On this number 2 try with my Gelli plate, I used a bit more colours, as you can see,
and therefore my collage was also very much more coloured than I 
normally do!!

Here a close up of the part with the Gelli print.

And those 2 photoes shows the sheets before I cut into the one on top!
I used stensils this time, and tried a feather ,too.

Here the whole collage,- truly outside my comfort zone with all those colours!

But I kind of had to add the heavy cotton background, and then
to create the flower with almost equal amount of colours!

To wish you a beautiful week I want to show you this sweet fellow, living inside the stach of my
husbonds chopped wood, isen`t it just cute?
Well we know it will grow, and later eat our salat and greenery in
the vegetable garden , not so sweet then!!!

Can you see the sun??? Yes it is here, so I send you all lots of
sunny hugs ,and love ,too, thanking for all your wonderful comments on my last post!!!
Smiles, Dorthe

Dorthe, this is gorgeous! It is really good to see you using colour in such a beautiful way. I love the image you have chosen and the background fabric, and the flower, everything goes so well together. Your gelli printing is amazing.

Oh Dorthe this looks amazing! It is very different from your usual work but I think it is great how you are exploring different techniques. Love how you have put all these colourful elements together and the Gelli print background looks amazing! Such a creative piece!!

Junibears said...

Dorthe thank you so much for your most welcome comment on my blog. I really appreciate it. I have long been a (silent I'm afraid) admirer of your wonderful work! I adore your dolls and angels. You are so talented.
Sending hugs and smiles

Здравей Дороти, много интересен колаж си направила. Харесват ми цветовете, наистина са по-различни от обикновено.Чудесна работа.
Поздрави и хубава седмица от мен.

Bente said...

Hei Dorthe. For en kunstner du er. Helt nydelig.
Kaninene er jo så søte, men er nok en plage også, vil jeg tro.

Ha ei fin uke videre.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Dorthe, Your design is incredible. You certainly make it look like you have done this style forever and not out of your comfort zone as you say. I love all the elements. You are such a gifted and talented artist. God has shown favor upon you.

Love the little bunny living in your wood pile. Glad to see the sun visiting you too.
Happy Creating.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Hi Dorthe,

And the bunny:it's adorable.Such a cute little crature.



~*~Patty S said...

Your little gray rabbit does look cute...his brown cousin here in Virginia is eating my Columbine already ;)

Your gelli printing is wonderful and better than that is what you do with the gelli prints dear Dorthe...
this piece has great depth and beauty ...
it is a good stretch to go outside our comfort zone sometimes ...
I salute you!

Enjoy the sunshine dear one ... we are having a few days of rain which is helping tame the pollen from so many pretty flowers blooming ♥

Bettina Breiding Hansen said...

Kære Dorthe - jeg prøver igen - It is so beautiful. I just love the prints!!!
Hope this comment reach you dear friend!!

Just catching up from being away. Love your use of color in this piece. You are having some fun with your gelli plate too I see. What a sweet bunny, love to see them in the wild. xox

Emilie said...

Kære Dorthe.

Hvor er din nyeste kreation flot!
Som du selv nævner, så er alle farverne helt anderledes end de kreationer, du plejer at skabe, men det gør den ikke mindre flot. Du mestrer jo også farverige kreationer. :-) Og nogle gange er det jo godt at komme lidt uden for sin 'comfort zone'.

Sikken en sød hare. Den nyder også forårssolen. Nu håber jeg virkelig, at foråret bider sig fast.

Fortsat god uge til dig.
Knus, Emilie

Paula said...

Hello sweetheart Dorthe, Your collage is beautiful, as always my sweet friend! I love the adorable little bunny! It looks like a pet! So sweet! I am glad you are enjoying sunny days dear heart! Much love and hugs to you my dear friend! Paula xo

Kimberly at ArtJoyStuff said...

Hello Dorthe, dear,
I love your color play, just beautiful! I have been finding myself playing with color more lately too, it is nice to change things up from time to time. That bunny is too sweet. We have herds of deer in our neighborhood, and you should see the amount of destruction that they can cause, but I am happy to have such beautiful animals to enJOY.
hugs and JOY my friend,

morkaren said...

Kære Dorte, allerførst tusind tak for dine venlige kommentarer til mit "kvindealbum" det glæder mig meget at nogen læser og kommenterer hos mig, og så til din collage, jeg syntes den er flot og farverig, i den senere tid har du lavet mange ting der "smager" lidt af scrap og måske ikke så mange dukker, som ellers er dit speciale, men det er sjovt at følge med i hvad andre laver, og du er meget kreativ. knus morkaren.

Hello Dear Dorthe!

Your Gelli plate art pieces looks fantastic! What an interesting way to make totally something new just with paper, paint and that magical Gelli plate. I sure would like to try it too...

I love that little bunny!! It looks just like Beatrix Potter´s Peter rabbit :-))

Hugs Minnamarika

The colours may be new for you, but I think they work beautifully... the whole piece is so Pre-Raphaelite, starting with that lovely image, but also the colours and designs... the Gelli plate results you are getting are stunning!

Suztats said...

Such a cute little bunny! (for now, eh?) and your collage is beautiful. How I want a gelli plate!

sharon said...

Yes, my friend, it is different from your usual, but that is good to test new waters and discover new things about ourselves, and I think whatever you do with art turns to gold my dear, as well as this, it is pure magic in color! Great job Dorthe!
Can you keep the bunny please??!!! He is sooo cute! Hugs to you sweetie, I am thinking of you always, much love to you.

junemac2 said...

Hugs June xxx

Alisa Noble said...

Very cool, Dorthe! I like that you tried the feather and how it came out.

I have a baby bunny in my garden too and it's already eaten several of my flowers!

Caterina Giglio said...

Oh my I love your gelli prints... just wonderful and so good to break out and try new things eh?

Robin said...

This Gelli print piece is gorgeous Dorthe! And that little rabbit is so cute. Have a great week.


Createology said...

Looks delightful and shows that you are magical at everything you create. Adorable little bunny. He will need a lot of salad to grow big and strong...

Terri said...

Oh yes! Very pretty! You are having so much fun with your new toy : ) The collage you made with your new paper is so pretty. I loved the softer color of your last post, and I love this new venture into color as well. I love both!
I have bunnies running in my back yard too. I think they ate all my newest plants. : (
Anyways, I am happy to see you have some sun! Yay!

Dorthe-- the colors are just gorgeous here! I think this is going to be a great new crafting process for you-- I think there is nothing you can't do--- beautifully:)


Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

I love how you try new things, Dorthe! Lovely!

Mom E. said...

It is so beautiful! I have a hard time making things that are out of my comfort zone, as well. All my creations are pretty much obviously mine! I am not very diverse, I guess, but I am trying to learn! So good work out of your comfort zone! Everything you create is beautiful to me!

Unknown said...

Hi, Dorthe - I am a friend of Tanya's, and she's told me just how wonderfully creative you are. Looks like you and I have a lot of the same loves with the fibers and textiles. Beautiful pieces - I'm going to have fun looking back over your older posts. In the meantime, Happy Mother's Day - Carole

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

Hello dearest Dorthe, You've created an amazing background with the gelli print. It turned out just great and I admire it, even though these are not my colors at all. I can imagine that working with them was out of your comfort zone.
The bunny is such a cutie. It's a shame that sweet animals can create such a mess in the garden.
Have a wonderful weekend, sweet friend! I'll email you next week.
Mange kys og knus,
