A Map of Discovery

I made a new discovery with my Gelli-printing yesterday.  I discovered how wonderful old maps take layers of color!  Here are a couple of my favorites:

Oh, the possibilities!!!  I can’t wait to use them in a collage!

I next discovered that I can print over my own drawings that I did with a fine, black Sharpie pen.  Here are some tree shapes I did:

I will probably cut these up and use them in a collage but I am excited to create a drawing that I could possibly draw, print and frame!

I made almost 100 prints yesterday.  Here are a few favorites on 90 lb hot press paper:

And some I did on deli paper:

Do you have a favorite color combination?  I’d love to hear from you!

I hope to show you how I am using some of my prints in a collage soon.

Happy Exploring!  🙂

  6. Hello dear Jill, the maps look awesome – I imagine them framed in my living room already 🙂 and the colors you mixed in the prints are suuuuper – would you like to publish a blogpost on Ana’s Learning Lab/ Fellow Learners (http://anaslearninglab.com/category/fellow-learners/) about your process of creating such a print?
    I would love to learn more about it, and I am sure other learning junkies would love it too.
    I would be honoured – what do you say? 🙂

  9. Your Gelli prints are fantastic and beautiful. Makes me want to run out and buy a kit…until then, I will continue to admire your lovely adventures in color and texture. The ones you did on the maps look like they can go into a frame now, looking forward to seeing what creations develop using the others. You always inspire, thank you for sharing.
