I thought I would provide some additional photos of the container that I collaged with the variegated arrow papers (as well as some other gelli prints that I have).
I bought this container at the thift store for a couple bucks. It is supposed to be for holding silverware, but I thought it would make a great brush and pen holder.
I only collaged the outside, leaving the interior lime green. I put a coat of gesso on the outside, as my gelli prints on deli paper are somewhat translucent.
Here are a bunch of different gelli prints I used. I cut them into strips with my paper cutter, then cut then into rectangles and squares with scissors.
Here is my finished container!
