Art Journal Portrait mixed media page Gelli Printed Background

My dd and I have been busy printing gift tags, Christmas cards and background papers on our handmade Gelli plate. If you haven't had a chance to experiment with this type of monoprinting, you should! There is no right or wrong way, just ways that work out better than others. If you don't like something it is very easily covered up to create another dimension. We cut our own stamps (texture plates), basic stencils and used found objects to print a multitude of papers. This is one of my not so good prints that I turned into an inspirational mixed media piece. Gelli print, acrylic paint, oil pastel, ink, collage.


 I love the way the paper does a lot of the work for you.

Acrylic Monoprint Man in Glasses

I really like the spontanious nature of pulling these prints, the texture you get is even more unpredictable than watercolors. This one of the old man in glasses was created with Golden Open acrylics and detailed with ink on AF cardstock. Hope you enjoy.
