Art Journal using Gelli Print ETC.

believe blue and green

I put together this art journal layout with basically “stuff” in “piles” on my table. The main part of the background is Gelli prints on coffee filters (blue and green acrylic paints).

I used a couple of new stamps ordered from Paper Bag Studios (the little postal stamp and the checkerboard), and with my order, Roben put in a couple of prints. I used one of them on each page.

Then I added yellow highlights, stamping, and some ephemera that has been in a stack for a while. I also used several little collage pieces torn from coffee filter Gelli prints.

The butterflies are also Gelli prints on white card stock, cut on the Vagabond with Tim’s Movers and Shapers die and then dipped in melted UTEE. So, they actually stand off the page.

believe blue and green

This is a color combination that makes me happy.
