On Sunday I was up at the Stamp Attic
in Wantage holding my techniques class, (a big hello to everyone there :) anyway.... I was lucky enough to receive an early xmas present from Wendy.... a Gelli Arts printing plate, I have had my eye on these for a while and could not wait to give it a go.
So here are my first attempts, colours on the first one are in this order,
- Traditions Indian Yellow
- " Quinacridrone Violet
- Cyan Blue
- Traditions Sapphire blue (thinned with glazing medium)
Finally.... a sneak peak... it was finished in Carbon Black with a couple of stencils from a range I am releasing early next year.
And some Pish!........
I can see me having lots of fun with this :)
Finally, this piece is not using the Gelli Plate but is acrylic on watercolour paper, with more new stencils.
Thanks for reading and hope you like the stencils thus far!
fabulous .. I like the first one most..the comb texture gives her really a hair look.. great!ReplyDelete
Have a very merry christmas!
Wow you make it look so simple :)ReplyDelete
merry Christmas to you and yours
Thank you Von... still loving the hint of Pink Rejoice piece you did..... the key seems to be planning your colours beforehand, making sure they are not too heavy on the Gelli plate and my love..... translucent acrylic colours :)Delete
Have a great one :)
knew it was the perfect gift for you, Merry Christmas!
Thanks a million!!!Delete
Your art work looks stunning, I had my eye on the plates as well. We will see, have a good Christmas. Love FrancescaReplyDelete
Thanks so much Francesca :)Delete
Lucky old you!! I'm sure it's really difficult to get results this fab Andy! I love the top one, the 'pish' (??) and your last piece on the watercolour paper with THOSE new stencils is delicious! Have a wonderful Christmas and see you on the 6th at the CB!ReplyDelete
Thanks Julia :)Delete
love the look of your stencils Andy and so excited this time next week I should be unwrapping a gelli plate. How long before I can unwrap some of your stencils. Merry xmas.ReplyDelete
Thanks Siobhan, hopefully launching at Stitches February :)Delete
Loving the artwork using the Gelli plate, looking forward to Santa bringing mine even more now.ReplyDelete
The stencils are fab-u-lous, feel really lucky to have used some of them already at the techniques class last Sunday.
Really looking forward to them 'going live' next year, they are on my wish list already.
Have a great Christmas.
Thanks Shirley, you will love it!! you have a great Christmas also :) xReplyDelete
Ooh, sneaky peek of your new stencils...look fabulous.ReplyDelete
Thanks Kyla :)Delete
These artworks are great Andy, I've been wanting a Gelli plate for ages and it's great to know that you can get them in the UK now. Hopefully Santa got my letter. Lina xReplyDelete
I think you will absolutely love it Lina.... try tweeting Santa, he responds allot faster lol!Delete
Sorry Andy, I forgot to wish you a Merry Christmas. Have a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year.xReplyDelete
And you to Lina xDelete
I am amazed by the thoughts in your head and the 'gob smacking' results on paper (or card or canvas). Why I am so drawn to that skull baffles me, but I will have to buy the stamp. Come up north and do a workshop and beg our Lindsay to attend too.ReplyDelete
Love the colours and experiments Andy and I can't wait for the new range to come out.ReplyDelete
I am loving the textures course too, great inspiration.
