Experimenting with a Gelli Plate!
Saw a tutorial on Pinterst, and an article in Art Journaling magazine on using a Gelli Plate to do monoprinting as backgrounds in art journals. Had to find one! Thought I was going to have to order one until I came across a new shop! I stumbled upon Donna Downey Studio in Huntersville, NC. Oh, I can't believe this place has been in my own back yard and I am just now discovering this fantastic shop!
Go Get a Gelli Plate! I had hours of fun playing with this product! I have several new journal pages out of the experimenting.
I used cheap craft paints, rubber stamps, and stencils to get the layered effects in these pages.
I have also been trying out the washi tapes lately. They are way to easy for adding a bit of pattern really quickly.
Donna's shop is a store, gallery, and classroom! Well worth a stop if you live in the Charlotte or surrounding areas in NC!
