More Gelli Plate action

Started with a base colour that I printed onto my paper and then tried adding two colours onto the gelli plate together and rolled around, some hand drawing and printed, liked the effect and decided to add some fish and a starburst using stencils to create an ocean scene, finished off with some off my fave stampotique stamps.

and a bit more of a close-up

loved the way my base colours which had a sheen added to the feeling off light coming through the water.

Hope you like, thanks to all who commented last time, much appreciated.

Cross fingers for a creative 2013

Happy 2013 to all my fellow crafters.

I was lucky enough to receive a Gelli Plate from my sons for my christmas present, and I finally found time to play, first I watched a couple of You Tube vids on How To and then I had a go myself.

This is my printed page, not my normal colours but I liked the contrast and brightness,

and then this is it finished, with a bit of letter love on it, some zentangling and doodling and two modesty plasters, LOL

Hope you like I really enjoyed it and cant wait to have another play, however work is calling, bah humbug.

I also received another lovely present, a Kindle Fire, I am an avid reader and wasnt sure that I would enjoy e books, but im beginning to convert, and have found so far its quite easy to get books at reasonable prices, 99p. Which is all good.

Can I ask people to please comment on my post if they view it, as I'm beginning to get a complex, LOL.
