Gelli on a plate

:)  no not the skipping song we used to sing as kids . . .  am I showing my age????

I've bought myself a gelli plate and have spent the afternoon playing with it only having to stop and tidy up just before dinner tonight.  Why oh why do we need to eat dinner when I want to play?  I tidied away and thought I would show you what I came up with.

I've cut the prints down to the size of my gelli plate 6 x 6 - I only bought the small one (that was pricey enough at £19.99) and used a variety of acrylic paints and things laying around the house to make patterns.  I printed onto copying paper as I didn't have any white cardstock spare, hence why some of the prints look crumpled.

 I've also included some close ups of some of my favourite patterns and colourways.  I like the fact that you never really know how the prints will turn out.

Thanks for stopping by and do leave a comment if you are able.
