audio your journal pages are so vivid!

I watched a tutorial on doing gelli prints with packing tape.  I watched it twice.
I tried it out and had various levels of success.  Not all the paint on the plate would come off on the tape no matter how hard or much I burnished it. Which means it's still slightly sticky on the back when the tutorial says it won't have any stickiness.  I am storing the strips sandwiched between waxed paper so they don't stick to other papers.

But over all I liked the concept and the tape strips are cool.  You have the gelli print design and can still see through it enough that you would see whatever paper you put it on. and of course since it's tape it has a shine to it.

It was hard to get a good pic because of the glare on the tape and you can obviously see the sections where the transfer of the print didn't take.  but I will most likely cut them up in small pieces any way so it shouldn't be too much of an issue



Tape on my current crochet pattern - you can see text through the tape.
and you can see a small strip of scotch tape I tried.

I've seen videos like this also. You can cover the stickiness by adding paper or some have used gold dust powder - can't think of what it is called.

If it is your intent to just add it to journal pages, then the stickiness is a good thing. Just add gel medium to the un-sticky parts.

You could also sew it to card fronts - just spit-balling some ideas here.

Oh some sort of luster or pealescent powder is a good idea.
I am not sure what I will do with them yet. Probably journal pages and ATC backgrounds.

Yes, in the tutorials I've seen the sticky bit has gotten brushed with shiny metallic powder which ends up looking really groovy. They are so neat to look at, little strips of amazingness. Very cool.

for a while now I have been making my own stencils on heavy scrapbook paper cutting them on my cricut.  It works fairly well.  You have to be careful because it is still paper and can tear. and I have to make sure I put layers of wax paper between each stencil because if they are the slightest bit wet they stick and tear when you pull them apart.

I just tried using mylar sheets.  I had to use the light chipboard setting to cut through the mylar but it worked great.  The stencils come out looking really nice and almost professional.  I can get 2-3 smaller stencils per one 12"x12" sheet of mylar making the cost somewhere between 40-60 cents per stencil.
