Layering on gel prints: easy ways to embellish!

Why add some layering on gel prints? Because if you don’t they are just backgrounds with no purpose in life ๐Ÿ™‚
Well, mine are anyway because I only use simple techniques to create them!
If you missed the videos showing you how I created those gel prints, watch my Easy Gel Print Session and Gel Printing with Dylusions Inks & Shimmer Sprays.

Now let’s embellish those babies!! It’s so easy… Just grab whatever you have layering around (brush, paints, crayons, stamps, stencils, etc) and add art marks all over in random patterns.

Don’t forget to leave me a comment below with your feedback, and what you like to do with your gel prints, I’d love to hear!
I’ll show you how I turn mine into a gel print art journal very soon ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve already shared all my finished pages from that journal on my Instagram here.

Layering on gel prints Tutorial Mimi Bondi ST80


  1. Thank you Mimi .So very inspiring. Just love all those gorgeous bright colours. Going to get out my paints and stencils .

    • Mimi Bondi

      That’s what I like to hear!! Go play Deb ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much for your lovely comment xx

  2. Oh, this is really embarrassing! I noticed the stencil was the same size as the large Stencil Girl stencils, so went and checked there, and found it. Then, it slowly dawned on me, that I actually had it! Not only had I forgotten I’d bought it, but I’d also forgotten I’d even seen it before! Oops! I blame it on chemo brain. 3 rounds of chemo (so far) have shot my short term memory.

      I’m glad you managed to find it, and BONUS, you had already had it! It was a sign to say it was time for it to be used at last hahaha ๐Ÿ™‚ It happens to most of us, don’t you worry – I recently bought a corner puncher only to find the exact same one hanging in a corner of my studio not long after ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. Hi Mimi
    The link in your newsletter takes you to the gel printing using Dylusions sprays, instead of this page. Just thought I’d let you know.

    Lovely colourful papers. Where is that paisley design stencil from? I’d love to get a paisley stencil, but hadn’t seen any before.

    • Mimi Bondi

      Thanks for letting me know! Too late to change it but I’m sure my followers are smart enough to figure it out ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Good question… I can’t remember but I’ll let you know if/when I do ๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. You are so inspiring!! You really give a feel that “I CAN do this!” can’t wait to play!

    • Mimi Bondi

      Ahhh thank YOU so much! I’m so glad I can inspire you Bobbie, hope you have fun with your gel plate ๐Ÿ™‚ xx mimi

  5. I love all your creativity and work. And you website is super gorgeous pretty and inspirational. I’m working on mixed media, learning let’s say.
