Gelli Printing on Brown Bags

A Gelli Plate® and stencils make plain brown bags colorful goodie bags

The Gelli Plate® turned plain brown lunch bags into colorful goodie bags for my upcoming workshops at Stampaway. I played with some of new stencils that were just released from StencilGirl - and I'm giving a set of them away.  You can get entered to win here. I just went to town with all sorts [...]

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 [...]

I started  with a Gelli print® and then built up layers of stencils and simple doodling to create a mixed media paper

Ever have a Gelli print® that leaves you feeling blah?  The kind that are fine or okay...that is such a so-so place to be. I don't like so-so.  So what do I do? I say O.O.P.S. This Outstanding Opportunity Presenting Suddenly was loaded with opportunity.  If I didn't care about it, I was free to just play with [...]

Creating Stenciled Papers

I’ve created a video showing how I used Gelli® printing as a starting point to create stenciled papers

What can you do with the papers you make Gelli® printing?  You can build on the colors and lines already there with a stencil to create your own custom artful patterned papers.  Something strange has been happening to me...I have been having fun with subtle coloring. Not sure what is happening, but when the muse [...]

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) [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

I'm popping up in all sorts of places lately....I've just wrapped up filming 4 videos with Northlight and I'll be sharing all the little secrets like who scared me the most next week on the blog.  And I'll have a few extra stories from it just for my newsletter friends.  If you don't want to miss [...]
