Playday

Today was a fun day:) 
My friend Sarah...who I hadn't seen in ages....came over and we played with gelli plates....we had fun:) 
So, after playing with the plates for a couple of hours and accumulating a pile of printed papers, tags and journal pages we decided to stop and actually make something with some of them!
Here are the results!
 These pages are quite different for me....but as Sarah very kindly said and I hope it's true, they still look like I made them! 
Used pieces of the gelli printed papers  with addded stamping..... on the pages, left some empty space.....that is really hard for me:).....and added a few extra pieces to enhance it.


 the gelli printed piece on this page was printed onto a book page.....the squares were stickers on a sheet that was printed onto.....liked this idea!



 And finally this page which I think is my favourite:) Drew through an Andy Skinner stencil and then added more of my fav umbelliferous flowers.......the flower heads are the gelli-printed bits on this page.....the little circle stickers were printed while they were still on the sheet....this works great as they end up co-ordinated!



He is just so nonchalantly amphibious:)

Looks like you had a very creative and fun day :-)
Yes, they definitely look like _you_ :-D They're adorably stunning! I so do love the natural colour combo(s) you used, the white spaces, the stamp images (!!) and the sentiments ... everything is just perfect. Have a great Sunday; Suzanne

Every one is stunning. And I like how you've used very muted colours on your gelli prints.

Oh Great fun and wonderful results for you and your friend ...
I admire your restraint in stopping printing to make something out of your prints...
once I get to printing I find it hard to stop until my back tells me=Done!
Great idea to print on book pages and your umbrellicious flowers are very cool too!
