Misty Morning Mauve

Another botanical Gelli Plate print, has been finished into a small wall hanging. I added layers of paint with stencils, sequin waste, and raw edge applique. The border fabric was one piece that graduated from pink to dark burgundy, when it was cut in squares, and rearranged it made a nice blended combination of fabrics. I really like the wispy, calm feel to these prints, they are very delicate. The addition of thread painted dragonflies, gives them a focus. See previous posts on the painting, printing & stencils for this technique. I've posted this on Nina Marie's Off The Wall Friday Click Here to Check out all these wonderfully creative people!


  1. WOW!!! This is've got this technique down pat!

    Also....I tried emailing you from your comment on my blog but it bounced saying you are set up as a 'no reply blogger' hopefully this answer to your question will find its way to you.

    Hi Amy,
    Thank you for your note.....Here's an answer to your question, which may have come from perhaps seeing not the true color on the computer monitor

    The ends of the pine needles are left natural....a sort of brownish/black color coating that holds the(usually 3) sections of the needles together at the base.

  2. I don't mean to be a no reply blogger, if anyone has advice on how to change that -- let me know, I'll check it out anyway. AMY

  3. Beautiful work! I bought a geli plate in Houston and now I really want to try it.
