A new Monday means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. It's still STAMPtember, are you enjoying it too? This week is all about techniques. Such as, what is your favorite technique, or maybe you want to try a new one you've never tried before. Show us!
It been a long while since I played with the Gelli Plate. So why not expirement a bit with it. It is always a surprise what I get with it. I started to make a pattern with washi tape.
With three colors of paint (Ruby, Tangerine and Lemon) and Peacock Doily stencil I got the following result. A bit too bright then for what I was going for.
I applied a few strips of Washi tape in the opposite direction. With some White paint and without another stencil or something else to use for some extra texture, I made an almost whole white layer.
Nope, that's not what I had in mind. Well, why not try the Peacock Doily stencil and a baby wipe to try to get rid of some of the white paint? And it worked! Yes a new technique is born! Well for me it is... The paper I used is plain printer paper and you have to be careful with it.
I'm so not good at remembering to take pictures along the way. But the only extra step that I did was to create another layer with the Gelli Plate and Tangerine and Lemon. To bring the original colors back a little. The red was too bright for me. Then I adhered it into my art journal.
Layers, layers and more layers. So cool how with each layer it all comes together. For this layer, I used Gathered Twiggs and one of my favorite Simon Says Stamp stencils, the Diamond Circles.
With stamps and stencils I've applied more layers.
And of course, I need to use washi tape!
