Default Now that you have a stack of Gelli prints...

What do you do with them?

I've only used mine for backgrounds so far.

Look at them. HAHAHAHA!!!!!! I might paste some into my art journal. One I die cut with a big Simon Says Stamp balloon die to make some birthday cards. A few that I used bubble wrap on will become backgrounds for an ocean themed ATC for a swap. So far it's more about the joy and magic of making them than doing something with them.

I decided to do art journaling on individual pages that will be bound together later so I put all my mono-prints together into a file folder.

When I'm ready to journal I just pull one out and finish it into a completed page. The completed pages go into another folder, when I have enough finished I'll bind them.

I've used one for the background for a card. I have some I don't think are "finished" yet. I'll probably revisit them and add additional layers.

I did most of my prints on manila folders and I use a lot of them for diecutting, punching or backgrounds.

Is hoard them an option? I get attached to some which I've kept - but for many, I've die cut them, used the die cut inlay technique, etc. Here's an example:

I do have one of my first ones hanging on my fridge because it makes me happy to look at its bright colors.

I just have colored copies of my prints. I made them all for specific projects and used them up. I'll be pulling some prints for Christmas projects, and I'll have to make some extra to have on hand. I wish I had more actual prints and not just copies.

I'd love to show you but I'm seriously media challenged right now and can't upload anything. Just FYI my most frequently used stencil is Michelle Ward's "Doge's Row Stencil" GPP RUBBER STAMPS & STENCILS (scroll down the site won't let me link the stencil itself), which I use a lot with Tim Holtz's Frameworks Courtyard die 74 659429 Tim Holtz Alterations Frameworks COURTYARD Die Detail Page and a custom made greeting stamp "Blessings."

Green Pepper Press is Michelle Ward's own company. I like buying directly from the artist if I can. She also sells her stencils through Stencil Girl Products. That's Mary Beth Shaw's company. Stencil Girl carries gorgeous stencils by a wide variety of artists. It seems like an artist's cooperative: StencilGirl Products for people who love stencils like we love stencils.
Mary Beth Shaw's instructional CDs are also very good.

I have some coasters that are frames, too - I may cut a few prints to size for those and just leave them as is. Some of them are too pretty to cut or to cover up!

Well, it's been over a year since we discussed this. Can anyone share other things they have made using Gelli prints? I know they can be used in journals, but that's just not my thing. I'd love to incorporate them into cards, but I'm not sure how. Suggestions?

I has probably already been mentioned but wanted to reiterate that gel prints make awesome covers for your calendars, diary, art journal and bullet journals.

I made a journal using standard 8 1/2 x 11 paper folded in half and then used gel printed 9 x 12 mixed media canvas paper folded in half for the cover. It is the perfect fit and the gel prints I did on the front and back make me smile every time I grab that journal.

Love this thread from 2015 was revived.

You can cut them into strips and adhere the strips to anything: cans (for pen/pencil cups), wood panels like we did in Kae Pea's (RubberMoon Stamps) Strip Club class, bottles, boxes, etc.
We adhered gel print (and/or DSP and/or magazine pages) strips to an 8" panel which could be a plant stand with legs attached (check out Lowes), or hung. I bought a 3.5" lazy susan mechanism for mine.

Our much smaller (4"?) panel could be hung or a second one hinged to it to make a stand-up photo holder or box.

Strips just need to be adhered, and if using a can, bottle, etc. then something like Mod Podge Hard Coat put on for a final coat. Resin was applied to the 8" and 3.5" panels we made since they're flat. Resin kits are sold and big box home improvement stores even sell them.

Enjoy.

They can make great backgrounds for cards. Often times, I find an average print really comes into it's own with the right image, in the right place. To help that, I'll stamp my image onto a piece of plastic/ohp film, then I can move it around on the background, to decide where it will work best.
