2016 #9 Gelli Doodling {by Marta Lapkowska}

2016 Topic 9: Mono Printing

Hello guys,It is so good to be back! It's Marta Lapkowska here today. I am overjoyed that I can share another art inspiration with you. I have to say... this project was in my mind the second I saw the beautiful arty stamps from Lynne Perrella. I adore her stamp style which gives us so much inspiration. 

I created something totally out of my comfort zone... but I enjoyed every minute of the creative process. Gelli printing, stamping and a little bit of doodling is a great combination.

I started my work by creating gelli printing background.

I used Fresco Finish paints Plum, Chalk, Caramel and Copper. Instead of using brayer I used silicone brush. I was very curious how the brush will spread my paint. To be honest it did the job very well. The paints were blending fantastic!

To create some texture on my surface I used texture tool and some stencil.

Gelli printing has endless ways of playing with colour and you never know what you will end up with. This is the main reason why I love gelli printing.

My next step was to stamp the image from LPC34.  I looked carefully on my paper and placed the stamp on my favourite spots.


Lastly I decided to doodle a little and add some colour here and there. At first I wanted to leave the images on the page but then I felt that fussy cutting them will create an illusion of paper dolls.

I hope I encoured you to draw and doodle a bit, it is fun thing to do and so easy. When you have such a wonderful stamp the rest will come to you very easy.

Feel free to watch my VIDEO tutorials here on my YouTube channel. You can also get in touch with my by Facebook, Blog, Instagram andPinterest.

Wishing you a great creative time, Marta x
