Gelli Plate fun with Gloss Medium!

Good Evening Lovelies and a very warm welcome to new followers!

It's been so humid here! No sun though, I've had an awful headache all day! But to take my mind off it tonight I've had a play with my Gelli Plate! I love it and get it out often, I've got tons of prints I don't know what to do with lol! But they will come in handy at some point, that's the beauty of it!

So this is a technique I saw on Pinterest yesterday and just couldn't wait to try it out! It's fabulous for all those backing papers we all bought because we needed them but never used, and I probably won't now as I do enjoy creating my backgrounds myself, so its a bit of upcycling!

I used an assortment of masks and papers and just went to work, you apply your Gloss medium to the Gelli plate with Brayer as usual, place your mask or whatever your going to imprint, then press your paper and lift, let it dry then using Distress stains splodge over the colour then wipe with a slightly damp cloth or paper towel, fabulous results!

This first one is a K&co paper a paisley pattern and a stripy one

These were just what I cut off the 12x12 sheets

Sheet music and text paper, I think these two last ones are my favourites? What do you think?

Thank you for visiting, I love reading your comments and really appreciate the time you take to visit xxx

Zoe, these backing papers are lush, so unique, I really must treat myself to one of these, I have been spending on all sorts lately, so it might have to wait a while. Do you stock this in your store hun?
