gelli printing! it’s been a while…

I pulled out one of my gelli plates this week and did some printing. It’d been awhile – I forgot how much I LOVE my gelli plates!

I used my 8″ X 10″ Gelli Printing Plate this time – the perfect size for the cardstock I had on hand, and for my sketchbook.

You don’t need fancy or expensive tools for your Gelli Plate. The wavy roller and the shelf liner I used here were from the 99 Cents store, as were the cotton swabs I used to write the word “create”. Get creative – look around for everyday household items you can use!

’til next time…
