And the second ornament in holidays’ mood, let’s make a gelli printed pine tree! Step by step, here we go:
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.
I folded my dry prints like harmonic inch by inch.
I closed my print on my folds till I got a simple stripe and I punched a hole in the middle.
I trimmed my print to a triangle shape.
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:
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:
Very gelli holidays everyone!
