gelli fun

After watching Augusts’ gelli plate party over on Carolyne Dube’s blog I had to get some sticky back felt circles (the ones u use to protect the furniture) and have it ago myself, just had to, all you out there who have a gelli plate know what I mean.  This weekend I was able to fit in a couple of hours of play, joy!  I started out by making a texture plate:

I put the circles in a spiral. I then grabbed all my tools with circles (homemade stencils, cork, bubble wrap, masks, tubes):

And started playing!!!  I was having fun, but wasn’t all that excited about the results until I started layering mask on top of the backgrounds. I was over the moon with excitement about the results:

I love the birds so much that I'm thinking of getting a frame (a long rectangle for 3 pictures) and framing them. What do you think?
And on top of these I've got a couple of beautiful images to use in a future project:

 It won't be too long before I do some more prints, that's for sure, way too much fun!
Thanks for stopping bye and hope to see you soon back.
