I love my gelli-plate....so much! Just had to say......
So, after spending a happy hour creating lots more pages of gelli prints, I had a quiet word with myself. Whilst I do love creating and then, sitting and admiring all the prints and then usually using a fair few of them. I did think, what I really need to do is have a gelliprint background in my journal. Wouldn't that be so nice, to turn over a new page in my dylusions journal and find some colour already there, instead of a blank page!
Well, that got me thinking...I found some good quality thick paper, torn out from my daughter's unfinished art book from last year (oops, naughty mummy, well at least I'm saving those blank pages!) - I thought, what if I make my own journal, with a few pages dedicated for arty stuff each month - not too onerous, plus I can pre gelli print them (love that) and then sometimes take inspiration from some challenge themes. It's enough to keep me busy but not too much!
I will have the year to find out how to bind them - now that will be challenge!
Anyway, this is a page out of my new journal - love that it is still only a piece of paper, it's so much easier working on one sheet of paper instead of in a book I find!
So this is tying in a gold and silver theme they have going on over at the That's Crafty blog, plus it's still only January and 'the possibilities' of creating anything this year 'are endless'!!
I doodled the quote and painted inside the letters with my gold Dina Wakley Media paint, love this! Plus I love the January stencil with silver paint dabbed onto a black background turned out.
