Breaking out with the gelli plate

 It has been a while since I have done two posts in the same day, life has really been busy.  Who would have thought the gelli plate could be this much fun.  It very rarely disappoints me in my "what if" moods.  Instead of applying my paint with a brayer I decided this morning to apply it with my hands.  I suggest that if you are going to try this to be sure and use a "flow extender", this will keep the paint wetter as you manipulate it with your fingers.  I used "Golden" Acrylic Flow Release. approx 1 part to 1 part.  I used two colors parchment by Ceramcoat Delta and Chateau Moss by Accent.  I pulled on tissue paper.  I love the mountains and valleys that pulled out.
This is the second pull.  On the mornings I am not sure what direction I am going to go, this helps to stimulate my creative process, a little morning exercise for my muse, lol.  It is almost too hot to think or create but I am hanging in there and moving slow.  Happy Sunday, hugs
