I'm having a blast making my own masks and stencils and playing with my Gelli plate. Fair warning.. Gelli printing is addicting. It's also going to be the recycler's best friend. There is a huge clothes hamper next to my desk at the office that we use to recycle paper. I grabbed a few 11x17 sheets to try with my Gelli plate. Let me just say, the recycle bin will have less paper in the future. The thought of using all the paper a second time for art just makes my heart flutter. All my non crafty co-workers will just roll their eyes as I leave each day with a stack of recycle paper.

|This is the print from the Gelli Plate|
The lady above is printed on a page from a magazine. She is a homemade mask. I found a picture I liked. Printed it on card stock. Covered it with clear packing tape to kind of water proof it and then cut it out. Instant mask. I did the same with the chevron.
Have you made any homemade stencils or masks?
