I love working with a Gelli® plate, there’s nothing that creates better grungy backgrounds. In today’s project, I didn’t use a paint brush, just my specialty shapes and 5x7 Gelli® plate. The versatility of a Gelli® plate continues to grow and I love being creative and thinking outside the box when I use it. The Americana Premium paints work perfectly with great thickness and working time and give great prints and perfects to use when stamping with your plates.

“Follow your heart” is a simple project with beautiful effects. I hope you enjoy the project and get creative with your products!
