Happy Monday, back to work.
And Monday’s blog is Flowers and Trees.
So after a tedious day at the office,
grinding away at proposals, write-ups and other such delights,
it was so nice to come home and switch off.
The little Gelli Plate was wimpering in the drawer again,
feeling neglected and getting all resentful towards the sexy Groovi Plates, which are getting ready to go on TV this weekend.
So I got him out and played with him for an hour, and now he’s as happy as a clam again.
Here’s what we did…
Brayer a small amount of Black Acrylic Paint
over the 6″ x 6″ Gelli Plate, (£3 off until July 1st)
which is positioned on the matching Mega Mount.
(1/2 price for one more day)
Lay the stencil on the wet paint,
and blot well, using copy paper.
Remove the stencil, and blot again.
The paint underneath the stencil stays wet, you see.
Lay a sheet of A6 Double-sided adhesive
on the dry image on the Gelli Plate.
Peel and reveal!
Of course, this side is still very sticky,
so sprinkle with talcum powder
brush and cover with a big brush.
You will be amazed at the feel. It is like silk.
Smells nice too!
Go rummage around in your stash of background papers
and find something suitable.
I had a cool Shaving Foam piece which would work well.
To avoid getting bubbles,
let’s remove the top part of the wax paper,
attach just that part, and then slowly peel back the wax paper, smoothing as you go.
Love it when it works!
See what an excellent waxy looking coat the adhesive takes on when covered with talc?
Line the outside of the adhesive sheet with a Sharpie Pen and ruler.
Trim and mount to suit.
Happy with that.
It has a really deluxe feel to it.
Mount on white for freshness.
So now I will stop for the day.
Ought to tidy this room up really, but it can wait.
14 hours is ample.
Did I tick a load of boxes?
Yes. But most of them weren’t mine!
