Third Week of Summer of Color5

This week Kristin gave us 2 purples and 1 yellow for our Color By Number prompt for Summer of Color 5.  Details are on her blog HERE.

Once again, I experimented with my Gelli Plate, this being the third time to use it.  For some reason, this time seemed a bit more challenging.  I did learn that yellow and purple make yuck, even when drying between layers.

Here is one of the prints which I'll save for another day.  This one has a real cool vibe going for it.



I watched this video.  I liked the idea of pressing textures/designs into the gelli plate.  But when I pressed my paper into the plate, I didn't get much of the imprint. Gonna have to practice!



I remember Carolyn Dube, in one of her recent videos, used strips of paper on her page.  I decided I would use those strips that I tried to imprint with.  After all, they had the pattern and the paint on them!  Thereby, creating another hybrid Gelli Plate print.

I decided to try to complete this particular print as an actual 8x8" journal page.  I love the weekly color quotes we're getting from Kristin so I incorporated this week's into the page.

This is so pretty. Love how you added the strips of paper. By the way, I just posted a creation with a stamp set I made that I got from the Etsy Certificate I won from your blog during the last coffee hop. I mentioned you today in my post and shared your blog address for other hoppers. I hope you can stop by and see the card I made. Crafty hugs to you.
