Documented Life Project March 7 (Week #10) Using a Mini 3x5 Gelli Plate as a Stamp!

The Documented Life Project Challenge for this week is:

March Theme
Making Your Mark (Doodles & Mark Making)
March 7
Art Challenge: As a Layer Element
Journal Prompt: Surviving the Elements

A couple of weeks ago, I visited my local mixed media retailer. As soon as I walked into the store, I spotted this mini 3x5 Gelli Plate. It was the very last one and it had my name on it. The size was PERFECT for "on-the-go" printmaking. As I was paying for my treasure, the lady at the counter asked me what I was going to use my mini Gelli plate for. I told her that I LOVED the convenience of it's size and that I wanted to include it in my art journal kit. She then proceeded to give me a "mini" art lesson on all the wonderful things that I could do with my new art tool. She even mentioned that I could "STAMP" with it. WHAT??? Stamp with a Gelli plate??? TOTALLY SOLD!
