Gelli Arts® Gel Printing with the Cacti Garden Printing Kit by Marsha Valk

Hi there! It’s Marsha here today sharing Cacti Garden cards!

Have you seen the NEW Gelli Arts® DIY Printing Kits? There are three different kits, and they include everything you need to create a fun gel printing project.

Each one comes with full instructions, so they also make a great starter kit for anyone new to gel printing. 

To give you a jumping off point, the Cacti Garden Kit includes templates for several different cacti and pots. But you don’t have to stick to the provided shapes if you fancy a succulent or flower garden instead. 

You can easily adapt the plants to anything you’ve got your heart set on. The possibilities are endless!

There’s more than enough paint in the kit for additional prints. In the video, I used textured wallpaper to create prints on extra paper that I use as a backdrop for my cacti. 

In the Netherlands, you can find wallpaper samples at a DIY store. They’re usually free as long as you’re a paying customer, and you don’t take more samples than you would usually take when shopping for wallpaper. 

If your local DIY store doesn’t have wallpaper samples, you can use anything from textured paper, embossed cardstock to stamps and stencils from your stash to achieve a similar effect. 

Please share your Cacti Garden prints with us on Facebook and Instagram using #gelliarts and #gelliartsinspiration. We love seeing your creations!

Happy Printing!
