Double The Fun

I wanted to give a shout out for Jodi at Life In Between and her daughter-in-law, Colleen for their Etsy shop – McKinney x 2 Designs!  I purchased a little gift for a friend and one of Jodi’s beautiful watercolor cards.  I am very pleased with the quality of their artwork and the fast service, right to my door!  They look like they will be doubly successful – YAY!

Speaking of FUN!  Here is a rainbow of Gelli prints I did yesterday:

I did some on 90 lb hot press watercolor paper and some on deli paper.  I used Golden Fluid Acrylics.  It was super fun to mix the colors and try a variety of stencils and other patterns.

One such experiment was using a domino to imprint patterns:

Double the fun to create the papers and use them in a collage some day…

Cheers!  🙂

    • Thanks Laura! I had so many that I liked that it was hard to choose which ones to show here. 😜 For the alphabet stencil I used red and magenta and mixed them together on the Gelli plate with my roller. ❤️

    • Hi Carmel – glad you like my prints. ❤️ I usually use one color when I make a print, let it dry and then add layers of different colors on top. If I do use two colors, I try to use ones that are in the same family. For example, I used red & magenta on the alphabet stencil one. Hope this helps you. 😄
