Color Prints for Journal

I recently told you about a color journal I started with an old ledger.  During my vacation at the lake, I was able to make a few gelli-prints for it.

For the one below, I used watered down acrylic paints for my background print.  When it was dry, I pressed real leaves on top.  I really like this one:

I like how I used a negative print of Thimbleberry leaves for this one:

I also printed a real fern over it like a stamp.

You will never guess what I used to create my circular patterns in this one:

An old sprinkler head!  I like the dreamy feeling of it.

And I love the jammy colors in the one below:

It reminds me of picking huckleberries and the berries staining my fingers.

Happy Creating!  🙂

  1. You describe them so wonderfully, Jill. I love how you say the last one is jammy – and it is! These will make beautiful backgrounds for pieces of your multi-media artwork or be cut into outfits or flowers – never know – and can’t imagine the beauty you can/will create!
