I know you can just dab paint through a stencil straight onto your project, but let me show you how fun it is using a Gelli Plate.
- Gelli Arts Plate (I'm using the 6"x6" plate)
- Assorted Acrylic Paint (I'm using Dina Wakley Media Paint, Night)
- Assorted Stencils (I'm using Crafter's Workshop 12"x12" Ronda Palazzari Well Rounded, 6"x6" is also shown... it's my fave so I have both sizes)
- Paper (I'm using scrapbook paper, but you can use any kind of paper)
- Sponge (I'm using a make-up sponge)
- Craft Mat or Palette Paper
HOW TOThis is just another simple, few step tutorial, but adding this extra layer to my cards really makes me happy!
STEP ONE: dab out a little bit of paint onto your craft mat or palette paper
STEP TWO: dab your sponge into the paint, and dab off any excess blobs
STEP THREE: place your stencil over the Gelli Plate
STEP FOUR: dab the painty make-up sponge over the stencil
STEP FIVE: Lift off your stencil
STEP SIX: place your paper over the Gelli Plate and rub it into the plate to pick up the stenciled paint.
STEP SEVEN: Lift off your paper and VIOLA!!!
Repeat the steps over and over again adding one or multiple stencils onto your plate before picking up the print. I think my favorite is the bottom right, YUM!
Next week, we'll be adding more onto the 4"x6" cards and concluding this series. I'll be sure to use these in my layout showcasing Thanksgiving week. I can't wait, to finish these cards up and use them! Then we'll be on to doing some fun mixed media Christmas projects!
