Let’s Play Using a Little Gelli Plate® and a Big Stencil

Video Using a Little Gelli Plate® and a Big Stencil for Happy Art Play Let's Play, a link party where you can be inspired and be inspiring!

What am I sharing for this week’s Let’s Play link party?  Plop, plop, but no fizz fizz, but oh what a relief play is…okay I might be a little slap happy from the play…As I was playing with a little Gelli Plate® and a stencil, I got the most wonderful thrill plopping it right on the paper. In the video you’ll see me start out with my thinking brain and then my play brain takes over once I plop it down!

Watch Using a Little Gelli Plate® and a Big Stencil on YouTube.

Now you’ve seen my play….let’s see yours!  Head down to the link party below to share what you’re creating!

The deli paper used to clean off the Vintage typewriter alphabet stencil is a bonus treat of the play…maybe this will end up in an art journal soon.


Here’s what the big piece looks all finished.  I might cut it up for a page in an art journal or anything else I use paper for but right now I am just enjoying it the way it is!

    FUN, BIG FUN. Now that my craft fair table is set up it’s time to make some Christmas wrap, woohoo. xox

    This looks so much fun! Will have to try it with my underpaper. Perhaps use it as gift wrap?

      It would make fantastic gift wrap Zsuzsa and so fast to get so much covered!

    What is the giant paper you are using as your blotter paper?

    I love watching your videos ?
    They always make me smile no matter what my day has been like.
    Hopefully I’ll get to play soon and I’ll add my own picture to the mix 🙂

    Buying a gelli plate and making gelli prints is on my list of things to do in 2016. I appreciate your tutorials as I watch them in anticipation of creating them myself.
