I’m guessing that you are like me and like to make the most out of the art that you make don’t you? I mean there is just so much you can do with it and I’ve shared ideas before like the blog post about turning your art journal pages into soft furnishings for your home or the one about making personalised stocking filler gifts (perfect for this time of year *wink *wink!). Well, as part of my Gelli Prints Project series I thought I would stretch the use of my monoprints and do a hybrid art journal page.
So today we are going partly digital and using some of my digital stamps from my Etsy shop with some digitalised gelli print papers as the focal point to a painted art journal page. So I have tips on how to scan your monoprints, how to add digital stamps to them in Photoshop Elements and also how to make a quick textured background with heavy body acrylic paint.
So a lot of subjects covered in my video today! Scroll down to find all the supplies plus a close-up of the finished art journal page.

Start here with tips on gelli printing.
Try out Project #1 with a technique for turning your drawings into mixed media collage.
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 #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.
I’m really interested to know how much hybrid work you include in your art and craft practice. So let me know if you use software and apps and which ones you use, also what do you make with them? Thanks guys!
Catch you all later!
