Recycle! Print with Packaging Materials by Birgit Koopsen

Hi
there, welcome to the Gelli Arts® blog!

It’s Birgit
here today and I’m back with a new recycle video!

This
time I’m using packaging materials.

Unfortunately
almost everything we buy in the supermarket is packed, a lot of times, in
plastic. That’s a lot of trash we create!  But, when you take the time to look
at your waste with different eyes (i.e. the eyes of a gel printer) then you will
realize that a lot of this so called trash makes perfect printing tools. This
is also great when you are creating on a budget!

In
this video I’m showing you 3 different types of packaging; egg cartons, pill
strips and cookie trays. Each of them makes beautiful and surprising prints! I
am sure you can find many more “waste” items to use in your printing sessions!

So, I
am challenging you to look at your trash with gel printer eyes, create
something beautiful, share on social media and tag us @gelliarts so we can see
what you came up with.

Products
used:

Gelli Arts® gelprinting plate 5”x7” (buy here)

Brayer

Acrylic
paint (Gelli Arts® and DecoArt)

Packaging
material

Heavy
copier paper

Thank
you so much for visiting!

Happy
printing!

  1. Fabulous! I use household items all the time but never considered the bottom of cookie trays, etc. Can't wait to make time to play with these…off to search the pantry! Thanks Birgit and Gelli Arts for all the wonderful inspirations!♥
