Making a Mess

The Gelli plates are as fun as they look on You Tube as long as you don't mind making a mess.

I've been embossing paper and fun foam to use as imprints using my Cuttlebug-that's the little machine I use to make cards.

 After rolling paint on the plate, you put an embossed paper down to make an imprint. Then you make a print from the plate and from the embossed paper.

That way you get two images from one roll of paint.

 After all that paper was dry I cut it into 1 inch strips.

Then into 1 inch squares. I'm not sure exactly how yet but it's getting glued down in an art journal as a background of some sort. Beyond that....I don't have a clue.


  1. Wow! That looks fun and messy. :-). You always do such fun crafts.

  2. You channeled your inner quilter-it looks like a paper quilt to me! Beautiful and so much fun!

  3. You definitely have more patience than I do! Those are really pretty though.

  4. That's my kind of mess! ❤️ ❤️

  5. Deb..that's amazing fun crafting. I like a roller so I may like that type of fun

  6. Looks like you have a lot of pretty patterns to play with.

  7. That looks fun! Well, up until the cutting part :)
