Several months ago, I received a complimentary Print Making Starter Kit from Gelli Arts ®. What a wonderful value! And a great way to start exploring the possibilities of printing on a gel plate without investing a lot of money in supplies.
Included in the kit is a 5" square gel plate, a brayer, 6 little cups of their acrylic paint, some wooden sticks used to scoop the paint onto the plate, 4 kraft tags and several different items to use to apply texture. All for under $20!
I finally had time to open the kit and play and using my signature printing technique, came up with a set of 4 art prints, ready to frame. I love the depth of color i was able to achieve with just 6 colors of paint. I also love how this plate allows me to pick up dried paint from other printings so even more texture is added as the day progressed.
Today I made a triangle pop-up book using some of the tags I printed along with these art prints. I'll talk about that next Sunday!
