Hi Art Friends! I am so pleased to be a part of the Gelli Arts® Design Team. Do you have supplies in your stash that you haven’t used in a while? Well, I do and I have been trying to some use out of them since they have been collecting dust. I have had a bunch of Posca Pens from a previous project that I haven’t used in almost a year. After using my Gelli Printing Plate with some acrylic paint, I wondered if paint pens would work too. And yes they do!
In this tutorial, I am using the 8” Round Gelli Printing Plate with Posca Paint Markers.
I love the effects you can get by overlaying patterns in different colors.
And when you introduce stamping ink, you can pull up more layers.
I hope you will give this a try.
