How To Use Your Gel Prints: Fish Coasters
Here's a fun idea for using your gel prints: fish coasters for your iced summer beverages! Follow Gelli Arts® artist Giovanna Zara's steps: Print or draw a fish template on paper. Trace and cut out the shape on your monoprints –twice- for the back and front. Add details with markers. Align the shapes together and insert into a laminator pouch. If you don’t have a laminator, you can cover them with large clear tape or contact paper. #gelplate #printingplate #monoprinting #gelprinting #gelliplate

Gelli Print Appliqué Accent Pillow
Gelli Print Appliqué Accent Pillow - I scanned my doodled canvas, printed it out and then traced the images I wanted cut with a brush tip Sharpie. I did this because I knew that scanning the canvas would create a lot of "noise" on the image making it difficult for the ScanNCut machine to identify the lines I actually wanted to cut. Once it was traced, I scanned it in the ScanNCut machine and saved it on a USB stick.
