A Quick Gelli Plate exercise...

Out on the Gelli Arts Blog today there is a contest to win some awesome prizes...and a great tutorial too on how to make decorative tapes using the Gelli Plate, Paints, Found Objects and Clear packing tape!
Check it out here: http://gelliarts.blogspot.com/2013/05/gelli-transfer-prints-and-giveaway.html?showComment=1369520676234#c2627148792494601964

Below are photos of my experimental play after watching their tutorial video:
I don't have time to go into details today, but will post some how to's later. It's a holiday weekend, and
we are ready to get out and do something. Two days off in a row...that is a rare happening for us! So enjoy the peek at just one thing you can do with the Gelli Plate! And...we have them for sale in our store at the Cr@ft L@b in Deepwater, MO! We will also ship anywhere in the US!

One quick note: I used parchment paper for my mask...and the paints I used are by Viva Decor...their awesome Stamp Paints. We just received our shipment yesterday! I am in love with these paints...and am happy to find that they also work great for Gelli Printing! :-)
