Decluttering some business files from 1998 – yes you read that correctly – 1998 – left a stack of discarded file folders that were pretty ratty. As I was contemplating what to do with them, the gelli plate popped into the corner of my eye. With a whole stack of stencils, rubber stamps, fingers making marks in the acrylic paint, I was able to gelli up those folders and turn them into something viable again. As I saw all the colorful results it occurred to me that maybe a folder journal would be in the making. There are so many layers of paint on these that they stand up by themselves….wooha.
The gelli is a great way to snazzy up any old thing and give it new life. Hop on over to Carolyn Dube’s A Colorful Gelli Print Party and see what everyone else is doing…..
