Journal Soup Class

Journal Soup is a class I'm taking from the fabulous Kate Crane and it's all about  journaling outside the journal - on scraps of cardboard, and off-cuts of mount board etc.

Here is one of my latest pieces.  It is acrylics, pastels, inks and bits and bobs of collage on a piece of cardboard packaging.

What do you do with all those Gelli prints?


  




Gelli Prints

Some of them are just the result of cleaning off the brayer or practice stamps and stenciling.....




and some of them will become journal pages (eventually)
but, I have a lot of prints just waiting....




....so I got busy with a rotary cutter and cut them up into two inch squares (you get 20 pieces if your Gelli plate is 8x10) and I stuck them down on a canvas board with matt medium.  I decided that they were a bit too uniform in size so I started to cut them into random sizes and strips.

I am quite pleased with the result :-)  What do you think?
