Gathered some leaves while on my daily walk through the park with Stewie…..
Then of course I had to try some gelli printing…I saw this beautiful textured photograph that served as my inspiration. You can check it out here:
It looked like it could have been done by gelli-printing so I decided to try it.
Needless to say, nothing really worked to look like the effect in the photo, but I got 5 interesting prints, all multilayered using the leaves as resists and then ghosts. I will crop them down to the “good parts” and print them onto fabric eventually.
So, these are the 5 prints:
Poor Stewie- I told him I would only be about 10 minutes….and 2 hours later…..Australian Shepherds are smart, so they know when they are being toyed with…..I think we need to form Gelli-Printers Anonymous to deal with our addictions!
2 extra prints added later: see here on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/coolquilting/9020497396/
