So i decided to play a bit on my gelli plate last night, now i only have one real stencil (was waiting to see if i enjoyed the plate before investing to much).
Oh man it was fun, maybe a bit to much. I made about 30 prints. In about an hour. Oops Roll Eyes tbh the only reason i stopped was that i ran out of paper.
They look rather dull in photos, but its nightime and i cant get any better shots tonight. Just imagine them bright and poppy lol
Here is my favorite print and a collage of some of the others:

Lovely!  That's a great stencil too.  I have a gelli plate and have to get around to using it more.  I have to admit, using cheaper paints was not very satisfactory - the spread thin and just did not take the pattern nicely.

Don't forget you can use so many other things on hand as masks or to make into stencils or pattern makers- leaves, flowers.  Reused plastic packaging - bubble wrap, or use flat hard packaging to cut your own stencils, or foam packaging - cut into shapes, or carved into to make stamps/faux lino.  Or ask those who have die cutting machines and dies to cut some stencils and masks for you too!

Do you happen to know if embossed items work? My mom has an embosser and I wasnt sure if it would leave a mark or not?

Ive been to bisy with other projects to get around to cutting some stencils. I just got a box of transparencies at a yard sale, I want to cut some out of that. Im really wishing my cricut wasnt broken during the move lol

Oooooh - that is too bad about the cricut, that would have been a marriage in heaven!  Embossed items may work, but because it is not so deep, the impression may be light or not very sharp - try, maybe I am wrong - it may lead to some really cool ghost prints too!
