First up I chose the color of acrylics I wanted to use and a stencil as well.
Using a brayer I added the Cocoa and Onyx (black) to the gelli plate.
Using my stencil I applied the Sunrise color to the plate.
Here is the pattern I achieved.
First used white card stock and pressed down on the plate.
Then I used tissue paper and applied to plate.
Then I applied tags to the plate.
Last but not least I pressed on kraft paper.

I decided to use the tissue paper on my journal page. I first ripped sections and using collage medium in Vintage I applied to the base of my journal page.
I then applied ripped book pages as well as ephemera to the journal page with the collage medium in vintage. The vintage color is nice because it provides an all over sepia color to your papers.
I had a piece of acetate by 7 Gypsies that I adhered to the top of my ephemera. The medium was still tacky so I applied Nuvo Copper Gilding Flakes.
I then burnished the gilding flakes off my page.
Using Distress Oxide Black Soot ink I distressed the edges and then spritzed water to give a worn and shabby look to the edges of the journal page.
Using a charcoal pencil I outlined the acetate as well as my title that I added to the page and then smudged with finger.
As a finishing touch as using black archival ink I used assorted mixed media background stamps here and there.
For the white cardstock I made this Father's Day card. The chipboard was embossed with UTEE in Gold.
For the kraft paper I created this layout to place in my antique photo album, I also decorated the page with the tags that were made with the gelli plate.
