Printing Focal Images with Gelli Arts® by Alexa Doebler

Hey hey Gelli Arts®️ Printers! Alexa here today to dive into using our Gel Plate for creating a main focal image!


Often when we are printing with our Gelli Arts ®️ printing plate, we are thinking of backgrounds & collage pages, things we can use to start our art journal pages or cards. But what if we could create amazing focal images using our printing plate instead of just backgrounds?!

Today, I’ll show you how to use craft foam to create you own unique-to-you stamp/texture plate for your gel plate. Instead of creating textures &/or patterns, we will use the foam to create the image we want front & center….think flowers, hearts, words, butterflies…or my favorite, faces!


Watch how I create a focal image stamp here:
