Gelli Print Inspiration Tags

A couple of weeks ago I was inspired by Kiala Givehand and Sarah Ahearn Bellemare to create my own inspiration tags using gelli prints.  The tags can be used when you have a block when creating especially in your art journal.

I created 59 tags and got my ideas from Sarah's book - Painted Pages - we did something similiar at Squam, from Kiala's Mixed Media Inspiration Deck™ and from what I like to do such as stamping with a cork or  zentangle doodling and from what supplies I had.

I typed out my list and then printed it off, cut them out and glued them on with gel medium and then sprayed the tags with varnish so they don't stick together (hopefully).

Kiala sells her decks at a very good price, $15, but I decided to make mine as I live in Australia and didn't want to deal with shipping ($14 international and $3.50 in the USA), I wanted to use my gelli print tags and I thought it would be a challenge and fun.

If you make your own then let me know, send me a link, I'd love to check them out.  Have Fun.

Do you love creating gelli prints?  Want a place to discuss gelli printing?  To show off your work?  Share your ideas? Discuss the pros and cons of different paints/paper/plates/tools etc?  Get some great ideas on what to do with the thousands of prints you have created?

Then I would love you to join me at the Gelatin Printing Enthusiasts Facebook Group. This group is open to people who use a Gelli Arts Plate or who make their own gelatin plate.
