Large Gelli prints using a small Gelli plate

I got a 6x6 inch Gelli plate the other day.  After a lovely time experimenting with small cute prints (I will post in a separate post) I had a brainwave and thought. ."what if I could make a large image using it like a stamp to make large textures all over" so here goes the results!
First I layered up the background using lots of texture but in  subtle way: ghost prints of stencils and leaves,  feathers and doilies.  I then added detailed shapes using hand cut stencils of plant forms and birds.  Once this was all dry I did my usual of drawing into them using paint pens and gel pens. 
Do you like the results?
