Gelli Tape Parade

I've joined the Gelli tape parade.  I've seen so many people do this so I just had to try it.  I can tell you all the things wrong with it but instead I will tell you that each one I make will be better than the last.  This technique has endless possibilities.

I think those who doodle well, will be experts at gelli tape.   In a nut shell, you paint the gelli plate a solid color and then let it dry.  Doodle on top of the dry paint and let that dry.  When all is really dry cover the plate with clear packing tape.  I used Scotch/3M tape. Burnish, burnish and then burnish some more.  Pull up the tape and you have this cool art work.

Click the link below to see a youtube video on how this is done.  The only thing I did different is over lap my tape so I'd have a whole sheet instead of strips.
