Collage A La Gelli

While exploring some mark making techniques with the gelli plate, I decided to take some shots of sections of the 20″ x 28″ pages I was working on with the hopes that I might make some cards of portions of these images.  I got to playing on ribbet photo editor doing some photo editing and watermarking and these resulting collages came out of it.  Another way to think about using your own work in different ways. The first photo is the original shot.  Some of these might make great t-shirts, that’s what was running through my mind and the last one, well, thats for all my mail art buds.  Thanks to Maria MGuire for sending me off to ribbet, it is the easiest ever to use.  Sometimes non thinking works best.

    Just amazing manipulation of color, Corrine! I need to checkout ribbet, too! I think I have finally made the decision to buy the 8×10 Gelli Plate, just haven’t done it yet. My interest is definitely piqued by what I see here!

    What a way to change how it looks! I never ever would have guessed where the altered ones started- what a way to get oodles of bang out of your art! Love it! Thanks for the shout out- can’t wait for class to start!

    I agree…would be great on a t-shirt. I love seeing how different area “pop” when the colors change. It’s so fun to play with images that way. Hope your week is off to a great start!
