Do you remember a post called ‘Architextures meet Gelli Plate‘ from a couple of weeks ago when Rosemary Morris showed us how she used some of the Architextures elements with her Gelli Plate and the amazing prints she created? The prints were so colourful and unusual in their design but after all the fun, Rosemary was faced a question – What now? Today, she’s sharing two projects she has come up with in order to use the pages and pages of prints she created.
Mixed media tags
‘After hours of fun playing with my Gelli Plate, I was left with a question – What to do with all those prints? The first thing I did was make some mixed media tags. I love working with recycled items, so I made these tags with some of my trash treasures and the Gelli prints. The ephemera is 7 Gypsies paper.’ – says Rosemary.
Materials used for tags:
7 Gypsies Ordre Du Jour: 12×12 Go & Be Paper
Old File Folders
strips of various fabric and cheese cloth
stamped out sentiments
Rosemary’s second project was a colourful canvas
‘Well, I love the work by Artist Sandrine Pelissier. She does this technique with inks and alcohol but I decide to make a collage with some of my prints and try her technique on that. I really like how it came out, especially since this was my first attempt.’ – explains Rosemary.
For the canvas Rosemary used:
Gelli prints made with Architextures
DecoArt acrylic paints
We love this colourful collage Rosemary created! Have you tried gelli printing with any of our products? If so – we’d love to see your projects; you can share them in the Canvas Corp Brands Collective on Facebook.
Have a great crafty day!!!
