To kick off the first of Gelliuary with a project. I made a mini journal version of what I saw from TheBookVandalShop. I watched this video so long ago. I felt the need to revisit and create it again. I love her projects
Here’s a flip through of it. I wanted to make it masculine since I always make things that seem a little more on the feminine side.
I didn’t Gelli plate the whole thing, just the signature. The pages are inserts that came with some kits. I just layered until I couldn’t see what was printed anymore. I also hit it with a few of my alcohol sprays.
For January, I’ll be dedicating more time to gelli plate projects. I haven’t used my plate as much as I’d like to, so I will do it this month. I won’t post every single day, but I’ll put together some projects you may want to try.
Did You Know?
I attempted to gelli plate a cookie with icing? Epic fail. I dont think the texture of the plate liked the icing. I did use my homemade plate since it was made from food-safe products. Ill try it again, but maybe on something other than a jiggly square if gelatin.
After 2 weeks of training, I’m off until after Christmas. Today is just my first day in and I’m already on a creative cloud. I decided to pull out a random hand full of box flaps that I cut off the main part of food packaging and create.
I used stencils from P.M. Artist Studio. A pair of Mixed Media Queens I’ve been following for about a year or so. One of my most favorite things they make are gelli printed, stenciled, ATC’s. To me, it’s like a decorated cookie.
With my scraps, stencils, paints, alcohol sprays, texture paste, and gelli plate, I created these babies.
The tiny one at the top is my FAVORITE one. It may be an inch and a half by three quarters of an inch.
I really enjoyed making these and I may get out some more scraps to continue.
