The SOC Purple and Lime Green

A few of my Mixed media friends and I got together to do the gelli plate and transfers. I had so much fun using the gelli plate to make my Summer of Color this week. This one I also used the tape transfer. I like how much color showed up in the transfer. I also used book pages on my gelli plate. I had a hard time finding the right color of purple I liked so I ended up using purple copy paper. 

I like the green color I mixed in this one it is closest to lime green but I still didn't get a very good purple.

This one didn't have any green oops I thought the green spray would work but it looks like yellow. 

This one I got the green right but couldn't get the purple right it's so dark. I really wanted a bright purple. I had no idea it was so hard to make a lovely bright purple. Purple is my favorite color so I was a bit discouraged about this. I'll keep trying to get a better purple or go out and buy one. 

Happy Creating!


  1. So many fabulous layers, it looks like you ha a lot of fun creating with these colours!! :)

  2. So creative and absolutely beautiful! I love how you used this past week's colors!

  3. Hello, Chandra :). These are lovely variations!. Although you didn't get the perfect purple, I think it's great that you got to make all these gorgeous prints :). I still yet to try gelli print, though :). LOVE LOVE them!

  4. Hi Chandra! I really like your tape transfers and smiled at the owl peeking out in your last pic. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes, I make my own stamps. Most recently with sticky back foam cut into shapes and stuck on foam core. The only drawback about making your own gelatin is that it takes up prime real estate in the fridge ;).
    Stay inspired!

  5. These are lovely. I especially love the second one with the music in the background. Beautifully done.
