Gelli Arts® Gel Printed acrylic shapes

Hi
Today I want to share a short inspiration video with you. I got some acrylic shapes the other day from a friend who thought I could do something fun with them and for me any white or clean surface could do with some color, print and patterns! 






First I prepared all the acrylic shapes with clear gesso and let it dry. That way the paint will not peel off that easy. I’m using the 4” 4” round Gelli® Printing Plate for this project, but you could use any size and shapes Gelli® Printing Plate. To add color I’m using GelliArts® Premium Acrylic Paint in various colors + Gold acrylic paint and for patterns in the print I’m using Gelli Arts® mini printing tool and punchinella. When I was happy with the backgrounds on the acrylic shapes I stamped various designs on them with black ink and red paint. All the stamps are designed by Birgit Koopsen for Carabelle Studio. Finally added the metal and magnet and this is how it turned out.
