Gelli print collage...

Started making flower petals from a piece of gelli printed paper and ended up with a couple of flowers in my journal. Here were the pages before I started to cut them up:

Not sure yet what I will do next but here is the beginning of a gelli-printed collage.

  1. When they're cut up like that, they remind me of batik fabrics. Gotta do some gellis this weekend, I'm jonesing...

    1. I know how it is ... I did around 20 minutes of pages before dinner this evening, just cause it was calling to me! haha

  2. Lovely colors and design. I like the simplicity of your collage, it feels like spring. I know I would finish it with some zentangle or doodling, but that's me. Looking forward to see how it ends in your hands.

    1. I may have to add some paint around the areas at the bottom because I worked on the back side page and some paint shows through! Oh well, makes it exciting...
