Gelli prints project #2: Mixed media botanical art with a video by Kim Dellow

Are you ready for project number 2 in my series on Gelli Prints and how to use them? I hope so because here it is and today I’ve turned one of my gelli printed papers from that first video into some botanical art for my wall. You will find the full process in the video plus you get to meet my model, Boston, for this week’s sketch too! And before you ask, yes, all the plants in my home do have a name!

I am pleased that you can still see the texture on that gelli print paper under the background, scroll down to get a closer look at the details. Now I’ve decorated a canvas board for this piece but you can easily use these techniques in your art journal or turn it into a card too. So what will you make?
