Gelli Printing - Background Uses

Hello everyone!

A few weeks ago, I did my first Gelli Printing pages. I had 8 sheets in total, so am now using them for backgrounds. Today I'm sharing 2 more pages that I have worked on.

This is the first one:

This is what I came up with:

I used a side profile stencil from Jane Davenport and one of her eye stencils found HERE. I'm not very practiced at doing faces, or eyes, but find the stencils really useful as a starting point.
Also, I had done some writing (same words) but really didn't like how I had written it, so fixed it in Photoshop and re-wrote it. Writing in style is an art form all in itself which I never realised until doing this page.
I have also added some stitching and felt to my page.

My next one is from this basis:

I decided to do a digital page for this one, late one night:

 I really didn't like my white triangles along the top, but it was a great design start-off point. Most of the digital elements are from Fiddlette Designs and Tangie Baxter.
