Peek Through



Hi Everyone

Today Friday, is project 2, over at #birgitkoopsengelprintingchallenge – #31daysofgelprinting – #falliginlovewithgelprinting on Instagram, and the theme is Peek Through.  I started with a geli printing plate filled with green acrylic paint and built up different shades onto a piece of card.  I then added the wording ‘I am Fashion’ and a few circles cut from old magazines.  The spine is covered in Tim Holtz wash tape.

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are having as much fun as I am using my geli plate each day.

Crayon Resist

Hi Everyone

Today, Monday, is project 5, over at #birgitkoopsengelprintingchallenge – #31daysofgelprinting – #falliginlovewithgelprinting on Instagram and  the theme is Crayon Resist.  I started by using stencils and a wax pencil on the card stock.  Then using my geli plate, inked up with muted pastel and red acrylic paint, which formed dark patterns on the card stock.  I then repeated the process and on my geli plate pink, burgundy and light blue acrylic paint.  I then took a baby wipe, and wiped off the excess paint shedding light on the crayon shapes.

Geli Printing Challenge


Hi Everyone

Starting today for the month of March is a fantastic geli plate challenge by Brigit Koopsen who is a favourite artist and blogger of mine.  Tune in each day for my posts and follow me on instagram #stardatejaneway.  Today is CIRCLES.


I started by using my geli plate on 2 sides of my art journal with light pastel acrylic paint randomly rolled across the plate surface then sprayed with water for a lighter feel and took off the excess water with kitchen roll.  I then used circles cut from bath sponges again in light pastels and dotted them over the two pages making it look co-ordinated.  I then cut out some circle shapes in different colours and from old book pages then cut different items from old magazines such as flowers, hearts, butterflies, and also used Ranger word stamps.  I then drew around the circles in both black and white pens, making them stand out.
