The first picture is of some stickers-dots, labels, address stickers, and hole reinforcements. The third picture is pages in a couple of catalogs that I am turning into art Journals.
I am finally at the stage where I can make signatures out of these and bind them into 2 journals.
The prints below except for the first 4 are on the backs of some of my earlier prints. I am planning to use these as signatures in an art journal or two. Some of my paper is 8 1/2 x 11, and some is 8 1/2 x 14. So my plan is to make one journal out of each size. I still have to print on the back of most of my 8 1/2 x 11 sheets so I need at least one more session to get this project into the construction phase. The first picture is the front and back of a catalog that I intend to print my way through and then use as an art journal. The second and third pictures are of the front and back of a mailing envelope that I intend to use as the cover for the journal made out of the 8 1/2 x 11 paper. The fourth picture is of some cut down manila file folders to use as inserts in the journals.
These pictures are my favorites out of the session as in the past posts.
It has been 3 1/2 weeks since I first made my homemade Gelli Plate. I have remelted it 4 times and used it about 8 times including the times my daughter used it. It is still not having any mold problems. I do still have issues with it becoming scarred and tearing in places after a long session. The good news is that when I remelt it, it is as good as new. Below are two pictures the one on the left is the plate after the first remelt. The one on the right is after the 4th remelt and then 1 use. It is darker in color now and has some paint flecks floating inside, but the paint flecks do not seem to mar the surface.
The plate is two weeks old and has not been stored in the refrigerator. No mold and it worked great today. I did get some breakdown in the surface, so I will melt and reform it before I play again. So far so good. I did like the smaller size better. I think I am going to make some even smaller to play with next time, and see what I think.
