On my project today, I did gelli printing with leaves I found at our backyard and acrylic paints:

I had a piece of gelli print that I had left over from last project in gold, orange and yellow color. I added the red paint on the Gelli Arts printing plate with rubber brayer, then I added the leaves. Then I added a piece of scrap paper on it, rubbed all over the paper, the lifted it up. The paint transferred on the scrap paper, leave the leaves on the gelli printing plate. Gently I picked them up one by one.

Then I grab the other gelli print paper I had and put on top of the paint on the gelli print plate. Then after rubbing all over the back of the paper, I lifted it up and got this print below:

LOVE the bright fall colors I got from the gelli printing this time. This gelli printing technique is very unique. You cannot print the same pattern. Every you print, you’ll get only one of the kind 🙂

I added a strip of pattern paper on top of the card, then I added the gelli print paper on the card.

I stamped the sentiment from Unity – September KOTM with Versafine Onyx Black on a white cardstock, cut it out, and punch a hole on the corner with WRMK Crop-A-Dile. I tied up some May Arts Natural Twine and added the tag on it.

Isn’t that the printed leaves so unique? I love the surprise I get from each print for sure 🙂
