It’s Make Art Monday… I’m going to share one of the tabbed pages from the wonderful Haute Mess Art Journals! Before I created on the page, I had a bit of fun with Gelli plates! My 4th grade students are starting a project using the Gelli plates and learning about printmaking in my classroom so I thought I’d bring one home and have a little art making fun myself! The Haute Mess Acrylics work beautifully on the plate!
Here are some of the beautiful prints that I made during this process:
The Gelli plate is a gelatin based printing plate that you can reuse over and over. I love how the Haute Mess Acrylics work on this plate and how wonderful they transfer to paper! You will have endless possibilities and lots of papers for your journals, artwork and anything else your heart desires!
After my prints dried, I took a few and ripped them to create a finished page with.
Here is the process video that I made while printing and putting my finished journal page together. Enjoy!
I hope I’ve inspired you today to try printmaking with the Haute Mess Acrylics!
