Gelli Plate

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: [...]

Prilled to Share!

I'm Prilled to share my latest guest post over at CreateMixedMedia!  That's not a typo...but I am prone to typos.  I am using Prills on a Gelli® print as I share how I embellished and built up a print.  Check it out over at CreateMixedMedia.com! And...just a reminder...the survey (and the giveaway that goes with it) [...]

Video using one stencil three ways with a Gelli Plate®

  Is it a reverse print?  Is it a negative print?  Whatever you call it-  you can create very different looks from just one stencil. I'm using a Gelli Plate® to quickly get my new stencil, Arched Aqueducts, loaded with paint. In the process I get a bonus print with a great grungy vibe!  I'm giving [...]

Video sharing how free and playful creating artfully can be thanks to a 5 year old

I was fortunate to be able to watch a master create recently.  She created with abandon. Pure freedom from an inner critic.  Freedom from judgement.  Who was she?  A  5 year old! My entire artistic journey has been about getting back to that place. She never asked if it was right.  She never asked if it [...]

You Can Never Lose True North

Video of an art journal page that reminded me of a very important message

Art journaling has such power for me.  Why? Because sometimes it reminds me of important messages from time to time. And that is exactly what happened today. Notice her chin.  There's no paint there and that is rather unusual since this was a print from a fully loaded Gelli Plate.  And then I stamped right over [...]

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 [...]

  There is one important thing to remember when Gelli printing with words.  It's a biggie.  And I forget it all the time.  How could I forget something so important?  I get into a Gelli printing zone and my brain turns off and lets me create from the heart. What's the important thing I forget? [...]
