I've been playing with silhouettes this week. They make great images for gelli plate printing and for journals.
I made a stencil and a mask at the same time by gluing a magazine image onto chipboard and cutting it out with a craft knife. On the left page I applied gesso around the mask, and on the right side I applied gesso through the stencil.
This is a spread in my old book journal. The background is spritzed watercolour through stencils
