gelli plate

Jam Up and Gelli Tight

How long has it been since you fell in love? 

I am up to my paint-crusted elbows in love with my Gelli plate. 

Last week I spent vacation time on the lake with my other love, Mister Man, who managed to read books, take naps, and eat delicious food while I compulsively rolled paint onto the plate before I fell face forward from exhaustion.  Thank goodness for that brayer that developed a squeak after about the second swipe.  It is all that kept me awake.

"This is my last print," I must have announced at least a thousand times.   That's what happens when you are in love.  You just can't get enough.

Now that we are back home and reality has set in, I am not making gelli prints like the obsessed fool that I was.  I am now trying to figure out what the heck I am going to do with this goregeous stack of paper.

This one I did a mixed media piece on canvas but naturally I forgot to photograph it before I started.  I cut the bird out of a index card that I printed and used some rub ons to complete the painting.

Well, there you are until next week when we find out if the spark still holds!  And I come up with some more finished products.
