Video showing what a round Gelli Plate can do -so many many things!

Would the 6" round Gelli Plate be much different than the big one? I wondered...I wasn't sure until I played with it.  It is different! The size feels so different than the 8" plate.  And thanks to the size, what I could do with it in my art journal blew my mind.  Take a peek at [...]

  I've been waiting and waiting for these!  I've been just about stalking the websites waiting for them...lol  I just put them in my cart - can't wait to play with Dyan Revealy's new Dylusions paints!  And those colors -they are my happy colors!  Want some too?   They've got them here.  

This is what happens when I am left unattended too long...had a hard time keeping a straight face for this one as I shared 5 bits of wisdom I've learned or I should say am still learning in the art studio. If I could remember these in my daily art practice it would make a world of [...]

As I stood in front of a plain and boring wall, my inner teenager hijacked my thoughts.   Total rebellion against the gray cement.  This wall needed some color and did it ever get some color! That first round of color was empowering.  The second and third were exhilarating.  I couldn't have stopped if I [...]

Leftovers.  I hated them as a kid.  Especially when my parents would mix everything all together to make dinner.  Now, I love leftovers. Not the kind you eat, but the artful kind in the studio.  The kind of leftovers that make me try something that I hadn't thought about before, like the neon with the darker teal [...]

Step by step art journaling a stenciled face with a big Oops with a BIG message

While art journaling, this scar wasn't a mistake, it was and Oops (Outstanding Opportunity Presenting Suddenly). And it had a very strong message for me. Scars aren't always seen but every person has them.  Maybe they shouldn't be hidden but shared instead.  Maybe they aren't something "ugly" but a reminder of the journey.   Random stenciling [...]
