pretty little packages ..

tied up with string...

My daughter left last week for 2 months as an exchange student in Holland.
 I wanted her to have a few little bits and pieces on hand to say 'thank you' with an Aussie feel. I purchased some lemon myrtle soap - then grabbed the gelli plate.

I wasn't thinking about patterns or shapes - just the colours, mood and feel of the bush when i've wandered through it. The light is bright, the texture of the bark and gum trees..
 i printed layers on several sheets.. here's how it went..
i made some 'marks' with black crayon on white paper..

I scribbled text and scrawled..

i stamped some hand made foam + rubber stamps

I was thinking sticky bark sap..

then i cut into wide strips.. and it was .. a wrap.. :)

Oh what beautiful wraps! I love the scribbles and lines you add to your gelli prints! And they worked beautifully as soap wraps. And how exciting your daughter heading to Holland. I hope she has a wonderful time.

I am new to your blog but I'm already amazed by the few prints I've seen so far. Your work is beautiful and original. I too really like the scribbles and lines you added. I would never have thought of that. Thanks for the inspiration. Your work is awesome!
