A Happy Accident – Gelli Plate & Brayer Fun

I finally got some time the other night to play with my new Gelli plate that I got for Christmas! I’d seen a couple of videos about them, but hadn’t used one before myself. I was just playing really, finding out how to use it, how to create texture and what colours to use. I created a few sheets that I’m pleased with and some that look a bit close to mud!!

The thing I ended up liking most was a complete surprise and accident though, it was this:

The sheet of paper I used to clean my brayer, palette knife & foam shapes on! I absolutely love how this ended up. It feels so free and random. I don’t think I’d ever have ended up with this if I set out to create it on purpose.

Spend some time looking at those scrap pieces of paper you use as a palette, to dab your brushes or protect your workspace. Who knows what kind of treasures you’ll find in there!
