CLICK HERE FOR MY HAZEL & RUBY MEGA GIVEAWAY!
Hello and Happy Tuesday! Yesterday, I was up on the Hazel & Ruby Blog with a project that will
utilizes multiple crafty genres - Fabric Stitching, Painting, and
create my 'Joy' Muslin Art, I took a scrap piece of muslin (cut roughly
to size) and applied Gold Metallic paint directly to the fabric with a
I placed several Snowflake Stencil Masks on top of the Gelli Plate, then applied red acrylic paint to a 3x5 Gelli Arts Gelli Plate (again, using a brayer).
then placed the fabric on top of the Gelli Plate and ran the brayer
over the fabric to 'pick up' the paint and stencil-mask image.
be honest, the image wasn't as crisp as I thought it would be (perhaps
not enough paint or because I was using fabric), so on to Plan B.
Using the word 'Joy' from Holiday Shapes, Words, & Quotes set,
I placed the stencil-masks directly on the fabric. I then applied red
acrylic paint to the Gelli Plate, using a brayer. Using the Gelli Plate
as a 'stamp', I stamped the paint to the fabric. I removed the
stencil-masks and viola - image created!
Note: I love the small size of the 3x5 Gelli Plate....it can be used in so many creative ways, stamping, printing, etc.
the Stenciled image as a guide, I stitched around the word, using
embroidery floss. Since the Gelli Plate naturally 'framed' my word, I
also stiched around the edge to enhance the frame.
Once I placed the fabric inside a small frame, I added strips of 'Wrap It Up, Glassine & Gold' paper to the frame, and aging it with coffee. And done!
My creative wheels are spinning with ideas using our Stencil-Masks and Gelli Plates. They are a perfect match made in Heaven.
