Pod of Whales Notebook - a Gelli Arts & DecoArt Project

Hi, servus and thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have been enjoying a lovely summer so far!

Today's post is meant to invite you over to the DecoArt Mixed Media Blog, where the DecoArt Mixed Media Design Team are sharing projects throughout this month that were all done using Gelli Arts products (Gelli Plates and Gelli Arts gel printing tools) and the wonderful DecoArt premium acrylic paints. A round up of all the projects for July can be found HERE.

The team were all given Gelli Plates and brayers, so we could go wild and experiment and indulge in heavy gel plate printing with creating piles of beautiful prints, some of which we used to create a bundle of summer themed inspiring projects that will all be shared on the Mixed Media Blog during July. You even get the chance to win a fab bundle of Gelli Arts and DecoArt products! Information on how to enter the giveaway can be found over at the DecoArt Mixed Media Blog as well as the Gelli Arts blog.

My project that goes live today was inspired by my love for the ocean and especially for whales, so I went for refreshing blues and greens when picking paints for my gel plate prints ;)

Here's a picture of my work space covered with the Gelli Arts texture tool (the Gelli Plate is hidden somewhere underneath the prints), DecoArt premium (and Americana Titanium White) paints and the prints I had picked for creating my Mixed Media Blog project.

...and here (yay...just found it again!) is the picture that shows all the DecoArt premium paints and Gelli Arts Gelli Plate and special tools I used (and also the die cut masks and foam stamps I used to create my collage papers). Somehow the brayer I used didn't make it into the picture, but it is somewhere close by... no gel plate printing without a proper brayer to spread the paints, right?

In my tutorial that can be found over at the DecoArt Mixed Media Blog today, I am not only sharing a detailed step by step on how to make gel plate prints using masks and stencils and how to create an art journal using these prints together with grey board and cutting die, but I am also sharing how to use the papers you clean the brayer on and make them part of the finished project.

Curious? Good! 

I hope to see you over at the Mixed Media Blog. And good luck with the prize draw!!! ;)

Hugs and happy crafting!
