One of our art quilting friends had us over to show us how to do gelli plate printing on fabric. Here is a video of the process => http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AfzYHz48rs
I used one of my friends tree templates and printed it once on fabric and then when I lifted up the template I noticed that under the template there was some really cool texture (for the tree bark) that was created by removing the template. I laid down another piece of fabric over the gelli plate and printed it. I just love the effect.
Later I cut out just the tree trunk and fused it to some dark blue batik fabric. I then added borders and mounted the finish product on some stretcher frames.
It was a fun gelli plate printing party and I love the results. I plan to do some more gelli plate printing.
