Art Journal Challenge: Gelly plate

Good morning!
It's a beautiful morning here... a start to a HOT week coming up!
I'll be happy to be out of the extreme heat of next weekend!
Enough about the weather.
Today the challenge was Gel Plate.
I am very new to using the gel plate, but I'm doing my best to be fearless.
What did I take from this challenge?
Less is more when it comes to the gel plate.
You see what I mean?
Holy paint and stencils and craziness batman!
But I went with it anyways.
Here is how the page started.
I've been slapping excess pain onto the next page each day.
And it looks like the paint didn't dry enough before I shut the book
so the ripping in the middle. 
But that never really bothers me!
I just got to it! 
I had some Lindy's stamp Gang sprays out on my table, 
So I slapped some gesso on the gel plate, and covered that with a stencil, and then the sprays.
The result is pretty cool. 
Obviously some of these got used, and some will be other things I guess!
But yummy! I mean the possibilities!
I got down to arranging, 
And the verse is hand stamped again.
I am embracing my stamping imperfections! 
The bird is from Dina Wakley's like of stamps, and I need to find a few that seem to have flown away!
She is a cute little bird!
The verse is just a part of Isaiah 41:13
The final addition was the wash tape along the edge and the top.
I think possibly I need more black, but for now I'm gonna say its done. 

I was working on a youtube video of my bullet journal last night 
(YES I'm one of those!)
But I ran out of memory on my phone, so there may be a camcorder or camera purchase in the near future.
God has been pushing me into this youtube world for a while, and I have been resisting.
What am I scared of? 
God promises he will help me! 

Have a blessed day!

  1. Maybe you're so busy with your art, you've not blogged in awhile? I'm out visiting folks today on my reading list that I've not seen in awhile. Hope you're doing well. I love the mix of colors and whatever you do with them will be great.
