This may be my favorite tutorial in the Gelli Plate series. I love using a paint brush to make designs to print on my papers. I think you will too.
- Gelli Plate (I'm using a 6"x6" plate)
- Paper (I'm using 4"x6" scrapbook paper)
- Assorted Paint Brushes (I'm using the Dina Wakley Media Brushes)
- Assorted Paint (I'm using Dina Wakley Media paints)
- Craft Mat or Palette Paper

STEP TWO: Start drawing with your paint brush and add different colors in. I drew half circles with assorted colors to make full circles.
STEP THREE: press your paper into the Gelli Plate
STEP FOUR: Pull the papers up to reveal the print.
NOTE: There is plenty of paint leftover on the plate, so I press more paper into them for more impressions.
As you can see, the circles are much more subtle but still really great impressions.
REPEAT steps TWO - FOUR until you've used up the paint on your mat... no wasting yummy paint.
Here's my finished cards! Well, actually they aren't finished. I'm going to add some finishing touches to the cards next week. Be sure to come by again next Monday as I finish up these cards to be used in my weekly scrapbook pages.
