Anyway, whilst having a quick 5 minute tidy-up, I found the pieces of blown wallpaper that I used to create patterns on the Gelli Plate, together with a piece of painted card that was for a particular project, but never used.
So, rather than put them in the "sometime" box, I made some quick cards. A classic example of me getting sidetracked!
This wallpaper made a brilliant pattern when used on the Gelli plate, using a selection of green acrylics. Too busy for my walls, but fab as a background. Perfect recycling!
This wavy pattern would look quite good on walls, but another great one for the Gelli Plate too. There was mainly gold paint on the Plate, but the shimmer doesn't show up in the photo.
And yes, I've still got quite a few turquoise things with wings!
I painted a background for a particular project but didn't use it, so I've just added some stamping and stencilling. The bird probably looks a little large for the tree - but it's a cuckoo!
