I will also cover how to make your own stamps and stencils to use for printing.
If you own a commercial "Gelli Plate" please bring it to class. I will have small commercial plates and plates to share. Optional to bring some acrylic paint in colors you would like to work with and any of your favorite stencils and texture materials ex: bubble wrap, lace...
