Two Trees Monoprint - Berry71Bleu


Hi! I'm sharing my "Two Trees" monoprint that I created for Marivic's "Autumn is in the Air" October Challenge for Berry71Bleu today. I created this print with a Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate and Speedball Block Printing Ink.


I used my favorite stencils and masks along with the ink to create my patterned layers. I really love the vibrant color of the Speedball inks! I've decided to frame this piece as-is. I'll be sharing a full tutorial for how to create a similar monoprint and another project later this week, so please stop by again!

We love gelatin printing and we've developed a better way to do it!

Our Gel Printing Plate looks and feels like gelatin, but is durable, reusable and stores at room temperature. It's easy to clean and always ready for printing. Monoprinting on a Gelli plate is simple and fun. The gratification is immediate, and the prints are too cool!
