Time for another Gelli Plate project.
This is a new page in my art journal. I made the background up a few days ago using my Gelli Plate then had it sitting for a while letting me think on how I wanted to finish it up.
I did this huge green heart in the center of the page with a Crafter's Workshop stencil and the plate as well.
Soon as I was done I started kicking myself for using that color.
Instead of gessoing over the whole thing and starting over I decided to (in the immortal words of Tim Gunn) "make it work"
Ok I'm starting to like it, but not finished yet...
I'm cleaning out stencils and found this old Club Scrap one that had the saying on it. I rubbed Prima ink through it and then highlighted the word heart with a white gel pen to make it pop off the page.
The little circles under are from a rub on.
Finally as the end bit I sprayed heavy along the top with Dylusions Black Marble and lift it up to get lots more drips coming down my page.
NOW I like it!
Lesson of the day, don't give up and immediately try to get rid of something you aren't happy with. Work with it. Who knows, in the end it may be worth it.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
