A Mini Book of Gellis

All those gelli prints that are stacking up .... some of them have found their way into a mini book.

I used a small book that I found on the bookshelf

I cut pages from my favorite prints

and glued them directly to the pages of the book

the pages are 2 1/2 by 3 1/4

I removed some pages so it wouldn't be overly thick

62 pages plus front and back inside covers and 
of course the book cover

it still doesn't close correctly but

I plan on putting it on the shelf standing up and fanned out anyway

'eh, everybody's a critic!

Gelli practice

Two more days of printing and the stack continues to grow. 

I still feel like there's a learning curve that I'm having trouble navigating. 

So, as they say ... practices makes perfect. 


Still have a ways to go

... but it sure is fun trying to get there.

A Handful of New Gelli Prints

I'm still in the process of learning what I can do with my Gelli Plate. I'm using a 6x6 plate but would love to graduate to one of the bigger ones and definitely get the circle one that just came out. But for now, I'm satisfied experimenting with the one I have. 

My stack of prints is getting bigger and bigger. I need to start incorporating them into other projects instead of hoarding them. 

There just aren't enough hours in the day to do 
everything I want to do.

I found this in one of my art journals - I don't remember when I did it but the message is timeless. 

Did a little doodle last night

For some reason I'm fighting the urge to put a big red bird on one of the branches!
