Gelli prints

These are my first experiments on paper using the Gelli plate.
The next two are my favourite prints.
I guess you can see that I'm into trees and cherry blossoms at the moment.
I find that the most difficult part is not to forget taking notes about which paint and medium I'm using. It's especially true when I get a nice texture effect I'd like to be able to reproduce.

The sakura quilt is still on my mind, but I got a bit carried away with all this monotype thing.
Next is a picture of the first Gelli prints I did on fabric.
I did many more prints on fabric using different kinds of acrylic and fabric paints. I'll try and take pictures tomorrow.

I love the effects you're getting with these gelli prints, they look so beautifully calming and subtle.

Your prints are beautiful - so much "Françoise"!

You make me want to start "gelliprinting" immediately! Guess I have to order a plate. I know how to make them myself, but it's so much easier to have a plate ready whenever you want to print.
