Do you like this idea but wonder what they heck you'd ever do with a completed masterboard? You are not alone! They seem confusing at first but I think that once you get started you'll find that even the smallest snippets are valuable little crafting supplies that you can find a delightful use for. I am enchanted with how my projects turn out every single time I include some masterboards. They are seriously fun bits for paper crafting.

This video shows gelli printing on tissue paper that is then torn into strips and pasted together onto a new board. I used deli paper which is a bit sturdier than tissue.

My prints, none of which are all that gorgeous on their own:


Torn into strips and glued to a new sheet of paper with gel medium.


Layered with stamps and stencils. At this stage I always think things look like a hot mess but I've learned to trust the process. You aren't aiming for a finished project here, only an interesting back ground.


Gold paint flecks sprinkled liberally over the whole sheet.


Cut up into 6X6 inch master boards, the trimmed off parts were the perfect ATC size.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

These are great and it is so good to see your process.

I don't do a whole lot of ATCs, where I use cut up masterboards is for cards/notes that I pop into craft packages,

It's so cool to see your process. I definitely want to layer mine up more/differently next time.
