I finally got hold of some deli paper to try with my gelli plate - only taken me a year!! I discovered this when I googled 'deli paper gelli plate' and found Kate's post
, which is where I must have seen it originally!
So I spent yesterday afternoon playing, and what made it more wonderful was that I did it with two good friends :) I started off with colours and stencils I'm happiest with...
... then branched out, adding an earth colour as per Sami Harding's
advice at Art Summer Camp
... and ended up adding colours I don't normally immediately choose as that was what my friend used and it looked amazing! That's one of the brilliant things about playing with your paints etc alongside others, whether at home with a friend or in a class.
I particularly wanted to try deli paper this week because I discovered Bible Journaling a week or so back and, keen to give it a try, I purchased a journaling Bible (it has extra wide margins for note taking ...or paint, depending on your preferences ;) )
I thought the deli paper would work well on the fine paper that Bible's are made up of. In the end, I also dived in and added paint straight to my pages, working alongside my gelli plate, using it just like I would any other journal!
I added some texture to a random page whilst cleaning off my stencil ...
...and added some gelli printed deli paper alongside one of my favourite Psalms
And that was my very happy Saturday after an exhausting first week back at school :)
