Fall Greetings with Gelli Prints

Hi Everyone it's Danie here today creating some greeting cards for Fall, using Gelli Prints as my background papers and collage sheets from Altered Pages.



After collecting items that were fall themed, I started by die cutting out some leaves out of cardstock off cuts to use as masks on my Gelli Plate to create Autumn themed papers.



The first layer of my Gelli Prints were simply a combination of yellow oxide and burnt umber acrylic paint spread across the plate.  My second layer was a mix of yellow, orange and red paint and I placed the die cut leaves down as masks before taking the print.




This resulted in the above prints and the die cut leaves now being colored with autumn tones.




My papers I teamed with orange, red and yellow cardstock bases, and sentiments from the Falling for Fall Collage Sheet, some natural trims (also available at Altered Pages) and some of my now colored leaves as embellishments.
