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.

 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.
