she also included this totally cool stitched little bit of rusted cloth


Thank you! I feel I will be brushing up on my rusty make things with fabric skills soon Smiley

Those fabric prints are great!  Abbeeroad, did you use a gel plate for those?  I love the different layers of prints Smiley

Neat prints, Abbee!

I'm hoping my second envelope arrives to you soon, alteredmommy. But, I just made 2 more prints and they are drying for just in case!

I actually dont have luck with the gelli plate. I do the brayer right on the fabric. I think it has to do with the paint Im using...too quick drying.

I had a lot of fun with these!!

Yeah, me too - I don't have a gelli plate so I tried using a glass plate, but it was a fail. So I've ended up working directly onto the fabric with various tools and stamps.

I was using fabric paint which is pretty thin, so it doesn't work too well on the gelli plate. I would put the fabric on the the plate as a base, but not to transfer images.  I mostly just put the paint straight onto the fabric, too.

I was able to use a gelli plate for mine but I had to work pretty quickly so that the paint did not dry out.  I also noticed that the cheap acrylic paints (the ones that come in plastic bottles) work better than the expensive tube acrylics.  Sometimes I also misted the surface with water before laying down the fabric piece.

I used a glass plate too, and used fabric lino-print paints. They are very viscous and pretty slow drying.

I would love a personal swap with you.

Interesting! I used the cheap, plastic bottle acrylic craft paint, lol. I thought I should try the more expensive tubes, but maybe not? Misting is a good idea!!
