Today is the Inspiration Conspiracy video hop! My video is a basic introduction to using a Gelli Arts plate with DIY tools.
I was inspired by the folded papers used as tools from this post at the Gelli Arts blog. It took about 30 minutes to make the tools with my scoreboard. But really, it's not difficult to make them. There are loads of tools you can make using cardboard and card stock.
Wallpaper seam rollers are available at hardware stores for a couple of dollars. I pop off the roller and wrap with rubber bands or stick on cut up craft foam. Pop the roller back on the handle and you have a mark maker.
In the video, I'm using Golden Fluid acrylics. Any acrylics will do. I've linked in the affiliate supply list other acrylic brands that I've used. Use whatever you have on hand. The glazing liquid will make your paints more transparent and increase the open time. It's not essential.
I'm looking forward to using these papers on another of those little flip out books. Stay tuned for that video :)
Here's the video. Enjoy! If you watch over at YouTube, you'll see the links and list for the rest of the hoppers.
