Video using Liquitex Paint Markers for Gelli Printing

Join me for a Colorful Gelli Print Party!

It’s experimentation time!  For this month’s Colorful Gelli Print Party, I am playing with Liquitex Paint Markers on the Gelli Plate.  The paint pens are water based acrylic paint (at least I think they are) so I wondered if they would work for Gelli printing.  And they did!

They ended up creating a wood cut feeling, but in lots of colors.


This was a completely different feeling for me than using paint on the Gelli Plate.  There is so much more precision that can be easily obtained by using a marker instead of a paint brush…at least the way I use a paint brush!

Art Ideas to Silence Your Inner Art Critic

I’ve got a new guest post over at CreateMixedMedia!   Stop on over there to check out my conversation with that voice in my head…and how I even had a little fun freaking that voice out at the end!

Maria McGuire is a doodler.  She can make magic with a pen and she loves to create stencils that have spaces made for doodling.  I am not a doodler by nature but I have found doodling to be a bit infectious, in a good way!

I started by getting the Doodle It Dream Landscape stencil in my art journal with spray ink.

I am easily distracted, especially when I turn off my thinking mind…and you’ll see how it shows up in the video while I am adding paint to the pattern.

Maria doodles with patterns but I am more of a word doodler, so I filled in some shapes with words.  I think that stems just a bit from the fact that I don’t have her pen work patience.



I have a sneaky suspicion that I will be adding more more doodling to this in the future. That’s one of the many reasons why I love art journaling – a page never has to be finished in one sitting!
