A bit of a departure for me in my blog post today. I apologize if this direction isn't what you've come to expect to find on Paper Seedlings. But, please bear with me.

Besides cardmaking and all things Stampin' Up!. 
I find myself drawn more and more to Gelli Plate Printing.

All of the prints in this post are small -- they are all made on my 3" x 5" GelliArts Plate. 

After a day of printing, I trim the ones that I consider a success -- 
remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. 
These may not appeal to all viewers, but they do touch my own heart.

The prints that I am most proud of I temporarily mount into a small 
(Tim Holtz) 2-ring binder. 
It is so much fun to flip through these prints, and see how my skill level evolves.

I exclusively use acrylic paints, both in liquid and tube format, 
while some Gelli artists have been experimenting with lots of other media. 
Until I get bored, I am sticking with my acrylics.

Some of these prints are so many layers of paint that I lose track of how many exactly. 
Sometimes, after only a few layers, I am satisfied with the more simplified results. 
I love the way previous layers show through.

I like -- only at times though -- to add metallic acrylics to a layer here and there. 
The metallic flavor is a welcome change of direction 
from the flatter effect of non-metallic paints.

I have done other posts about my Gelli Printing experience. They can be referenced HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. 

Please, if you prefer I just stick to cardmaking and Stampin' Up!, let me know in the comments. I just thought you might like to learn a little bit more about my other great passion.
