I tell you - four days demonstrating a gelli plate produces ALOT of prints! I decided only to photograph the ones I had dyed over - but I've still got shed loads. So I'm going to split this post in two - just the first 50 today
So here we are - gelli prints from Festival of Quilts .. such a wonderful tool and you can do amazing things with it. These are a selection of leaf prints and backgrounds to go with them - the first half on paper (a mix of khadi, deli and cartridge papers) and the next lot on fabric .. I like to print on a variety of surfaces as it gives me a more varied palette of materials to work with. Materials form demos are always particularly interesting as I try to use lots of different colours to show people how they work together and as resist. So a bright bunch ....hope you enjoy them
alright - not leaves ... heart stamps - they just sneaked in early ..
oh - another couple of hearts .. pretty though ..
we are switching to fabric now ... both plain cheap cotton and cotton lawn
anyone spot the crab??
Phew ... such piles of yumminess. The next lot will be textures on the gelli plate - like this one below, and some stamps too - see you very soon xx
