Hands and Heart: Gelli plate printing with Monica Zuniga! I used my own work printed on a copy paper as a collage piece, I have painted so many faces that I think is a good idea to use them all over agin in my art journals!
Cath Sheard - Artist today I started on the thanks for being amazing cards. I used my Gelli plate, some old doilies we found, a Tracy Bautista stencil from Stencil Girl and my trusty Golden Fluid acrylics. Once I had done all my cards I covered the Gelli plate with medium yellow and let it dry, to pick up all the lovely leftovers off the plate – that’s the first photo.
Art...: Gelli Plate printing - My next step was to use my Gelli Plate in making prints and ghost prints from this stencil. After two of those ghost-prints dried, I cut out greeting-card size sections and glued them (TowBow gluestick) to the blank card covers. Then I glued on the individually cut-out vines.
