Let the Sky Fall

Whenever I sit down to create some Gelli prints, I always have an art journal out to mop up the excess paint on my plate. The prints from these ‘leftovers’ add instant texture to any background and provide the perfect starting point for a project.

Today I’d like to share an art journal page featuring some Darkroom Door stamps – Carved Birds Vol 1, Alphabet Medley & Chicken Wire.

The page features many layers of paint and ink. The birds were doodled on with gel pens & a white Sharpie paint pen to make them stand out from the background a little more.

You might not have noticed but aside from using the Alphabet Medley set for my journaling, I also used the smaller set as a background stamp.  I haven’t cut each of the letters apart yet – I think I might leave each of the alphabets intact so I can use them this way more often!

I have the habit of taking lots of step by step pics so decided to create a slideshow of the process.

  1. Robyn, this looks great! Good idea to use up the leftover gelli paint, a fabulous start.
    I like the texture, the colors, the penwork on the birds, the quote…

  2. So pleased you liked it Godelieve! I find Gelli prints are the perfect way to start an art journal page & it means I don’t waste all that beautiful paint. I love using your bird stamps – they are so cute & quirky:) I always think of them as chickens – perhaps because we have local chooks that I hear clucking most mornings.

  3. I was more than happy to discover this website.
    I wanted to thank you for ones time for this particularly wonderful read!!
    I definitely liked every part of itt and i also have you saved to fav to check out new information in your website.

  4. I was especially captivated though by the e – Book reading capabilities of the Kindle.
    Occasionally your farmer will escape from your enclosure.
    Placement the ball ahead in your stance, have minimal arm swing in the takeaway and use a slight hinging of the
    wrists.
