....soooooo for some thing a little different :) :) :)

How about using your favourite Imaginarium Designs chipboard with Gelli Plate printing?!! :) :):)

Hello Hello :)

Today I would like to share with you something that is a whole loooootta fun :)

Using my favourite Imaginarium chipboard shapes to create wonderful patterns with mono printing with Gelli Plates.

I start with either some clear gesso or gel medium and small paint brush,....oh and of course my fave chipboard; you will need a few of each as they will deteriorate with repeated use with the paint.

I seal chipboard shapes on both sides with the gesso/gel medium and allow to dry. They are then able to be used as a stamp when you are creating your prints with the gelli plate.

For the printing I used a brayer, my favourite acrylic paints, a Gelli Arts printing plate, and 110gsm papers.

Below are a few of the prints that I have created the large skeletal feather [IDDL0006chipboard.

This one is a fave :)

This is also a fave :)

This one is also a have :)

Well that be it from me for the moment :) I do hope you like this fun technique using the fabulous Imaginarium Designs Chipboard :)

Cheers and Happy Creating

  1. Very interesting technique and I also love your faves, these would make great backgrounds.

  2. This is such a clever idea! I just love how it turned out!

  3. Love the idea and outcome. I think I might have to try and find a way to not lose my chipboard, I already hoard, so Id cringe to lose one to paint saturation, lol.

  4. The chipboard designs themselves really give these prints life- love the textures you've gotten from the process.

  5. Fabulous. Thanks for the tip on sealing the CB - that'll make all the difference!

  6. the effect around the edges is awesome...must try this!!

  7. Really, really LOVE how your prints turned out!!! Really....and all the little dots in the paint. wauuu... I' have printed several times with real feathers - I also LOVE how they turn out

    1. Thank you so much Anne-Mette! Anne-Mette your use of the feather with the plates is absolutely stunning!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so very much for sharing!!!!!!!!!
