Gelli Printed Transparent Overlays

It’s been awhile since I had the chance to play with my gelli plate. It’s one of those things that when you start to play with you just can’t stop. A “gelli” plate is thin slab of a solid, but flexible synthetic gelatin-like material.

You apply acrylic paint and stencils and other materials onto the plate, lay a piece of paper over the plate and then pull the paper back up. The result is a “mono” print.

I now have stacks and stacks of these gelli prints, which I use in my art journals – and I use them as the basis for many of the patterns and prints you’ll see in my digital art journaling and scrapbooking kits.

Last week I scanned some of those prints and turned them into transparent overlays that you can use to make your own “mixed media backgrounds”! They’re in my shop now at my new release 20% off sale through Thursday, July 18th.

    Hi Vicki! Loved the above tutorial and I’d love to know more about creating my own papers. I love being able to completely customize papers/elements for my layouts (when necessary).
