Summer of Color Week #2 Gelli print prep...

This week for the Summer of Color challenge (orange and hot pink for this week) I thought I would start earlier and actually USE the gelli prints I make for it...

So this morning I started gelli printing some papers to use for collage or a journal page. Here are some of the prints. I have discovered my camera doesn't want to give me as bright colors as the real thing, as well as making the photos all have a more yellowing tinge even though I am using fluorescent lights and not regular light bulbs. I am sure there must be a setting on my camera for that but I have to figure that out once I download the manual since I no longer have any documentation (it's an old Panasonic Lumix). There really IS some hot pink in there!


Here are some closeups:




and some music and old book pages too:


Now I have a few days to make something for the challenge and will post it here by the deadline on Sunday!

  1. Looks like you had a fun day! I like the honeycomb stencil on a few of them. I need to make that one... In fact, I need to play with my Silhouette more. Anyway, great prints, looking forward to what you do with them.

  2. They look great. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with them.

  3. These cameras today can do most anything. It's just that I do not have one. You will figure yours out in time.

  4. Beautiful papers you've made! Thanks for sharing with the party!
