Night On The Town

The other day I showed a pic of a 2nd pull of a Gelli print that was pretty cool on its own.  However, it kept speaking to me...shouting actually...that I needed to do something with it.  As I stared at the print all I could think of was night time - trees...lights of the city shining through...the last of the blue sky fading...

So, I used the Cityscape stencil and some black acrylic to add the needed some lights on in the windows so once it dried I offset the stencil just slightly and added some white on top.  Then I ripped some strips of paper from a dictionary and adhered them to the edges of the page.

The other night I had stamped some Dian Reavely Couture Collection stamps onto some of my Gelli prints and cut them out.  I layed this on top and glued it down.  I did a wash of white over the dictionary pages...then added some Payne's Gray as a frame.  Liking it at this point....but it needed a splatter some teal ink over the top left.

I'm not yet sure it is completely finished...but I'm liking it so far.

The starting point...



  1. I like what you are doing with this. I find that gelli prints make great backgrounds.

  2. wow my gel prints are never this good, you are doing something very right!

  3. The city and couture is magnificent on this print!! It has such a fun urban feel but is still playful! So glad you shared this with the party!
