September’s Colorful Gelli Print Party!

September's Colorful Gelli Print Party with Carolyn Dube The party is open all month long so stop by and link up what you've been making with the Gelli Plate!


Join me for a Colorful Gelli Print Party!September is shaping up to be a month full of fun!  So many of my projects are coming together this month and there are milestones to celebrate!  Stay tuned- there is lots coming this month! First up- it’s a bonus month for the Colorful Gelli Party!  Not 1 video but 2!  I had so much fun playing I just couldn’t help myself!

I know I am sounding like a broken record but I was blown away by all the great prints that linked up last month!  I have been so sparked by what people are sharing!  Thank you so much for playing along and being a part of the party!

September's Colorful Gelli Print Party with Carolyn Dube The party is open all month long so stop by and link up what you've been making with the Gelli Plate!

On to the videos!

The first video shows how I used one stencil over and over again to build up the colors in this print. I lined up the stencil imperfectly to create the layers. Don’t worry, there isn’t any measuring!

The stencil I am playing with is called Stitch a Circle by Maria McGuire for StencilGirl Products.  You might recognize Maria from our Artsy Fartsy adventures!



You can watch the video on YouTube at A Colorful Gelli Print Party for September.

The 2nd video shows how I used one of the prints to make the art journal page above.  I even colored the background of the page with the Gelli Plate!  I was so eager to play, I actually forgot to get a photo of the paper before I started cutting!

Keep your eyes open for the Oops- once again I am grateful for my Oops!

Transform Your Tape a worskshop by Carolyn Dube

And I just had to use my tape from newest workshop in the video- it matched too perfectly for me to keep it a secret any longer! So now you know my next workshop will be all about tape!  Thanks to some fast work by the great people at iCreateFlix- my workshop button is up in time for this month’s part- so it doesn’t have to be a secret!  You can check it out here!  It’s on sale for $30 until Sept. 15th (when the workshop starts)!

You can watch the video on YouTube at Using Gelli Prints in an Art Journal

In case you’re wondering, the pens I used were  Posca Metallic– just what I needed for my journaling!  The Dylusions journal goes flat so nicely for use with the Gelli Plate too!

Join me for a Colorful Gelli Print Party!Thank you to everyone who linked up for August’s party!  Lots of amazing prints and ways to use the prints!   If you haven’t seen them yet- take a look at the August’s Colorful Gelli Print Party!   Now on to this month’s party.  It is open all month!

    Hi, Carolyn. I’m very interested in your tape workshop. I wanted to see the supply list before purchasing the class, to see if I might already have some of the supplies, but was unable to access it from your iCreateFlix page. Any help you can provide would be great!

      You make a great point Sherry! I just created page for the workshop and it has the entire supply list but I encourage you to use what you have before buying- substitutions are often amazing! You can find it at http://carolyndubeartworkshops.com/?page_id=891

  • LaurieMo September 1, 2013, 1:09 pm

    Am I being blindo? I found the tape workshop signup but not the gelli class signup…is it available yet or am I just too over-eager? LOL

  • Stempelwolfanne September 1, 2013, 3:46 pm

    I looooove the page with the ghostprints. Awesome stencil.

  • aimee September 3, 2013, 10:01 am

    love!! I gotta get on the gelli print train… I keep saying it and now I have to do it! xo

    Just opened my newsletter. Your SPARK is gorgeous. My fist thought was “look at all the colorful matches” which I felt was a play on Spark In any case you are amazing!!!

    I tried using the link to connect here but it wouldn’t take my uploaded photo or url. Not sure why. Looks like a great idea though. I have been printing with a gelli plate for quite some time now and it is very mysterious thing! You just never know what you are going to get, do you?

    • Carolyn September 8, 2013, 9:58 am

      Sorry it wasn’t working! Maybe the Mr. Linky server was struggling. I agree, the Gelli is a wonderful tool!

  • susie carranza studio September 11, 2013, 3:19 pm

    how fun – i just linked up. what a great way to see lots of gelli printing action! i’ve been addicted since i started using mine in june. the gelli plate adds SO much dimension & texture to my artwork.

  • Beverly G September 11, 2013, 11:52 pm

    Missed last month, but a little bit of junk mail inspired me so I just couldn’t miss this month. Good luck with the new tape class. As always great entries here to get lots more inspiration.

  • Mary Anne September 13, 2013, 5:52 am

    Yippee! Finally got a bigger plate and having fun with it. Still playing with fun foam to make tools, and now looking at the party posts with an eye towards bigger plate prints. So much to explore….

    Happy September 🙂
