Gelli-Plate Prints

So this past week I received an order of small stencils from Balzer Designs and I got out my Gelli-plate and went to town!

I am not very good at mixing colors so I am really trying to get out of my comfort zone and work with colors I am not completely comfortable with.

I don't think under normal circumstances I would choose to put these two colors together (Mint green and orange/yellow) but I really do like the outcome.

The "Chevron" stencil seems to be really big right now...  I am still not completely sold on it though.

This "Aboriginal" stencil I adore!  I love the way the colors came out with this stencil and I am really glad I purchased it.
When I first used the Gelli-plate I was a little intimidated because I didn't immediately know the outcome... I am not very good with abstract or mixing color (as stated earlier)... so this was all a bit uncomfortable for me.
Then... once I got into it... I printed off more and more and more prints. 
I now have more prints than I know what to do with!  However, I have tipped some pages into my art journals (See first photo) and they make lovely colorful pages in my journal.
Do you have a gelli-plate?  What do you like about it?  What do you not like about it?
I like the "Easy" factor.  It is rather simple to use and highly diversified... you can create many different prints with this lovely little invention.  It is also easy to clean up afterwards and that right there sells me on it!
Thanks Gelli-Arts!
Praying your week is highly colorful and bright, full of sunshine.

These look awesome! I love my gelliplate for easy fun creativity I don't have to think much about. And it doesn't take much time!

I just love my gelli plate and have some of the same stencil. They make for instant fun. I love doing prints on tissue paper. I also like layer prints over pages I thought were done. The layer on layer of color gives such dimension.
