Yo yo bear blog followers. It's the Podge here, I've been playing with the Gelli plate today, it's such fun.
I pressed a bottle cap into the painted plate, for a groovesome effect.
In our cupboard of plenty we had a stash of paper bags, which we'd been meaning to make into a paper bag book, I thought it was time to use some. This is the first one pressed into the plate.
I then decided to try a masking technique I'd seen on various Internet pages. First, I inked up a stamp
And did the usual bear style stamping,
Onto a post-it note.
I cut post it note image out and then stamped the image directly onto the paper bag, then added the mask over the top.
I pressed the masked bag onto my painted Gelli plate.
When the mask was removed, it left a perfect, unspoilt impression of the stamp.
The next step was probably the most important for a bear as important as me - posing beside my Gelli bags!
I decided my book would be full of quotes, and found these letters to fix to the first page.
Using a hole punch and book rings, I fashioned the bags into a book, just like magic, what a clever bear I am!
Now to find some quotes, I wonder if there are any about gorgeous, clever bears?
