Using up Gelliplate prints

 So I saw a video on pinterest on making ATC's from gelliplate prints. It looked fun , so I thought I'd have a go . 

 Basically you just draw  cut out or tear out a few circles of paper and randomly stick them to the print. Then you draw flowers around them using acrylic paints - well anything really , although acrylic paint is better and more dense over the acrylic print. 

once the paint is dry, go in with finer detail - using more paint, pens, inks , whatever. I have also used liquid pearls and glitter glue to accent the flowers. Next the scary bit ...cutting it up!!

 ooo they are not too bad.

 I quite like them.

 They are definately different from my "norm"

 Think I can call myself a "mixed media artist" yet ? Ha Ha

I need to find a swap now.

 I will do this again I think.

 And I did .. might put a coating on them to seal them though .

  2. Your ATC look absolutely gorgeous Sue. Your flowers look great. There's no stopping you now! That technique looks great fun to do. Thanks for sharing it. Are you going to make some cards using this technique too.

  3. Sue, you are sooo a mixed media artist! Fab creations!

  5. What a cool idea, Sue. I really ned to get my act together and make a gelli plate. I've got all the ingredients ready, just haven't actually got around to making it. Perhaps if I get a brayer first I'll tell myself it's useless without the plate lol. x
