Hello, Tania here!
Gel printing can be done on any surface, and recently I have been really into making handmade art journals and experimenting with different ways to bind them. I had a lot of blank envelopes left over from a previous project, which I thought would be perfect for gel printing.
Watch my video tutorial on how I made this gel printed envelope album, which could be perfect for keeping notes, mementos, or add DIY postcards made with more gel prints and add your own journaling!
To begin, I gel printed on the envelopes with acrylic paints, making sure to cover both sides. I used bubble wrap, stencils and the Gelli Arts® mini tools to create patterns into the paint on the plate.
My journal was made with 10 envelopes which I bound together by gluing the flaps of envelopes to their sides. There are many different ways to attach the envelopes together, but I like using this method the most as I think it makes it look more like a little journal book and hides the binding!
I hope you enjoy the video and have a go at making your own little art journal!
