Create Vibrant Artwork with Gelli Plate



I love going through some of my older posts; they always inspire me... This post was originally posted on August 5 of 2015.  I hope you'll enjoy a look back at these beautiful, vibrant paintings!


I've been teaching an amazing group of women this summer.  One of them, Lesley, took one of my classes at The Ink Pad.  She contacted me in May, asking if I would come to Long Branch once a week and teach a group in her home.  I'm so glad I said yes!  It's been a great adventure, and I learned so much as I planned a new lesson for each of the six weeks.

Our last lesson was on Tuesday, and it seemed fitting to have a Gelli Plate Party!  None of these women had ever used the gelli plate before, and their excitement and joy was thrilling.  The paint and prints were flying!  All my Stencil Girl stencils were in the mix, plus a big favorite -- Terri Stegmiller's recent design for Stencil Club.

 We used our gelli prints to make illustrations inspired by African Masks, following the steps I used in this post to create a Ganesh Superhero.


Here is the preliminary work:





and three of the finished pieces.  Aren't they awesome!!!



Here's a picture of all the women at the conclusion of one of our earlier classes.  I have truly enjoyed working with them.


Here's my finished demo piece - inspired by Cecil the Lion and this editorial


 Maria McGuire's Greek Border stencil provided the perfect finishing touches.
