In my studio: Playing with my new gelli plate

Last week I finally got myself a Gelli plate!!!

There are so many tutorials of how to make different kinds of prints with them online that it can be sort of overwhelming just where to start.
I really liked the simplicity of Linda Germain's Yoga Printmaking that I thought I would began with that. I cutout several organic-shaped stencils out of a manila folder and collected several other items that would go well with this method. 

My supplies: newsprint, hand-made stencils, string and various paints I had on hand


It was a really fun, relaxing process, and I'm anxious to use these prints in an upcoming collage!
