Gelli plate mixed media - Andy Skinner

A had some fun time creating a layered collage using the gelli plate, decoart premium acrylics and Andy Skinner stamps and transfers and am sharing this on Andy's blog today.

Using a gelli plate print from a pile made whilst experimenting for a decoart blog post I stamped the gunge wallpaper in tea rose and added one of the French Fancy transfers and sewed round the edges leaving some of the cotton threads free.

A piece of green core'dinations paper sealed with matte medium and given a light edging of white crackle paste, finished with a watery wash of cadmium red and white gesso

Another gelli print left over for the backing layer stamped with enigma using watering can archival ink and some white gesso scraped around the edges. The 'screws' in the corners were left over from a previous Andy project.

The crackled frame and the flower were in a bits box and came out to be fitted into the layers. The sentiment is my own produced on the PC. The vintage lady is from my own collection of photographs.

This measures about 7 x 5 inches which is the size of the gelli plate I used.

It is now in my black vintage visual journal.

This is so beautiful Brenda, I really love the frame within a frame for the vintage lady to sit inside and the colour tones you achieved are wonderful. That enigma stamp looks so useful, I think I may 'need' that one! I hope you have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Anne xx

Just been enjoying this over at Andy's so it's great to see some of those lovely layers in more detail. Love the distressed Coredinations paper... looks like an old book cover. Fabulous work, as always.
