After seeing a ton of videos, art journaling pages, and tags made with the Gelli Plate I decided I had to give this fun new product a try. I just received my Gelli Plate over the weekend and decided to jump right on in a create an art journal page.
I am not going to show all of the steps on how I created this using the Gelli Plate, but if you have not seen this in action you can search You Tube or go directly to Gelli Arts. For the background I used a dark and light green paint on my gelli plate and then stamped into that with a Dylusions leaf stamp. I am submitting this to Simon Says Stamp Challenge a bit of Green. Next I used coral and a light yellow paint with a new stencil called Scallop Flowers by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.
To finish off the edges I went around the page with some Gelatos and blended them in with water.
Next I added the tree, which I just hand cut out. The deer was cut out of the Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight Die. I used white acrylic paint to add a few accents to the deer.
I stamped the leaves and bushes, another Dylusions stamp, onto blue cardstock using Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I thought the bushes needed a bit of pop so used coral paint to add some more interest.
The challenge over at the Frilly and Funky blog is William Morris. I was attempting to keep the page muted in color with not too many chunky embellishments. This was difficult for me as I tend to keep adding layers. I think I was able to accomplish this and in the end I was pretty happy at my first attempt with the Gelli Plate. As always, I appreciate you stopping by.
