Gelli Printing - Taking online class

Let the Gelli Printing begin. 

One must first have a Gelli plate, plenty of paint, paper and lots of room.

 Learning ombre painting. 
 These are ready for additional layers. 
 Kind of look neat just as they are.
 Three printing off one set up of paint. 

This is called a ghost print.
When I first started printing I made my own gelli plate from Gelatin.  It was really easy and keeps in the refrigerator for months.

The Newest Crowns

This is a cloth crown made from embroidered fabric from a recycled skirt.  The picture is done with photoshop and printed on fabric.  It will have beads and some embroidery once it is completed.

Queen of Fairy Tales

This crown is made from paper to show how paper can be used first and then you can translate this into fabric.
