The weather today is pretty grey but I like to think of this page as grey sparkle rather than dull weather grey.
As I splattered the background I managed to cover myself in black ink as well as the page and the floor. Don’t worry I did the splatting outside!
I did have a very nice time with my gelli plate and some pages from an old dictionary. I used a used gift card and feathers as texture creators in the paint. I mixed some paints, but stuck to the grey theme.
I also did some prints using dry deli paper for a lovely see through effect when I stick them on my final page.
It really is wonderful how many effects can be created using lots of different techniques and tools. I am so pleased with the gelli prints on this page.
All of this journal fun was inspired by the week six prompts over at the Get Messy Art Journal website. The idea was to cover the background with the same colour, so I chose greys. I did leave a little white showing, but it is gesso, so not the original page and not cheating I hope!!
I hope you have been creating this week!
Happy Thursday x
I love it. I always forget about the power of the basics like grey. Super effective without relying on bright pops of colour.
I was so tempted to add colour so badly!
what a great idea to use your gelli plate with printed pages!
I need to get the gelli plate out more, it seems to generate ideas!
Your grey gelli printing is awesome & were so right to stick to the one colour, I love it!
Sticking to the same colour was so hard!!
I am in love with gelli prints. I think I may be over-using them, but hey, its fun and messy and I love the result. Your grey pages look brilliant.
Thanks so much! I need to keep practicing with the gelli plate, but it does surprise me in a good way every time I use it.
That all works wonderfully! So dynamic too!
Thanks so much Romana!
