A Vintage Journey: Destination Inspiration – Gelli Distress

©Bob Pennycook - Gelli landscape monoprints - I use a lot of brushes - one brush for every color, and I don't rinse or wash the brushes until I'm finished with the print. The only other tools I use are shishkabob skewers to create caligraphic marks (and to scratch back into shape an over-sized blob of color), and old credit cards for fine lines.

In this clip from Art Journaling 5 - Mix Up The Media , Kate Crane shows how easy it is to design a stencil, cut it out using the Gryo-Cut tool, then use a gel plate and acrylic paint to print the design onto her work. - Art Journaling 5 - Mix Up The Media - YouTube

maskingtape2 -- Next, and this one did work, I tried an old technique – covering cardstock with masking tape, then pulling the print over that. Really liked that effect. I smudged over paint to give the uniform background then pulled the print on top. -- Scrappystickyinkymess

Have you fallen in love with Gelli Plate printing yet? I have, and I'm just loving all the different results you can get! Different patterns, textures, colours, no two are ever the same! Experimenting with different techniques is so much fun! I like to use my Gelli Plate prints as backgrounds for my cards. Once the print is dry I add stamped images, textures, etc and then embellish over the top of that with other images and words or quotes etc. -- Inkurable Artistry

You can easily add layers of patterns and colour, but I decided to keep my prints pretty simple this time, since I was planning to add stamping on top. I picked out some of my favourite prints, in all the three colours and die cut with Tim Holtz ATC & Corners die. For the covers, I used mat board. I have a lot of left-over papers for another project.. Layers of ink: Dotty Gelli Print ATC Book

Gelli Bound Class Sample - I had a truly inspiring teaching experience this month with another Gelli Print offering at My Heart’s Fancy. This class was called Gelli Bound and my students learned new ways to create Gelli Plate monoprints, which we then used to make three little journals and a box to hold them in.

What do you do with your Gelli Prints? Well mine are in stacks all over the place. Some of them I like, and others I don't. But I have been watching a lot you-tube video's on Gelli Plate printing. So I decided to make some super simple envelopes with some of my prints. Envelope #1 -- using the Balzer Designs "Chunky Chevron" stencil

Nordljus: Stitching it all together. So here's my finished little journal. I'm not quite sure yet what I'll be using it for. Not for painting, but maybe for noting down quotations and special memories and such. And I'll definitely be making more journals.
