Journal # 3 ~ Gelli Covered Sketchbook

MarveLes Art StudiosBlogs, Mixing It Up 4 Comments

Hello sweet friends ~

This is a sketchbook I had purchased quite a while ago, which is hardbound.  And so I thought I would cover it also, using those beautiful gelli printed papers.  The detail photo below is from the front page.  OF course, I have used some black rub-ons, thermofax screens, stencils, doodles, stamps and the ranger perfect pearls paints on this one as well:

 The front cover:

 I’ve embellished with the perfect pearls paints in blue, and then added a black print from a couple of new stamps I’ve carved:

  {I do really love the dimensional look of the perfect pearls paint}  Surprise!  {not really, I know!}

 Front inside cover: 

I added some black doodles with my sharpie pen, and another image from a stamp I carved:

 Detail of the back page inside cover:


  I really like this piece of gelli-printed paper — it’s actually my favorite of the four gelli-printed and screened papers I used to cover this journal  which made it’s way to the inside of the the back cover:

I don’t think I will ever tire of blue and yellow together {it was also my high school’s colors}!

And… I will never tire of adding beautiful swirly designs from thermofax screens either!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a good one wherever you are.

  1. I redid google reader and the last post that the new and redone blog roll lists Minkee as your last post. Something isn't working.

  2. Hi Leslie! Even though you were still in my Google Reader, I have not been getting your posts so I had to come check out your blog to see if you've been posting. You have and I've been missing out! I deleted you out of Reader and added you back in by clicking the Followers on your site. Hopefully, that will fix it.

    Anyway, I had to see what you've been up to and it looks like you've been creating more beautiful and colorful works. I love it all!

    Have a gorgeous day,

  3. My whole house is blue & yellow (with some white thrown in). Love that combination — it always reminds me of spring for some reason. Question: Just finished a spring wallhanging with a little bird who needs a black eye(well, you know what I mean). I'm thinking your pearl paint would work. Is it hard to do just one little drop? I know – practice, practice, practice.
