And then yesterday I got my first Mail Art in the form of a post card from Leslie! Testing out my new PO Box and making it pretty!
I hadn't played with the gelli plate for a while and it was calling to me so I made some starter background pages this morning which I will turn into post cards (or maybe ATCs, although I prefer to do a whole page then cut it specifically for those). I will do some more with these before I cut them into card sizes to wait to send out. I love the gelli plate... so simple: paper and paint and the result is always fun! (If not, just do another print over and eventually you have an unexplainable thing of beauty!).
Here's a close-up of one I particularly liked:
And here are my very high=tech techniques for some of the patterns...
For the bubble lines:
And for the overlapping circles, I just used this contraption several times on the gelli plate before I printed...
Here is how you make it:
Told you it was high-tech!
So now to just join more swaps and find some new Mail Art buddies and I am good to go!
