New Mini Journals Made from Collaged Gelli Prints and Stamps

This week I created a series of four mini journals from Gelli print papers and stamping (of course). I used several pieces of my first endeavor of Gelli plate printing. I built the collage on some upcycled pieces of light weight card board using gel medium. See the beginning of this process here and hereAfter I collaged these papers I added colors of gouache and some bits of washi tape and stamping...well lots of stamping actually. Here are what the outside of the journal covers looked like before binding.

Here are the inside of the journal covers, that I made in the same process.

I then bound these mini journals with a small signature of just four pages in each. Also I stamped inside the pages so each or most of the pages would have some imagery already added.
I bound with a simple pamphlet stitch.

I am so pleased with these little gems. Nothing like stamping and collage to create some charming little journals. I get to use up my gelli prints and have more journals to fill.
