Stencil crazy...

...Gelli crazy.

I've had fun these last couple of days, burning a new house-wrap stencil from a stencil-making disaster a couple of weeks ago (no, don't ask!),

and then doing a test run on the Gelli plate for some monoprint backgrounds.

From the initial ghost print,

to each of the layered prints, whether first pass or not,

 I was excited about the results.  As always, I love the texture created by the house wrap itself,

and the first print over another textured Gelli print has great possibilities (think giraffe!),

as does the ghost print over another Gelli-printed book sheet.  I'm not usually fond of subdued colour, but this one pleased me no end.

Even this high contrast print looks awesome after scratching back into the black areas (love those Golden open acrylics for Gelli printing)

 and the ghost print over a soft pink/green print is truly delicious.

I am well and truly hooked on the Gelli printing process, and looking forward to a fall and winter playing with it in Creston, Cranbrook, Fernie,  and Kimberley.  You can see a full list of these and other playshops here.

With applications from original monoprints to journaling to collage and more, the possibilities are endless.  Will you come and play?
