leftover Gellis and notebooks full up of goodies

What do you do with your leftover Gellis?  I always have a pile of leftover prints, and keep them around for using in whatever??  Today in the art room I found an abandoned, partially finished origami wallet fold book made from a double sided Gelli print.  It needed a cover and a purpose, so it's now full of atcs created from random bits from my collage notebooks (more on those later).
Look at all those leftover Gelli prints--they WANT to be something!
 
The origami wallet fold book has four pockets, each containing an atc made with more Gelli leftovers, Altered Pages images, and rub-on sentiments.
Now for my organization tip.

Here's the thing--we have a baseball card store.  Okay, so we sell all kinds of sports cards and memorabilia, but the point is, I have an in with the fella that runs the joint, and he keeps me supplied in all sorts of plastic pages, the kind that fit in a three-ring binder.  The nine-pocket pages are perfect for holding the bits left from cut-up collage pages (not to mention ATCs--did you know that baseball cards and ATCs are the same size?), and the 8 1/2 by 11 inch pages of course hold the full sized sheets of collage images.
Have a wonderful Thursday!  
(P.S.--there are a couple more photos of the Gelli book up on my blog, if you'd like to see.)

  4. Well, I don't know if these were great--but I only needed small pieces, so it didn't matter! ;)

    The book was already made from a double sided Gelli, it was a pretty good one, I really like using the detailed paper doilies for masks, they make a good mark.
