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 [...]

Using Art To Heal a Hurt

Video sharing how I used art to to heal a hurt that came from feeling very vulnerable.

Being vulnerable can hurt but when I have a way to process the feelings, it hurts less.  Whether I am working in an art journal or on a canvas or on a wood panel, it doesn't matter.  What matters is that I am creating.  There is something magical for me when I get paint on my [...]

Decided to play around on a scrap of cardboard with Seth Apter’s newest stencil

Words inspire me so you bet I was excited to play with Seth Apter's new stencil, Explore. It's loaded with words and lots of texture too.  For today's play, I'm using fancy fancy things...like cardboard from a box, a cosmetic sponge, and old scrapbooking paper. This is just one of many stops in a blog hop celebrating Seth's [...]

Couldn’t get sharks off the brain so they ended up in my art journal!  Captured it all on video too! Inspired by Discovery Channel’s Shark Week

What's swimming around in my head?  Sharks thanks to Discovery Channel's recent Shark Week.  Brought back all sorts of nostalgia for me since I remember when it all began.  Yes, I'm that old. I am amazed by these creatures...but it's not like I want to swim with them in the open seas.  I am a big [...]

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 [...]

Studio Tour

Welcome to my studio!  It's where I make my messes while having fun playing.  What's most important to me in my studio? Being able to spend more time playing and less time finding or cleaning. What you see is my attempt to keep supplies within easy reach and limit the effort needed to clean it up. [...]

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: [...]
