Venice pages

Did I tell you that Gelli Plate printing is addictive?  These are more of my gelli prints.

I scanned some of the prints into my computer so that I could print them out in different sizes.

These were the pages I showed you last week where I had blotted the stencil into my sketchbook.

This week I layered bits of gelli prints - some done on paper and some on deli paper and part of a photograph.

I started on a new double page spread making a collage of some of my gelli prints and the smaller prints from my computer.  THe black pattern on the left looks as though I printed directly onto the gelli print but I actually did it onto repair tissue and glued it down with Soft Gel Medium.

As I was working on these pages I was totally distracted by an article by Michelle Ward in the latest Stampington Somerset Studio magazine.  She showed previews of it on her blog post - Cut it out.

Of course I had to have a go.  My next Venice post will show my attempt.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Your book is coming along beautifully, I am enjoying seeing the different staged. Thank you for the link to Michelle's blog, I can see why you were distracted and now I have to go and buy a copy of the magazine for her article!

  2. I love what you are doing with those stencils and the Gelli plate! I checked out Michelle's preview for the magazine article and that is right up your alley!

  3. Lovely backgrounds. It was clever of you to photo and scan them for future use. hugs, Teresa

  4. Your gelli prins are so inspired! Thank for shaping!
