Default Gelli Plate RAK (Giveaway)

I won a prize package from Gelli Arts today by posting photos of some Gelli plate prints/mini index-card book on Instagram. I'd never posted on Instagram so was both lucky and way behind the times.

An 8x10 Gelli Arts Plate is included in the prize pack. I already have one and smaller ones, so I'd like to send it to someone here on SCS.

Requirements: 1) likes acrylic paint, 2) not afraid to get messy, though I've heard of people who use Gelli plates pristinely, and 3) will send me your address.

Just say you'd like it on this thread or PM me if you're shy, and I'll draw a name and announce the winner (even if you're shy) on Tuesday. No charge for postage.

Also in the prize pack that I'm keeping: four stencils, a package of parchment paper and a Gelli apron! For those who want to enter to win a prize pack on one of the following four Fridays, post prints made with a Gelli Arts plate on Instagram with #GelliArtsSummerPrints

Thanks,Kathy. Free for me + already have one + wonderful people here = no brainer.

SCS members are so polite. On another smaller message board I visit once in a while, if someone posts a RAK, in about .000003 seconds there are 25 posts saying, "Me!"

Sometimes they're pretty quick here, too, but always kind. Or maybe they're not quick, I'm just slow!

Congratulations on your win! It's always nice to get a nice surprise like that. And, thank you on your generosity, I just ordered one of these to try, based on Lydia's video using it with the MISTI. Looks so creative.

How cool! I have a 6" one but I'd love a larger play area. (Actually I did have an 8x10 but I cut it up to accommodate some other projects...)

You CUT your gel plate?!?!?!? *gasp* *faint*


How cool that you won a fun prize, Beth!! Congratulations!! I'd love to put my name in the hat as I only have one and it is a little square one, 4x4 I think? Not quite big enough to do entire card fronts.


I learned some fun techniques with regular dye ink pads and the gel plate, so you don't "have" to use paint. That was fun!

I've used ink a time or two, you're right. It hasn't wowed me like layers of paint, but was fun. Stamping on the paint with stamps is neat too.

And Dini, I knew someone who cut up her plate - and then regretted it. : ) It was before they made the small ones.

The prize package arrived yesterday! Love the apron, plus two of the four stencils included the positive pieces, so you could make outlines with them. (Or are they the negatives?!)

Re storage, they told me you don't have to put the Gelli plate back in the clamshell with the acetate pieces on top and bottom. In fact, mine got air bubbles that way since the acetate wasn't 100% smoothed out and annoying to position. Mine does live in the clamshell due to Cats X 3 = Furry Gelli Plate (and until last year, add dog fur too), but at GelliArt they leave them out, stacked up with copy paper in between each one. (The Gelli Plates, not cats.)

My all time favorite mark maker is an old, plastic hair roller - the kind with little points and a C-shaped cover? Gently rolling the roller or part of the C-shaped cover, and stamping with the ends of either one made me so happy that the LSS instructor gave it to me.

I had no idea you could store them stacked on top of each other. That's great to know - thanks!

And yeah, I hear you about the cat/dog hair. I should probably find a flat box of some sort to keep mine in. LOL

To clarify, you'd want a piece of copy paper in between each one. : )

I was admiring your dog! : )

I said I'd draw a name on Tuesday, and planned to stay up until 11:59:59 to do so, but was asleep by 10:00. So the name drawn was Scrapjanny's. : )

If you PM me your name/address your Gelli Plate will be on its way to its deserving home by this Saturday. Congrats and thanks for playing, everyone.

I used to be a night owl. Work kinda interferes with that since I have to get up so early and be at work in the wee hours of the day. Ugh. There are nights I struggle to stay awake until 8pm. And yes, I have crashed in bed at 7 or 7:30 at times when I'm really really pooped. Retirement is looking better and better, but it is sooooooooo far away..........

I luv working with the gelli plates! I wish they were out when I first started papercrafting 20 yrs ago. Since I invested in them ( 8x10, 5x7 and the mini's) I no longer buy printed paper or colored cardstock. I print my own papers/envelopes for projects and scraps are used as coordinating embellishments.In addition, I use a little bit of baby oil to condition them when I stored them.

I love that you use it that way. I die cut out of Gelli Prints. And love that care is fairly nonexistent. Here are storage, cleaning and care recommendations:

https://www.gelliarts.com/pages/what-to-know

I saw a Gelli Plate get damaged because an instructor's bottle had dried paint on the cap. When she opened the bottle, chips fell off onto the plate. She brayered her print, which pressed chips onto the plate, and then picked them off with a fingernail. One made a small gouge. Now her prints will have a beauty mark on one side. ; )

I wipe off the openings of paint tubes and bottles before putting them away, or you can open the paint to the side of the Gelli Plate, not right over it.

I actually wash off the plate in the sink, though many people don't clean them and the ghost prints by pulling off old paint can look neat.

At the end of a session sometimes you can get a beatiful print by leaving remaining paint, and putting a coating of white on top. At the class where we made a min-book out of Gelli-plated index cards folded in half, we did that and the print became my cover, adhered to book board. : )

Off my Gelli-infatuated soapbox...

You are now officially an 8x10 Gelli Plate P.I.


(The multi-colored area, coppery name plate and envelope are from Gelli prints.) What am I, eight years old? So silly, I know.

I got a real kick out of it. Then again, I'm not much more than 8 myself. It's good to be a kid, isn't it?
