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
