Gel Monoprinting - I'm in love!

Oh boy.  There is nothing better than new art supplies.  Today a Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate arrived at my door and my daughter and I had a good time experimenting.  I think we're going to have a lot of fun with this one!

First you add some acrylic paint to the gel plate

then you use a brayer to spread it out

                                 then you draw on it using anything you can find that isn't sharp

              Then you press a piece of cardstock down onto the image and Viola!  A monoprint!
 Here is one I was had to do quickly because Mia wanted to make more.....this is addictive!
