Joanna Grant... Mixed Media Art with Recycled Materials Again, I am using my 5.5 X 8 Strathmore mixed media journal. In the first photo, Ive just glued into the journal one of my bazillions of Gelli plate printed papers and trimmed away the excess.
I have taken the 8.5" X 11" gelli-printed typing paper and glued them into my Strathmore Mixed Media journal (5.5" X 8") so that they can be the bases for future journal pages. The scraps trimmed away from the journal page have been kept to be used as well.
I thought you might like to see how easily you can use all those Gelli Plate printed papers in simple art journal pages. I am using my Strathmore Mixed Media art journal (5.5" X 8"). First I took one of my gelli printed papers and glued it onto a page in my art journal, using a gluestick. I just ripped the excess paper from the edges and left it rough looking and unfinished (although that doesn't show in the photo below).
