In my shopping basket this week is .....
..... a Gelli Plate!
Yes, I've finally succumbed, and can't wait to have a go -though I am feeling a little bit scared of it at the moment!
I also got one of these as it looked interesting - I've had a little go and it does work. Just put any marker type pen into the holder, puff air over the nib, and it creates an airbrushed look.
I've already had a go at using alcohol inks on some (with gold paint on the back).
I like the flower shape. Could be used on a canvas, or as part of an assemblage.
Found in a charity shop, this heavy metal contraption open up, so has a box thing going on, but not quite sure what it is. " Made in Spain" is etched on the bottom.
It already looks a bit steampunkish, and will be perfect for an altered project in the new year.
So - forget the boring supermarket shop .....
