WOYWW ... Gelli-plate-tastic

Good evening fellow crafters, I've decided to plunge into the world of  WOYWW having been fascinated by other people's desks for sometime!  On my desk this Wednesday evening is mostly the results of my recent (i.e. Sunday and Monday night first-time play with my gelli-plate and various stencils.)

Bags of paints and my trusty silhouette.  You can also see some of my paper prints I used as rough paper which are quite nice too and might keep in as part of my stash. You can't see my most important crafty companion .. my radio.  It fell off my desk because there is too much on it and it is now residing underneath.  Still works and I have Jo Whiley keeping me company this evening.

Now I have been putting off this experimentation since last summer, but it was no good, I had to give it a go.  And what did I think you may ask? ..  I LOVED IT!  
This is just a small sample.  I currently don't have many stencils but I did improvise a bit, and made a couple of stencils myself out of card, using my Silhouette.

I love this one in particular.  You can't really see from the photo, but I used pebeo iridescent paint so it is all shimmery. 

So this evening I've been making backgrounds for a couple of tags I made a the weekend (see previous blog).  Hope you like them and thanks for stopping by. Thank you Julia for hosting this weekly event. x


  1. Wow, it's all fab...I too have a gelli that I somehow haven't made time to play with! I must follow your lead!

  2. Oooh, I love the colours you work with and the patterns too. That tree one is fantastic. I can't comment on techniques cos I don't do paper stuff, I'm a fabric and yarn gal. Colour floats my boat though and I really like that last pic!

  3. I really like the tree background! I've managed to avoid gelli plates so far!

  4. Looks like you did have a lot of fun playing with your gelli plate - love the tree one in particular. I have a small gelli plate but have only used it a couple of times - must try harder!

  5. I have only just got round to playing with my gelli plate and like you I love it. I think once you get everything ready it's quick and easy to make lovely background papers.
