I recently participated in a napkin swap. While preparing to mail 48 napkins off, I pulled off the back two layers. Of course, I couldn't just throw them out.
I thought I would stamp on them, like I do white tissue papers. But while Gelli® printing, I grabbed a stack of 48 napkin back layers to try to pull a print. I figure that I had nothing to lose since the Gelli® plate, stencils and brayer are easy enough to clean up. Pictured below are a few of the napkin scraps that I had leftover from my printing session. However, I did leave the two back layers together when I pulled the prints to help make it less delicate and then I tore them apart to soften the edges and removed the back layer.
I took the pieces and used them to enhance or finish Gelli® prints that I had done the day before. I found them easy to print on like deli paper, but much easier to adhere to other projects than the deli paper which often doesn't want to adhere. This allowed me to move thempermission to use the Gelli® or Gelli Arts® trademark, which is owned by Gelli Arts® LLC around and get the exact placement I wanted. I continued to collage and embellish my pieces shown below.
