THE Gelli Plate!

I pulled out my Gelli Plate today and played around with it.  The videos that I watched sure made it look easy.  I found that it required some organization skills that I didn't seem to manage. I didn't know which stencils I was going to use and I found myself digging for the right stencil while the paint was drying.  I think that I need to be more prepared with my tools before I start and be a little more daring in trying new prints.  I worried too much about putting on another layer for fear of ruining the layer that I already had.  Anyway, these are my results, which I think are very pretty:

The prints that look like roses are from a stamp I made with "Marshmallow Foam Shapes"  found at Micheal's craft stores.  You heat them up with a heat tool, press them into something with a pattern on it and Bingo, instant stamp.  There is a tutorial of how to do this HERE.

I used this paper clip (also found at Michael's) to get the impression, which looks like a rose to me.
