Gelli print catch up!

Hi everyone! I have really been enjoying Brigit Koopsen's 31 Day Gelli Print challenge - it is an Instagram only challenge but I have shown the previous 10 here and here.

Day 11 was Paper tube so I used an old thread holder and some toilet roll tubes,  one squeezed, another one inside the other.

Day 12 - heart
I used one of the prints I had made that I wasn't so happy with and punched out some hearts. I doodled onto them and made a card.

Day 13
Pigment Inks
I wasn't so sure about using Distress Inks but I was quite pleased with the results

Day 14 Tissue paper - my favourite so far....

...I used some of the tissue papers I made to layer up into some pieces to use in my journals and an ATC. I am looking forward to having time to make lots more of these!

Day 15 Lines
 I used various methods to make these lines - corrugated card. wallpaper, stencils, some old mesh, drawing with a 'credit card'

Day 16 Feather
I had to die cut some feathers as my real ones are in such safe place that I can't find them!
 This was after using the gelli plate...
 I was happier once I had stamped on them too 
I use a feather stamp for these.

Birgit Koopsen has some excellent videos on the Gelli Arts blog and I really am learning so much!

A quick update on our car - they couldn't find the fault on it and want it Thursday!!!!

Thanks for looking, Chrisx

These are magical. Each technique is so different and shows how much thought went into each piece. Love these.

I've been enjoying seeing everyone's creations Birgits Challenge has really brought everyone's pattern play out, very uplifting and great to see that nothing really goes to waste as they can be recycled or printed/stamped over again and again. Fabulous makes Chris, thank you for sharing & fingers crossed with the car.
Happy Sunday hugs Tracey x

Great prints, Chris. The gelli plate I made has been sitting behind my work table gathering dust. I only used it once. This helps me see the possibilities. I love those die cut feathers and the hearts card!

Amazing Gelli print papers and I'm loving the feathers that you created - beautiful 😁. I hope you had a great weekend and many apologies for not being around, I've had flu the past week. Although I can't really complain as I'm feeling much better than I was - just have a nasty cough left which doesn't seem to like the cold weather we've been 😉. Take care! J 😊 x
