one of the sheets.
This is the one I have been working on:
I struggled with this, not knowing what to do with it. So I decided to cut it in half, and trim each one to make each piece 6"x8" as so:
I played around with one of the pieces (the right one) for a while and came to this:
It was sitting on my desk for ages (another reason I wasn't doing any paper scrapbooking), waiting for some form of inspiration. Well, it wasn't coming, so I decided to put it away and try something digital with it. This is the result:
Eventually I decided to work on the other half. I used a mix of some scraps of paper I had left over from scrapbooking, as well as some acrylic paint and Posca pens. I quite like how this turned out:
A lot of dots - I have been watching some Aboriginal artists paint on YouTube, so perhaps I have been influenced by their work with regard to the many dots and strokes. In any case, it was very meditative, and think I shall try something like this again with another of my gelli backgrounds.
Thank you for coming by. I appreciate any comments you care to leave.
Hope you have a happy weekend!
