As promised I am back with a project idea for using the Gelli prints I made in my last video. I thought it would be fun to use them to turn one of my Inktober sketches into a mixed media project. So I’m sharing my process for transforming this ink sketch into a mixed media collage.
I’ve got a bit of a fixation on these little houses on hill scenes that I’ve been drawing recently, so it was fun to use it as the inspiration for this project and to see what else I could do with it. And I hope that it inspires you to take one of your recent sketches and see what you can turn it into!
Enjoy the video and as always the supply list is below. If you missed the video on how I made the gelli prints then scroll down to my last blog post or swing on by YouTube channel to watch my Quick Gelli Plate Printed Papers video.

Start here with tips on gelli printing.
Project #2 was all about using gelli prints to make botanical art.
Project #3 use your gelli prints to make cute envelopes with colour on the inside and outside. PLUS there is a free template too!
Project #4 scan your gelli prints and use them to add printed elements in a hybrid art journal page.
Project #5 use your gelli prints to make a cute coordinated present wrap gift set (perfect for Christmas btw!).
Haven’t got a gelli plate? Don’t worry, make your own with this handy blog post on Gelatin plates.
But the question is, what should I now do with this little scene now? I could turn it into a greeting card, or perhaps it would make a good art journal element, or maybe I should leave it as a stand alone piece? What do you think I should do with it? I would love to know so leave a comment below!
