Book Binding and Gelli Printing

 Like many others who have discovered the joys of Gelli printing, I have accumulated a large collection of beautiful printed papers.   Lately I'm using them in combination with bookbinding to create unique covers and end papers.
I'm printing with acrylic on paper that is heavy and durable enough to make good book covers, and bonding them to book board.   Above is a recent example, and you can find more on my Etsy Shop.
The end papers are also Gelli printed using coordinating colors.   When you generate your own decorative papers, your artwork takes on a new level of originality.  In addition, the whole process of Gelli printing is so much fun !
Enjoy and explore different ways of using your prints.
