Gelli Arts® - Printing with Leaves - 3 Ways


Hello and welcome to the Gelli Arts® blog!

It’s Birgit here and today I’m going to show you 3 ways of printing with leaves.
Because it’s fall and there is plenty of printing material available!


I love printing with leaves! It is very simple but also very satisfying as it is almost impossible to go wrong!

The only things you need are paper, acrylic paint and a good handful of leaves.


First start with printing a bunch of colorful backgrounds.


Then place a sheet of paper (same size as your printing paper) underneath your Gelli Arts® gel printing plate so you can line up your paper with that later.


Way 1 – single print:
Step 1:
Cover the plate with paint. Not too thick because then you will lose the details.


Step 2:
Create a composition with the leaves


Step 3: place a sheet of printer paper on top to remove all the 
paint around the leaves.



Step 4: remove the printer paper and the leaves.



Step 5: place a sheet of colorful background paper on top of the remaining paint and pull the print.



Way 2 – double print:
Repeat step 1 and 2 of the single print.

Step 3: Place a sheet of colorful printed background paper on top of the leaves. Make sure to line your paper up with the paper that is underneath the plate. Rub firmly, then remove the paper.






Step 4: remove the leaves.



Step 5: place the sheet you just printed back on the plate, lining it up again with paper underneath the plate. Pull the print.



Way 3 – ghost print:
Repeat step 1 to 4 of the single print.




Step 5: let the paint dry.

Step 6: apply a thin layer of paint on top of the dried paint.


Step 7: place a sheet of 
paper on the plate, rub firmly and pull the print.





Here are additional prints!  Enjoy!!









Thank you for watching! I hope you enjoyed the video and that you got inspired to go out and find yourself some beautiful leaves to play with!
