For What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday this week I have to show off my new 'toy' - a stencil burner - it's brilliant and cuts stencils in a far more accurate way than the Stanley knife did. In order to get a quick 'play' with it I cut out a simple outline of a chicken and decided to make some gelli prints.
For the printing I chose to use the colour scheme from the Witch Hazel colour palette I made for 'Colour Me Weekly' a couple of weeks ago. I found that the printing worked quite well despite mixing Dulux emulsion (and anything else I had) with the acrylic paints, and my gelli plate remained unharmed!
I turned a couple of the prints into Easter cards and added some stitching in the golden yellow colours to highlight the 'combs'.
It wasn't until I photographed the cards that I noticed how tatty my table is - I don't notice it in real life! The stains are where my water pot for paint usually stands - perhaps I'll try and do something about it - or perhaps not!!!
