Gelli Plate Madness!

Hi! and Happy Monday!

Tina here today to kick us off with our September Design Team tutorials, tips, and how-to's.  Before we get started with today's video tutorial, let's take a peek again at the 2 AMAZING kits offered this month!

First up, we have the September Mixed Media kit!

Neons are screaming HOT today and this kit is full of bright, vibrant colors and patterns.  The creating possibilities are endless!

We also have a Limited Edition kit, that will provide an unlimited amount of projects and will allow you to create unique, one of a kind mixed media canvases, art journals, and more.

Today, I will be sharing a few projects created with the September Limited Edition kit.  My first video tutorial will show you how to use your Gelli Plate and provide some basic information on the Gelli Plate projects and options.

Let's get started with the first video tutorial!

How is that for a cool product?  And so many uses!

I also wanted to share with you 2 projects I created with my Gelli Plate prints.  First, I would like to share a Girl Canvas that was created using several of my Gelli Prints on Deli Paper.

The canvas background was created using Gelli Prints, paint, and ink.  Here's a short video on that process.

My second project uses one of my Gelli prints as a base for an art journal page.  I don't have a video tutorial on my design process, but here are some images of my art journal page and close-ups.

I used a similar technique as used on my Girl canvas, building layers with paint, ink, and sprays.

If you are looking for a way to create endless, unique projects, a Gelli Plate is the way to go!  You will be addicted, I can guarantee it!  :)

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great Monday!


  1. Hi, love what you are creating w/ the Gelli Plate and Deli Paper. Question regarding the Deli paper, where can you buy, and is there different types of paper or are they all the same? I see different sizes, some seem to have a fold in the middle, and some on a roll. So looking for some input.

    1. Hi Mary! Thank you for the kind words. I purchased my Deli Paper from I wanted a 12x12 size, and they had it for a good price. (I can't remember what I paid, but I have enough Deli paper for a life-time) ;) They are not rolled or folded and came in a box. It does have a slight waxy finish, which is not preferred, but I couldn't find the non-wax kind. It works okay for my Gelli Prints and I figure I might as well use it since I have it. I want to find the true non-wax kind to see the difference. I also love using 140lb smooth finish paper. It's a nice thicker paper that takes well to Gelli Printing.

  2. Love this month! Super video and great hints for those who are new to the plate:)
