I have a wonderful and very generous friend name Robin.
She just bought several Dina Wakely stencils and she let me borrow this dancing man.
I had a blast today playing with my Gelli Plate and this stencil. The page on the right is my very first page in my Dyan Reaveley Art Journal (another gift from Robin).
I made this page by placing the the cityscape that I cut a while back and the dancing man on the Gelli Plate before I applied paint. Then I applied the green paint. I printed it on a piece of paper that already had some blue paint on it from a previous pull. I love the way the stencil makes a outline when you brayer over it.
The page on the left was done with my latest found stencil/mask. I put the stencil down on the Gelli Plate that still had some white paint on it. Then I brayered over it with
orange and yellow craft paint. Then I pressed the found stencil on op of that. Next, I pulled both stencils off and made the print. I love how the white just pops against the orange/yellow background. My newest found stencil is a place mat I found at the Dollar Tree. It has a really distinct pattern that is raised. It turned out so great. I love this one.
The right one is done the same way except the Gelli Plate didn't have much paint left on it when I put the masks down. I put the man and the I used a piece of fake greenery that I bought at the Dollar Tree. It looked like tall grass rolled up. I cut it up to make it unroll. That is how I got the ray looking background. I'm having a great time with my Gelli plate and stencils. Sure wish Robin had been here with her Gelli Plate.
