I Have A Dream by Alison Hall


I was playing around with my Gelli Plate the other night, creating blocks of colour, and I loved the results so much, I photographed them, and printed some out in different sizes to use as backgrounds. I've used a 6x4" print on my project today. 

Here's what I used...

DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Paint - Primary Yellow, Cadmium Orange Hue, Primary Magenta, Green Gold, Cobalt Teal Hue, Phthalo Blue, Payne's Grey
Carabelle Studio Stamp Sets - "Joy", "Couture et damier"
Ranger Inkssentials Collage Glue Stick
White Copier Paper

Here's what I did...

1. I used the 8x10" Gelli Plate with the DecoArt Media Acrylics to create a background on white copier paper, then scanned and printed it out at 6x4". Here's my original print.

2. I used the glue stick to adhere my print to a That's Crafty! White/Greyboard Postcard. 

3. I painted the edges with Payne's Grey DecoArt paint, then stamped the edges with images from "Couture et damier". 

4. I stamped the girl and the phrase from "Joy", and my postcard art was finished.

I love that I now have a fab background that I can print anytime I need it. I might even frame one as it is, to add a splash of colour to my living room wall!

Have a very creative day!
