Galaxy Tags by Gelli Arts® Artist Sara Ferret

Hi! It’s Sara here. Today is my first project to share on the Gelli Arts® blog and I’m so excited.

I have made some galaxy tags with the Gelli Arts® x Jane Davenport gel printing plate.

Watch my video to see my process:

First, I made a lot of backgrounds on the tags, all with neon acrylic paint. I’m using the Art Printing plates from Carabelle Studio to create some easy drawings/texture in the background.

When I have made enough tags, I cut some circles from cardstock with two different size punches.

We will use these as masks in the next step.

After that, I put some black acrylic paint on the Gelli® plate and place my circle masks directly on the plate.  I then place my tags I made over the circles and roll my brayer over the tags to pick up that black paint. You can start to see that "galaxy" effect starting to come out!

Next, I free stitched with my sewing machine around the circles and the borders.

Now we can really create the galaxy effect with some splatters of paint in the black parts. I used Posca markers but you can use other things as a old toothbrush or a brush with white acrylic paint.

I always like to add some embellishments, so I used the sticker book from Tim Holtz to add some sentiment to my art work.

I hope you enjoy the video, and if you create some galaxy tags inspired by this project please tag me Instagram @sara_ferret and tag @gelliarts as well. I can't wait to see them all!

Happy printing!
