Gelli Print Journal Page 3 - Reflect

Welcome to page three of my Gelli® Print Art Journal that we started in the June 1 Ustream.Missed the Ustream, and page 2?

Here are the links to the posts so that you can catch up: 

Today, I used the numbers that I had printed backwards when I was trying to clean off my embossing folder. Since they were backwards, I was inspired to reference the word "reflect" as my quote on the page.   I found this really cool quote that I thought would be neat to use. It goes with my inspirational theme, and really gave me something to think about!

I used the Tim Holtz  Typeset Diecut  to cut out my letters  Since the background was so busy, I stuck with a piece of yellow scrap cardstock, then used my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Stamper's Big Brush Artist Pens to accent the word Learn.  Outlining around the letters, gave them more weight, and helped them to pop off the page.

When doing my doodles, on the left side, I decided to fill each "bubble" with the words used in the quote.   Remember that camera warranty paper I used for one of the prints?  It was used as one of my circles in the upper left hand corner, under the word "think".  I love that you can see the oriental text peek-a-booing out from behind the orange. 

I also stitched over both pages before adding them to the book. You can barely see the stitching, but it offers a nice texture to my background.   Love all these vivid colors too.  So fun, and inspiring.   

Here is a video tutorial showing how I created this spread.

  1. Tonya, just wanted to say that I am really enjoying "hanging out" with you during these vids for this gelli print booklet! I LOVE, LOVE it! You have given me a lot of great ideas for using my gelli, since I feel like I am not so fantastic with that guy?? I want to make one of these mini booklets so bad, so I have to get some of my commitments of my desk to free me up to give it a go! Thanks again for sharing your crafty goodness with us all! Blessings
