Gelli Plate Greeting Cards

Harmony Birthday Card

Something i am pretty well known for at this point in my life amongst family, friends and coworkers is making birthday cards for people. Here are a couple i've made the last couple of months.

The above was made using a Gelli Plate and stencils. The back i did up a little differently than usual:

Birthday Card Back

Corset style! All the greetings are exposed when unlaced!

Birthday Card Cupcake

This card is also a Gelli Plate print with a cupcake wrapper glued with soft gel (so it dries completely transparent)

Bird of Peace Birthday Card

Again a Gelli Plate print with stencils and masks used. This might be one of my favorite yet!

Birthday Card - Fly Free

Lastly a Gelli Plate collage for a coworker who was leaving.

Spring POP Mixed Media

Spring POP Heart

I was inspired by the May Gauche Alchemy mood inspiration board to do something mixed media and BRIGHT. The mood board looks like this:

I ended up making two canvases I was so inspired. The first one i glued a ton of wood buttons on the canvas, gesso'd then painted with neon acrylic colors. The heart is made with Crackle medium and Dylusions ink spray.

Spring POP Heart macro

It's pretty amazing affect the ink and the crackle created - looks like a broken pink mirror!

Spring POP Flower

This second project is good old fashioned paper collage. 

Spring POP Flower Marco

The background paper i bought in a scrap paper bag many years ago and there was just enough to cut into all the little squares and glue on the canvas! The flower is cut out of good old black cardstock.
