Can't stop printing!

Hi there Ingrid here. This is a continuation of my last facebook post. Can you believe it? I'm still printing away like a mad woman. That's how much I enjoy this process. My brain always is desperately seeking novelty so this fits the bill. Unfortunately I've had to rough it with homemade gelatin printing plates so far. Poor Jean keeps getting harassed by me about when my gelli printing plate order is coming! Sorry Jean! Anyway I have some more prints to share with you.

 Some jute cord laid down in a random fashion over some cheap old craft paint. Not so great but...

 ...when the cord was pulled off and printed again, a ghost print was made revealing a whole lot more detail. That's a little better.

Here are two ghost prints, blue and orange superimposed. I like this one even better.

This was made with different sized circles: some were cutout masks and some were bottle cap imprints. To give it more dimension, some circles were highlighted with water soluble crayons afterward.

This one started out with yellow paint with feather masks on top and printed. Then blue paint was added and stamped into with lace rubber stamps and printed again.

Ghost print of red violet feathers with quinacridone azo gold over the top and burlap pressed into that and printed. BTW, the white areas that you see are where the cracks and gouges have formed in the gelatin. Annoying. I will have to go in and add some ink, paint or crayon.

Thanks for looking! I hope I didn't overdo this post.


  1. Wow, Ingrid! You did all of these without a Gelli plate?! Just wait until you get'll NEVER want to stop! Thanks for stopping by Artventuring, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you'll create with all of your gorgeous papers.

  2. Not overdone at all, Ingrid--I can't wait 'til my plate gets here, so I can try all these!


    1. (Because I'm too lazy to make my own plate, even though I know how, and have ALL the stuff--including a brand new pan bought just for the occasion!)

  3. Your papers and your photos of them are so exciting! Keep it up, girl. Ww want to see more of your results. How inspiring!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
