Fun fun fun with Gelli Plate and Package Tape

Hello and Happy New Year!

I am finaly back in my Craft room after a looong holiday ☺ I am so ready for doing some art no so I'm just starting by showing you my latest artwork:

This I made on my Gelli Plate, and I would like to show you step by step how I did this:

1. Take your Gel Printing Plate, cover some space with Delipaper. If you don't have Delipaper like me, you can use bakingpaper from your Kitchen.


2. Roll on acrylic paint with one or two colors. I've used two colors here; green and yellow

3. Find some stamps you want to use. I've used stamps from Rubber Dance.

4. Stamp all over your Gelli plate with different colors and different stamps.

5. Let it all dry. It is very important that it is all completely dry. This technique will not work if the paint is still wet.

6. Take your package tape and tape side by side all over your Gelli plate. Start at the top of your plate and tape all the way down. Make shore you're not overlapping.

7. Pull the tape of and then turn the backside up on your workingtable and ad some Metal Leaf in silver, gold or copper here and there on the tape where there is no paint. Don't use to much of the leaf, just a tiny bit here and there.

8. Ad colours on the open space where it's still sticky with Pan Pastel or Perfect Pearls with a brush. Use different color and different media on each strip for variation.

9. Clean your brush betwen the layers on a silicon mat.

Here is the final results, strips in beautiful bright colours and patterns. It's much more colorful and bright in reality. Try it and you will see ☺

You might use these colorful glossy strips to paste in your Art Journal as a window with a frame, like I will do.

And with this colourful beauty I'm joining the fun at:
