Saturday was the May meeting of the Colorado Mixed Media Club. May is a pretty hectic month, so we did gelli printing with stencils, which we've played with before. This time, we made our own stencils using a thin graphic (mylar type) film, and made prints using a Gelli plate and open acylic paints.
Here are a bunch of Sabyl's stencils

My print with my face stencil. I printed this on some canvas paper that already had paint on it.

We had a good time, and I want to make some more stencils. The film we used was easy to cut, because it was very thin.
