Still playing with my Gelli Plate

Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend, lighter evenings start tomorrow! Hurray!

I have been so busy lately I forgot to post the next five of my gelli prints.

Day 17 Letters
I used a stencil but as you can see from the bottom one I forgot to reverse it at first!

 Day 18 Numbers
As you can see I didn't learn my lesson on day 17...
 ...fortunately it is on some Deli paper, sent to me by my good friend Elizabeth, so I can see it from the reverse!
 I made some more - some deliberately reversed one on half of the paper!
Day 19 Book Paper
I used my new texture plate.

Day 20 Black and Blue
I used a mixture of stamps or stencils
Day 21 Ghost print
I must say I do love ghost prints - a paler, less perfect repeat of the original print!

I am enjoying this challenge so much and learning such a lot from Birgit Koopsen's videos!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Nice prints Chris. You've made a slew of backgrounds and I bet we will be seeing them in some of your artwork soon. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. hugs-Erika

I had hoped to get here before Earth Hour, but I got caught up in a project I am working on. I had considered joining this, but I simply don't have time or the space to set it up. I am enjoying your daily makes to no end. I'm SO glad you were able to use the deli paper. I would love to send you an entire box, but the postage would cost more than the deli paper.

I especially like the ghost prints. I also often find them more appealing than the original.

Glad to read you ordered a new car.

Fabulous prints Chris, and I love the ghosts and back to fronts letters and numbers! Embrace imperfection as they say!
Only 5 more days of this wonderful challenge, how will we cope?!
