AGT: Gelli Printed Peony – Three Ways

My third tutorial for Donna Downey’s Artist Gang was posted yesterday. I tried to escape making cards, but one of the three ways I used Donna’s Big Peony Blossom stencil was for cards.

First, I spent about an hour making a bunch of gelli prints with the stencil. After sorting them into two piles (one pretty and one not so pretty, or not as pretty), I made card fronts with the pretty half and cut several of the others into circles for a Kandinsky inspired journal page. Finally, I picked one of my favorite prints that was printed on two pages of book text and highlighted it on a journal page. The tutorial for that page is up on my personal YouTube channel.

I love that I have the opportunity to inspire others as a member of donna’s gang! 🙂 If you create something that is inspired by my tutorial, tag me on Instagram (@nicolewatsonart), post below, or in the donna downey: community of artists facebook group so I can see it!

My second tutorial for Donna Downey’s Artist Gang was posted today. I decided to do another card one!
