Recent work with the Gelli plate

These are some pieces based on Gelli prints. On this first one, I added some Zentangle-inspired art with a white gel pen, using stencils from Joggles.

Gelli print with ZIA

I cut up some Gelli prints to make collage elements, and added some drawing with a black Micron pen and a Sakura white gel pen.

Gelli Collage

And here's another one where I cut and layered circles from other Gelli prints.

Recent work with Joggles Stencils

In this drawing, I traced an image from a Joggles stencil with a Micron pen, and added some tangling and some colour with a blue coloured pencil.

ZIA with Joggles stencil

I really like this design, so I added it to this canvas bag, using a Pentel Gel Roller for Fabric.

Recent work – Flip Flower

This is a flip flower inspired by Helen Williams' book Flips Folds Ribbon and String. I highly recommend this book...
