This week I tried a new medium: Gelli art. I had so much fun with it as did my nine year old daughter.
Clouds No. 1 – Polar bear under snow cloud
Acrylic paint rolled onto the gelli plate
cut out card templates block the paint from covering the whole sheet of paper that I lay ontop of the plate
Clouds No.2 – Balloon floating up to the clouds
This time I used more than one colour, plus cloud templates. I then experimented with brushing paint across the Gelli plate (yellow, white, red) and laid the paper down to add to the first print.
Thanks goes to Jess Racklyeft who demonstrated this technique within her own amazing illustrations as a fellow participant in Tania McCartney’s 52 week Illustration Challenge.
