GelPrinted Book with GelliArts® 'Freedom'

Since I'm a bit obsessed with gel printing ( just a bit ;-)) lately, I am always looking for materials where to print on. In my opinion, until now, best surfaces where to gel print on are :
-1-Good quality white smooth cardstock (expensive, I know)
-2-Parchment paper ( I am partial to GelliArts® parchment sheets)
-3-Book pages

Essendo leggermente ossessionata con il gel printing ultimamente (ma solo leggermente, eh) sono sempre alla ricerca di materiali sui quali gellare. Dopo studi approfonditi sono arrivata a questa classifica:
1---Cartoncino ultraliscio di buona qualità (lo so, non è economico)
2---Carta velina ( la migliore e più resistente quella della GelliArts®)
3---Pagine di libro
The cover is made with gel printed parchment paper (here a video how to gel print and use parchment paper)
La copertina è fatta ricoprendo di carta velina gellata (qui un video su come fare)
And in this case I gel printed directly on book pages: you can do it, as long as you open the book  very well and push hard along the spine against the plate
E qui ho osato gellare direttamente sul libro: si può fare, aprendo bene il libro e premendo al centro bene sul gelli plate
I know I can make ArtJournaling, stamping, doodling etc...but I like so much these background pages that I decided to leave them as they are.
Sono pagine perfette per farci ArtJournaling, però mi dispiaceva troppo coprirle:
I love the variety! And I used just stencils and acrylic paint
Ogni pagina è cosi diversa, eppure sono gli stessi acrilici e stencils
With this I participate on MiniAlbumMakers challenge blog.

I think you're right, I just LOVE your pages like that... nothing more needed. Especially as you had the great idea to cut the edges of some of the pages so nicely, Gio!
Fabulous book and sample of the power of gelprinting!!!!

Wow!! Direttamente sul libro! :D Ma che spettacolo!!!!! Ogni pagina è una delizia per gli occhi, davvero un peccato scriverci sopra... magari solo una piccola etichetta.... ma piccola, eh! :D LOL Bellissimo come hai movimentato i bordi con i tagli e le linee nere!! Mi piace mi piace mi piace un sacco!!!!!

You don't ever need to apologise for sharing your amazing Gelli prints... this book is glorious. I love the different cut out shapes for each page spread, and the translucent paint layers look so amazing against the book text. Beautiful! Thanks so much for joining in with us at Mini Album Makers.
