Gelli Journal 2013 - Front Cover

This is the front cover of one of my Gelli Journals that I made. Each page was made from cardboard from cereal boxes, cracker boxes, etc. I gessoed both sides of the cardboard and then did gelli printing on each side. I made my own gelatin plates just to try it out to see if I liked making the monoprints. I did! I had a blast. So now I am the proud owner of a Gelli Plate.
I used my Dylusions stamp for the girl on the front cover. I collaged some patterned paper and lace, then did some stamping and colouring onto the background. I cut out the girl and collaged her on  last. Then I wrote the title with a black fine line marker.
I found the recipe for the gelatin plates on You Tube. They are easy to make but do tend to crack with lots of use.
Take care and have a fun and creative day. :D

Trish! This is lovely! Looking forward to seeing your designs. I bought a gelli plate with a coupon cause I just had to have it. I've been watching Youtube studying and getting ready. :o) Have fun Sister!

Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
