And the second ornament in holidays’ mood, let’s make a gelli printed pine tree! Step by step, here we go:

first pull


second pull

First I made monoprints on my gelli plate with phthalo green and light green, I used cosmic swirl stencil, I liked the idea how the swirls are turning.

folded prints

I folded my dry prints like harmonic inch by inch.

punch a hole

I closed my print on my folds till I got a simple stripe and I punched a hole in the middle.

trimmed print

I trimmed my print to a triangle shape.

glass bead gel


white acrylic

I added some glass bead gel from Golden Artist to get a bit of a shine.





And then some white acrylic to let it snow on my shining trees.





And while they were drying:

jute rope altered with distress ink

I used vintage photo distress ink to alter some jute rope and small pieces of papers for the trunk. At the edge of my trees I altered with pine needles and forest moss. Tadaah:

    I really like how your trees turned out and think they might look nice strung together as a Christmas garland. Thank you for showing us how you did it.
