Fun With the Gelli Plate

August 6, 2015

This week I decided it was time to create some new collage papers, with the gelli plate as part of my plan. It was a fun morning in the studio, and some interesting collages resulted.

In between collage sessions, I always try to do some work on the panels that I’m getting ready for the gallery. I will add some paint strokes or texture and then they have to dry between coats, giving me time to work on collage.

Waiting is the hardest part of painting. I still tend to want instant gratification, which is possible with collage. Combining the two activities is a good way of working.

Here is one of the finished paintings.

    The Haiku is a beautiful, pensive, work of art.

    Every one of your art pieces is a winner.

    I love that last plate especially too! I’ve been experimenting with the roller straight on my art journal and the canvas, which has also been fun. Thanks for he inspiration!

      Thanks, Amy. I love the beautiful effects from a brayer or a roller. I have done the same thing at times — just applied it straight to the canvas with fun results.

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
