Gelli and Stencils

Hi there, 

My lovely husband got me a Gelli Plate for my birthday a couple of months ago. Its so much fun to play with that I have made loads of prints, but haven't actually used many of them. The piece I want to show you started off as a print using acrylic paints (Sennelier Abstract Blue and DecoArts Media Quinacridone Violet) with an Andy Skinner stencil.

Looking for something to do with the print, I spotted a new sketch book and thought the print would make a lovely cover image.

I edged it using black neopastel, which mirrored the lovely rough texture of the print then added more layers of stencilling with neopastel and archival ink through some Crafters Workshop stencils (I love the Rebekah Meier ones!). Simple, but quite effective I think.

I'm going to enter this in the Thats Crafty 'stencils and masks' challenge and also a stencils challenge on the Mixed Media World blog which I have only just discovered.
Thanks for visiting, I hope to have more to show you soon.
