Latest Art Journal pages with Gelli Prints

Having lots of fun adding gelli plate prints and punches onto the art journal backgrounds that were painted during the gelli print process.

“Time is my Friend” Art Journal Layout

Gelli printing

I’m trying to make “friends with Time” as I never seem to have enough of it and Marie Forloe talked about making friends in a recent video ~ How to be Productive. Here’s the first step in that attempt!

“Live Life” Art Journal Layout

Using gelli plate prints in art journaling

This layout again used gelli plate printing papers, cut and torn, then details added with charcoal to add highlights. Here is a close up of circles inspired by Roben-Marie and her style, plus a chipboard flower painted in yellow.

To add the “live” text, I used the computer to print out large letters and create a stencil. Then I outlined the letters with a black Sharpie marker then added the colour with Derwent Inktense Blocks. I love this process and continue to have lots of fun with it – you can see other examples here ~ Inspiring Quotes for Art Journal ~ with a few more process steps explained

Marie Forleo quote Art Journal

Using gelli prints for art journal layouts

This quote “Clarity comes through Engagement, not thought” is another Marie Forleo inspired quote. It’s interesting how I can focus on one theme when using quotes that have ignited something inside of me, and use the process to internalise what this quote means to me!

Happy Creating,

Michelle

  1. I love your gelli prints. Great for journalling. I haven’t tried that..I dont have a gelli plate but could use a glass plate as I’ve done that for monotypes in the past.
