April’s Colorful Gelli Print Party Using Packing Tape

Join me for a Colorful Gelli Print Party!


Welcome to April’s Colorful Gelli Print Party! The packing tape video by Gelli Arts (here) inspired my play today.  But, alas,  I am patience impaired and did not want to wait for the layers to dry so I played with the tape on the Gelli Plate in a different way.


What did I do with the patterned packing tape? I built it into a collage inspired by Karenliz over in the Google+ community,  A Colorful Playground.  She’s been sharing these great  collages in her small journal.   Stop on over to A Colorful Playground to see my  collage and check out all the other inspiration there!

Watch Packing Tape and the Gelli Plate on YouTube.

The pattern you see on the tapes was created with the Wonky Eyes stencil.

    Wonderful technique. Can’t wait to try it. Ithought you did a video on making your own Washi tapes. Did I dream it? Would love to see it if that is the case. Thanks.

      I have a workshop that focuses on altering different tapes and did some videos using the tapes in projects. Hope that helps Nora!

    Super! Love the finished custom tapes, and what a great point about how varying the background color can produce should contrasts.
