It's been a Gelli weekend

It certainly has and it started on Friday with a few hours playing...oh sorry, preparing for Saturdays workshop at C.J.Cardcrafts in Edgeley, Stockport.
I used one of the fantastic new Clarity Stencils.....well I do love Poppies....


I started by loading my Gelli plate with a pale colour of Adirondack ink using my Brayer. I then used scrumpled paper and took a print. Added two contrasting inks and one of the outer square stencils....rubbed with copier paper, took the stencil away and took another print....this is a really good way to build up layers on a background.
When I was happy with my background, I placed my poppy stencil onto the Gelli plate and began to dab Adirondack ink through the stencil using a makeup sponge....


I removed the stencil and took my final print....I was really happy with the result, so I made it into a card.....I do hope that you like it too.


Here are some other examples using the Gelli plate, inks and Clarity Stencils...


And..


On to the workshop projects....we had some warm up exercises using copier paper...I really do recommende this...and once you start, honestly you won't want to stop...


We used the Clarity Treescape stencil and the stamps are from the remountable hares set....


Then onto a more arty approach to the Gelli plate (just for you Sam).
I do hope you like these projects, the crafters all took to the Gelli like ducks to water...(and believe me we have a lot of water about at the mo...) 
Thank you for looking in today...enjoy your Sunday evening especially you Linda Page!!!! I know what you will be doing at 9pm.......Enjoy...
Hugs from me....xxx
