A Colorful Gelli Print Party

It’s Time for a Change

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 [...]

Old paint lids become an upcycled tool for making patterns for Gelli printing®! Lots of info in the video!

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 [...]

What is the best paint for Gellii® printing?

What is the best paint for Gelli® printing?  Any acrylic paint will work and different paints behave differently.  Spoiler alert- there isn't one paint that is best.  Why? Because it depends on what look you want as well as what paints feel most comfortable to you. In the video, I compare 5 different acrylic paints: [...]

Dylusions Paints

It's the first of the month and that means Gelli® printing fun with the Colorful Gelli® Print Party!  I'm taking Dyluions Paints and  various texture making tools to turn a white box into a colorful box...you know how I am about white space. In the video, you'll see how I play around and create textures and patterns [...]

This month's Colorful Gelli Print Party is brought to you by a party...party fork that is!  One of the many reasons I love the Gelli Plate® is that you can use just about anything with it, including a plastic fork to create quick texture. I'm also mixing the Deco Arts fluid acrylics right on the 4" [...]

  I went round and round for this month's Colorful Gelli Print Party!  And that is a great thing!  Why? Because it was so much fun to play with the 4" round Gelli Plate. While playing around...who should show up? But a child!  Makes sense since I felt like a little kid myself! And he [...]

Video using Liquitex Paint Pens for Gelli Printing

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!   http://youtu.be/uSg9IT0l4Zw Watch Trying Liquitex Paint Markers on a [...]

Printing on Ornaments

  For this month's Colorful Gelli Print Party I'm taking some plain ornaments from boring to rainbow thanks to the Gelli Plate!  In just a few minutes and in only 2 layers, it looks like there was a lot more work put into these sleds I found buried in the back of a closet.   [...]

No Stress Play with Picasso In the Art Journal thumbnail

Who needs a deadline!  Who needs the stress of having to finish right now!  I sure don't!   But I used to think I was required to finish in one session.  Shockingly, that led to creativity crushing stress. I decided that stress was not what I wanted so just rewrote the rules and gave myself permission to work in [...]
