More Gelli Plate Papers

A few days have gone by during which I've created more collage papers using my Gelli Plate. I'm discovering that this wondrous artist's tool can produce a myriad of paper designs, limited only by one's imagination. How did I ever do without it before?

Anyway, as I promised in my earlier post, here are a few more papers produced on the Gelli Plate. These were made using nothing more than paper and string to mask off certain areas, allowing the color or colors underneath to show through:

An old file folder cut into wavy strips was used to make the paper on the left, while the more intricate design on the right was obtained by punching out portions of construction paper and a file folder cut into strips.

A simple stencil made from an old file folder produced this paper, using just three colors and turning the stencil in different directions.

The papers below were made using cotton crochet string, cut into various lengths and tossed haphazardly onto multiple layers of wet paint:

The fun you can have making papers with a Gelli Plate can become so addictive that you never get around to using them -- because you're too busy making more papers! Just sayin'..........!!!
