The Gingerbread Man Enjoys Water Sports #Clairefontaine #GelliPlate #KDAllegriArt

Last Wednesday, I loaded up my gelli plate and everything under the sun that I thought might be useful and headed over to make art with my friend Kathy.  We had such fun!

I had a little gingerbread man tag from a bottle of ginger syrup that I used with two of the prints, and I added a little linework with Sharpies and Gellyroll pens, after I got home.

She had never used a gelli plate before and I haven't used mine very often because I don't have too much room.  She has a 4 tables worth, so this was a perfect opportunity for both of us--except for one thing.

Only one gelli plate!  I had found a site that mentioned using rubber plumber's plates for monoprinting.  Since the plates only cost 99 cents, I decided to give them a try (save your 99 cents!).  I wasn't happy with the results from my plumber's plates, but did manage some time with the gelli plate.

These are the prints I made, (including the two above before adding the linework).  You'll be seeing these pop up in various art journal pages in the not-too-distant future.
