It’s time for a change. It’s been over 2 years of monthly Colorful Gelli Print® Parties. What fun it has been but its time has come. Now don’t worry, I’m not stopping my Gelli® printing play! There will still be videos and blog posts with that little tool of joy. It just won’t be on the first of each month. It might be in the middle or the end or the beginning or all three. It just depends on where my muse leads me.
If you’ve missed any of the parties, you can find them all here. You can also find this under freebies at the top of the page.
There is also a getting started with the Gelli Plate® page too for those who are new to printing. It includes videos like this one where I share about the tools and how to pick the “right” size plate and brayer. Hint…there isn’t a wrong answer and I share why!

A frequent question I get is how can I keep from making mud when I am monoprinting. It’s easier to show than tell, so I made a downloadable video and pdf cheat sheet that you can have right next to you next you are printing.
How do you get this free downloadable video and pdf? It’s my way of saying thank you for becoming a newsletter friend. Just click here or on the button to get signed up for a twice a month or so newsletter that always has a downloadable goodie or exclusive video or other treat inside.
Yes, I want a free video all about Mixing Color on the Gelli Plate®!
This is a technological marvel that involved intense engineering to create a pattern making tool for the Gelli Plate®. Okay…no engineering…just gluing. It might not be fancy technology but it is just as much fun when it comes time to make a pattern! I repurposed old paint lids and cardboard then let myself build up layers on my papers.
What color did I want? I couldn’t decide so I grabbed the rainbow. Turns out I didn’t use it all…but it’s nice to have the option.
In the video, I share how I built the very advanced tool and how the layers of color build up. The tongue was tied as I talked, but that was just an Oops, an opportunity for you to see how my mind and mouth communicate some days…which isn’t very well!

If you’re new to the Gelli Plate®, I have a getting started page with all sorts of information for you here.
Here’s all I needed to upcycle and repurpose the old paint lids destined for the trash…cardboard, glue of some kind, and a way to spread the glue.
Here are the supplies I used. Some of these links are affiliate links which means I get a small percentage. It doesn’t cost you anything extra and you are helping me keep this blog and my videos ad free! Thank you- I don’t like ads any more than you do!
Here are the papers you saw me create by building up layers in the video. These will make great papers for collaging! Or maybe I will rubber stamp on them! Or maybe I will use them for an art journal background!
I am sharing all the heroic details of how I saved the life of a pen in my guest post at CreateMixedMedia.com Okay…it wasn’t heroic at all. But I did prevent a pen from being ruined. Video waiting over there for you too! Check it out!
