Try, Try Again

One day last week while my daughter was here visiting she wanted to paint. We got out some canvases and she got to work copying a picture she had saved on her computer. I decided to play with my Geli plate. I had this brilliant idea to use fall grasses as a mask. And, I tried doing this right on a canvas. Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures of the process. It is quite messy as the seedy parts of the grasses rolled all over the plate and then the canvas. Once I got the background, I made a tissue paper tree. Added fall foliage and a quote. I made the pumpkins from a Gelli background paper.  To be honest, I am not totally in love with this. The colors did not come out as I imagined. I did have fun trying Gelli on canvas and might have to try again.

I am linking this to October's Geli Print Party.
