There is free stuff all around that is just begging to be used on the Gelli Plate! A recent stay in a hotel room provided me lots of free goodies that I thought would be cool to use on the Gelli Plate! So, for this month’s Colorful Gelli Print Party I decided to bring it all home and play!
What did I use? A drink carrier from McDonald’s, bars of soap, and a mini bottle of shampoo.
Watch Use Free Stuff on the Gelli Plate on YouTube.

The drink carrier made this print…after a little modification.
This print went from ho-hum to happy with just a few layers.
A bar of soap may be my new favorite Gelli supply!
The Round Gelli Plate is now on Amazon with Prime shipping!
Want more Gelli Plate inspiration? Check out just some of what was shared in the last month over in the Google+ community, A Colorful Playground. There’s Claudia MB turning junk mail into something happy, Miranda Banks is playing with leaves, Kristi Matta is making jewelry with prints, Ruth L is die cutting Gelli prints, Cyberbogeee6 is using Distress inks on the plate, and so much more! And while you’re there – share what you’ve been making! New to Google+? No problem! We’re all learning that together.
Wow! Now I have to go stay in a hotel, gather up some supplies and buy me a round gelli plate. hehe Love those round beauties you made. AWESOME! :0)
I love found/free stuff too! A friend in my knitting group brings me a bag of “trash” every week — interesting packing materials, empty soap boxes (she likes the fancy soaps that come in individual boxes, mesh produce bags, etc. I’m afraid we’re getting a reputation, but we don’t care! Coffee sleeves are one of my favorite texture tools — never realized how many different ones there are.
That is a reputation I can be proud of – I’m getting to be like a little kid who likes the packaging more than the item/gift it seems…I’m going to have to keep an eye on my coffee drinking friends for those sleeves or start drinking it!
Great use of free supplies. All the soaps we’ve come across in hotels have been square or rectangular, so find some with raised circles must have been exciting! Have you tried the ends of lemonade bottles too?
I have not, but now will be on the lookout for lemonade bottles!
Loved this – love watching all your videos. You are so inspiring. Just love the way you encourage us to just go with it and have FUN!
Now I want us to go on a Road Trip and see who can find the best stuff to Gelli Print with!!!! Such a good idea!!!!! You got some fabulous prints!!!!
Love it as always but it’s your enthusiasm that grabs me every time and makes me want to run to my table. I hope you realize what a gift you are giving us all. We can all appreciate a beautiful pAinting in a museum or a book but how really rarely do we want to throw down the iPad and run to the studio? Not iften but you a and your poppin personality and acceptance have probably sent many people to that happy place. That is something that you can go down in history for,proudly!!! Congratulations..love your work,joy and humanity.
Most onventive as always. xox
I’m so glad I found you! Love the videos! And your color sense is amazing!
I love the playfulness of gelli printing.
So much fun, Carolyn! That soap looks fun!
