Create Easy Thank You Cards With The Gelli® Plate
To make these elegant Thank You cards Gelli Arts® artist Michelle Mixed Media cut cardstock masks and stencils with metal dies and a die-cutting machine. If you don't have dies, you could hand-cut botanical shapes. Michelle used the masks and stencils to create gel prints, which she simply adhered to blank cards. #gelliarts #gelprinting #monoprinting #cardmaking #printmaking #printingplate #diecuts

Gel Printed Fall Bouquet
Fall leaves make wonderful gel prints, but did you know you can also print ON leaves? This project works in two ways: use the leaves as masks to create beautiful botanical monoprints on paper and cover both sides of each leaf with paint in the process. You don't have to dry the leaves before you print them, but flattened leaves are easier to print on, so press them first. #gelliarts #gelprinting #monoprinting #printmaking #falldecoration

Gel Printing With Nature
Monoprinting with natural objects such as flowers, leaves, seeds, and even rocks or twigs can be a fun and easy way to create stunning prints. Top tips from Gelli Arts® artist Tania Ahmed: if your paint is drying too fast use slow-drying acrylic paints or medium made for acrylic paints. You can use printmaking inks too. Try experimenting with the amount of paint you use. Keep in mind that heat or dryness can affect how fast your paint dries.

Botanical Gel Printing with Stamping Ink
Watch Gelli® artist Birgit Koopsen as she gel prints with leaves and stamping inks. You can use any dye or pigment ink. Waterreactive inks are less suitable because they bead up on the gel plate and won’t give as much detail. Be aware that some inks might stain the gel plate. This does not harm or damage your plate nor will the stains affect future prints. Birgit prints on regular copy paper. #gelliarts #gelprinting #printmaking #monoprinting #botanicalprinting
