It's Already Spring Somewhere...

So here's a journal page background that I'm calling Ivy on a Trellis, followed by another journal page background (with a built-in frame) that I titled with the same name as the stencil that made it, Boxed Vines:

The original Boxed Vines stencil (9"x12") used in the bottom image looks like this ...

... and the top background-page was made with these 2 9"x12" stencils ...

Above:  IVY 9 stencil
Above:  PRAYER FLAGS stencil

 Both pages were made with multiple, layered Gelli Plate prints.  To tone them down for use as backgrounds, I gave each a topcoat of diluted Titan Buff acrylic paint with a sponge brayer.

Last but not least, I used my 6"x6" stencil Flowers Version 1 to make this greeting card cover:

It was a two-step process, first using a Gelli Plate to print the flowers on cardstock, and second, over-printing the whole surface with green-gold acrylic paint (also using the Gelli Plate.)
The Flowers Version 1 stencil itself looks like this:
Thanks for visiting!
