Gelli Printing fun

When I bought my house, I 'inherited' a bedside table, which matches the built in wardrobes.  I have never liked it much, so I decided to brighten it up a bit. I took a colour pallette of turquoise/teal with golds/yellow as contrast, and used stencils, masks and bubble wrap to make Gelli prints.

I arranged the prints on top of the bedside table, glued them down, and painted the edges of the top with blue fluid acrylic. I laid glass over the top for durability, and changed the little brass knobs for bubbly turquoise glass ones.  A much improved piece of furniture already. I may yet paint the drawer fronts and carcase turquoise, let's see how I feel in a month or two!
