Gelli labels

I've been having fun this week with labels on the gelli-plate. You know when you've used a few labels and then have a partial sheet that you can't put easily through the printer? Well, everything is gelli-fodder in this studio, so on to the plate they went.

This page is made with some of those labels, some washi tape, and a smearing of paint.

The bigger labels - the whole width of an A4 sheet of paper - are great for punching out of, too, especially as they are self-adhesive.

Above is the beginning of a page with some printed labels, and some other labels. I used some Golden acrylics and a squirt of Brusho watercolour. I like the non-uniform effect where the water-based colour doesn't adhere so well to the plate. It looks great once you peel off the labels so the colours are in smaller patches.
