Is there any interest in making these art journals using Gelli prints?
It's super easy. I just made a small one this morning.

Basically you gather a bunch of Gelli prints the same size, fold them in half so the print is on the inside, the use double sided tape (could use glue probably ) and stick the folded pages together. My little book was 4"x5.5" but I was think we could maybe do 5x7 and say a minimum of 15 Gelli prints plus cover.

Here are a couple of my sample pages. I havent made the cover yet. And my pages are definitely not lined up as neat as in the video so dont think you have to be perfect!



Then you can use the journal to draw in, collage, journal, etc.
heres a sample page where I started a doodle

This might be fun. Does it have to be all gelii  prInts, can we stick some dloillies or other papers in just a few here & there?

I think what I'll do is say you have to to have 15 (or 10 or 25, TBD) Gelli prints to fold for the book. That and the cover is required and the main basis of the swap. But you can optionally add in other bits as along as the 2 main criteria are met. And knowing you may not get that type of book in return
