An Afternoon With The Gelli Plate

I am learning to LOVE my Gelli Plates! I recently saw a fabulous You Tube video by Brigit Koopsen.  It inspired me so much that I couldn't stop creating Gelli prints!

I won't show you how I created the prints as Brigit shows this in her video.  I used Paper Artsy Fresco Finish paints which worked a dream.  This is what I created....

It really was addictive!! I just couldn't stop printing.

I then used Brigit's technique and created a birthday card for my bestie, Caz.  The main image is an Everything Art stamp from Paper Artsy.

I had loads of prints left over and so have started to create a background in my small journal. 

I'm not sure what to do with this page yet so will probably come back to it!

I really think that you should have a play at this technique - it is so much fun!

Thanks for looking.....


  1. I am determined to open my Gelli plate soon. Gorgeous prints

  2. I saw the video Miriam, fab wasn't it, who knew you could put gesso and gel mediumon your gelli plate - lol x Are they fabric prints? They look like it xx

    1. It was a fab video! They are printed onto tissue paper - it is almost glassine like!

  3. Glad you've learned to love the Gelli plate. Of course it means we need more stencils. Lovely card too.
