woyww - brights and gelli plate

The beginnings of a gelli print.  Striving for a monochromatic  effect as I do tend to go overboard with colours.  If you doubt me check out the tags I made using the portfolio oil pastels inspired by Paperartsy tutes.

So not a lot happening on my desk but I am sure woyww will have lots of great ideas.  Join in courtesy of Julia

  16. I am intrigued with these gelli plates, they sound fascinating. However, I think I shall have to just watch for a while, my credit card cannot cope with the strain. Thank you for your visit. I have now found that I have three tiny conifers, all have come from different kits. If that is all, then I am doing well. Have a good week. xx Maggie #20

  25. I really can't understand why people pay so much for a gelliplate when lino is so cheap... tell me please...I really don't mind being convinced to try it if you can tell me the benefits over lino...

    I have always admired your colour palettes and see it as a signature mark of your style - please don't change I love your choices.

  29. I have to admit I'm not sure what's involved with a Gelli plate?
    Your tags are dazzling! ;D
    I tend to only use colour when painting with silk paints.
    Have a great week and thanks for stopping by at my place earlier
