ooooo....inkygeliness on a journal page

I carried on playing with my gelli plate and inks for this week's Stampotique project.  What is great about colouring a page with dye ink pad inks is that you can use a journal with thin pages and they don't need gluing together to make them thicker or gessoing!

This time I brayered some inks onto my gelli plate, then placed a stencil on it and brayered some ink through that before placing my journal on the plate and taking a print.

Stamping onto the gelli plate then taking a print off it makes the stamped image look slightly different (and reversed!)

I turned the gelli plate over so I could see where I was placing my reversed stamped image.....

....then added some more 'shrooms' stamped on text paper, and repeatedly stamped 'each life needs it's own quiet place'.

'Owlseeyou' is enjoying his own quiet place!  I gave the page a bit more 'zing' by adding some colour from my ink pads using a sponge.

Over on the Stampotique blog post I have a question for you!
