I have been playing around with Gelli Plate printing this past week. My first attempts were not good. I still haven't decided if I had the paint on too thick or wasn't letting the paint dry completely before I tried to print. It was probably a little of both. These were my first "successful" pulls. I think they will be fine for background pages, pockets, or bases for journaling cards. I got some new acrylic paints today and they will really open up my color options. I think I will try again tomorrow to see if I can improve on my prints. I need to start a new journal sometime this week so I can use some of the papers I have created recently.
Waiting to here back about a couple of festival applications before we post the schedule for the year. Two of the applications should be good as I will be a returning vendor but want to be sure we post the schedule.
While playing with colors this past week I also pulled out all of my Distress Inks, Distress Oxide Inks and Spray. I think my new favorite colors of these are Iced Spruce and Aged Mahogany. They work together really well and also work alone. What colors do you find yourself reaching for over and over? Any new favorites?
