Today I am sharing how I like to create patterns using the Gelli Arts® Mini Gel Plates. This is a fun way to create patterned papers to use in other projects or as a base for an art journal page or even collage!
I love doing this especially when I feel my creative mojo dipping low, just choose a few acrylic paints, a Mini Plate and a few textured supplies and start stamping!
As the weather is a bit warmer here in the UK, some of my paint was drying faster than expected, but I didn’t mind as it gave me some unexpected extra texture in my second generation and ghost prints.
I pulled out an assortment of my DIY texture plates and supplies: foams stamps, corrugated cardboard plates, lace, etc!
Stamping with the Mini Plates mounted on to a storage case is one of my favorite ways to gel print, as no patterns are ever the same, plus you can even mix and match your gel plates!
To finish off, you can make easy paper flowers by either creating your own template as show in the video tutorial, die cut, punch or even download a pattern from the internet. Making handmade paper flowers has always been one of my favourite ways to papercraft.
I hope that you enjoyed my video tutorial and blogpost, feel free to leave comments or let me know if you have any questions.
Have a great day and happy gel printing!
