Gelli Plate - Art Orphan Paper Pack

Recently I participated in the Big Deal Blog Hop and shared the details on how to create your own paper pack on my CapeScrapper Blog.  Using Bookbinding, Padding and Laminating Glue and a stack of art orphans, created using my Gelli Plate, I now have a paper pack of artsy goodness.

Today I want to share how I created one of these papers in more detail.

Step 1. Squirt a few dots of red acrylic paint onto your Gelli Plate and roll on with a rubber brayer.

Step 2. Use the Big Deal tiny suits stamp from the Art Nouveau UM sheet to remove some of the red paint by dabbing it randomly over the wet painted surface.

Step 3. Place a sheet of plain white paper down onto the stamped Gelli Plate and remove.

Step 4. Wipe your Gelli plate clean between paint applications. Add dots of gold paint to the plate and roll flat with the brayer.  Lay a stencil (Full Circle 2012) on top of the wet paint and remove to the red painted paper. With another sheet of paper over the top of the wet stencil, burnish down onto red painted paper.

Step 5. Lay down a Masking stencil (Tahiti 2012) directly onto clean Gelli Plate. Add dots of white acrylic paint and roll on over the stencil.

Step 6. Carefully remove the stencil.

Step 7. Lay down the gold and red paper panel onto the wet white acrylic paint and burnish.

Step 8. Remove the paper to reveal the image.

Step 9. Stamp over the finished piece using the same Big Deal tiny suits Art Nouveau stamp and a checked stamp from the Concrete Playground 2010 Crafter Classic stamp set.

You can achieve so many different looks each time.

I made this card using a portion of the art orphan, a Take Wing red panel, Watercolor Blossoms "thinking of you" sentiment, and Big Deal brads.

Here are some of the other papers I created using a variety of stamps, stencils, masks, and paints.

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a creative weekend.
