Excitement levels are off the charts here at Gelli Arts®! We’re
bursting with inspiration for stamping with our NEW Mini Printing Plates! Watch
this video and see how AWESOME the Mini geometric plates are!!
The Gelli® Mini printing plates are available in two different
sets. One set includes a square, a circle and a triangle. The other set has a rectangle, an oval, and a hexagon. Each Mini plate fits within a 3″ area.
Versatile shapes — so FUN to use!
These basic geometric shapes are the building blocks of endless
great designs! What CAN’T you do with the Gelli® Mini plates?!!! Simply put one
on an acrylic block and stamp your heart out — on whatever you’re working on!
Don’t have an acrylic block? A sheet of acrylic or any smooth
plastic piece will do. The lid of a CD case works just fine.
Creating designs with these amazing little monoprinting plates is
just like printing with any Gelli® plate. Stencils, combs, and found textures
all work great!
The Crafter’s Workshop ‘Bits’, ‘Fragments’, and ‘Remnants’ lines
of stencils and masks are sized right for printing with the Mini Gelli® plates!
And so perfect if you want to create small layered images like these.
When it comes to adding accents to an art journal or a planner page—stamping with these fun Mini plate shapes creates such artful impressions!
Each stamped Mini image is unique— a true monotype!
The Mini plates are so addicting—I get totally carried away! So
much for adding just an ‘accent’ to this ‘To Do’ page! 🙂
When you start stamping with Mini plates it’s hard to stop! Especially
using shapes that ‘fit’ together to create an all-over pattern. Start stamping
triangles and hexagons and you’ll see what I mean!
This print was stamped on a piece of Strathmore Bristol, which
was first trimmed to 8.5″x11. After the print was dry, I cut it in half
and used an Arc punch to make holes along the margin. So the pages fit right
into my disk-bound planner. Now I can look at those pages all the time! If I
want to work further on the prints, they’re easy to pop out and stick back in.
Those of us who love layers in our artwork will welcome the
creative effects you can get using these small printing plates. Is there an
easier way to create a focal point on a larger piece? I’m even adding stamped
Mini plate images to the art journal pages I use to clean off the excess paint
from my brayer, palette knife and texture tools while printing with Gelli Arts®.
Simply put, I’m having a BLAST stamping with each of the new Mini
All of the artwork shown here and in the video was printed using
a variety of DecoArt Acrylic paints, including their Media acrylics, Americana
Acrylics, Americana Multi-Surface Satin, and Dazzling Metallics. I’m so pleased
with the results I get from all of these paints. And they’re great for stamping
with the new Gelli® Mini plates. A small drop of paint is about all it takes.
Mini Printing Plates are made of the same gel material as all of
the other sizes of Gelli® plates! So you KNOW they’re an amazing and unique
printing experience! Try them and see what all the excitement is about!
