Collage A La Gelli

8 Flares 8 Flares ×

While exploring some mark making techniques with the gelli plate, I decided to take some shots of sections of the 20″ x 28″ pages I was working on with the hopes that I might make some cards of portions of these images.  I got to playing on ribbet photo editor doing some photo editing and watermarking and these resulting collages came out of it.  Another way to think about using your own work in different ways. The first photo is the original shot.  Some of these might make great t-shirts, that’s what was running through my mind and the last one, well, thats for all my mail art buds.  Thanks to Maria MGuire for sending me off to ribbet, it is the easiest ever to use.  Sometimes non thinking works best.
