alpha/dictionary letter E

I think I finally found what deli paper is, I found something that is used to wrap sandwiches in and I think this fits the description. I am even more convinced after hearing Mary Beth Shaw yesterday on the webinar "an afternoon with stencilGirl Mary Beth Shaw".
I gave it a try on the gelli plate and I like the translucency, I used it with pearlescent paint which brings out the translucency even more.
To create texture I used 2 anti-slip mats (one for the bath and the other was for a doormat) which I recently picked up in a store similar to a dollar store I guess.



I’ve also tried the technique that Carolyne Dube demonstrated in this months video over at the colorful gelli print party, this entailed squirting some blots of paint on the plate and roughly going over it with a brayer, not to mix the colors all together but to create something  abstract. 



I teared some random pieces of these prints and glued them in the dictionary, added some stamped fairy images on tissuepaper which I colored using ordinary coloring pencils.


I will be linking this post to the colorful gelli print party and Stampotique Designers Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thanks, that's so great about the deli paper, the translucency. Because now I didn't need to figure out how to cut the stamped images, which by he way would be impossible.
