Hello! Giovanna here
with my first post as a Gelli Arts® artist. Did you know that Gelli Arts® can help you be fashionable? Do you want to protect your clothes while creating, at
home or during a workshop, in style?
This is a super easy project to make — and
the result is stunning!
There is a
huge surprise for you at the end of this post!
Start with two pieces
of white cotton 42 x 32 cm (16.5 x 12.6”) size. I used an old sheet.
Put some drops of
acrylic paint on the Gelli Arts® 4’’ Round plate and spread the paint evenly
with a brayer.
Lay your favorite
stencil over the plate, cover it with the cotton fabric and press lightly on the fabric with your hands.
Remove the stencil
and use the Gelli® plate as stamp on the fabric, creating a ghost print.
Repeat until the fabric
is filled up with colors and patterns and you are happy with the result.
Take an elastic band
slightly larger than your wrist and put a safety pin on one edge.
Sew the painted fabric
along the short side leaving an opening large enough for the elastic band to go
Slip the elastic cord
inside the opening. Make sure to hold onto the elastic at both ends and sew along the longest side. And….
So fun and easy to do!
To decorate the apron
use some scraps of white fabric: create some circles and ovals using the mini
oval Gelli Arts® plate with the same technique explained for the protector
sleeves. This time cut out the circles and ovals, and cut them in half.
Pin them to the apron
and sew them using a decorative stitch like a zig zag.
Tip: If you’d like to
wash the protector sleeves and/or the apron add some fabric medium to the
acrylic paints, and iron the painted fabric.
And to celebrate my
first Gelli Arts® blog here’s a GIVEAWAYYY!!!!
