Le'ts get creative with Gelli Plate


Hi everyone, it's time to get messy and have fun with a gelli plate. I was able to get three projects out of my monoprint created by the plate. Let's get started, below is a complete Snapguide tutorial on the journal page process. 
When applying the paints to the gelli plate I printed out the pattern on white cardstock, tissue paper, manila tags and kraft paper. So first up is my journal page that I used the tissue paper print. 

Randomly ripping it and then collaged to the journal page started my background. 
Next up I created a card for Father's Day. 
Using the white cardstock I was able to receive a crisp beautiful background. 
The chipboard was embossed with Gold UTEE, 
The last project was a layout for my antique album. 
I used the kraft paper for the base on this one. 
By the time I used the kraft paper on the gelli print there wasn't much left of the paint but it was just the look I was going for. 
I ripped a tag in half and used it in my layout as well. 
Hope you enjoyed this post and you will give this technique a try. No one print is the same that's the fun of it. Happy Creating xoxo Toni
