Fabulous Fall with GelliArtsⓇ and Plaid Paints

Hi there

Today I want to share a fabulous project with you, actually it's called Fabulous Fall and it's made for the collaboration with GelliArtsⓇ and Plaid Paints. I made a mobile out of mono print on fabric and a gift bag to have it in. 


Products from GelliArtsⓇ and Plaid Paints used for this project



Below you'll find the video and step by step pictures on how I made did project. Enjoy




When I made the gel prints I used an acrylic block together with the GelliArtsⓇ 4" circle printing plate as a stamp. I used various tools to create texture to the print. 

I made prints on both sides of the fabric, so when the mobile moves there is no back or front on the circles.


When all the prints where done, I made the fabric a bit steadier with Stiff spray, then I cut every circle out.


A thin wire is what holds these circles together, beads help holding the construction steady so the circles don't move up or down on the wire.




Finished project, ready to give away or hang up in the window or in the roof.




Mobiles hanging from the roof and because it was hard to get a good picture of the vibrant colors I'm adding a detail pictures of some of the mobile elements






Check the GelliArtsⓇ blog at to see how you can win great products from both companies.

Peace by Piece - art journal


This picture was taken in 2014 when visiting Muir woods  outside San Fransisco. I made the spread in an Art journal where I only create AJ pages with photos included. The page is made at the cottage, where I have limited amount of art supply and that is a big help to get the creative juice going.

Gelli Arts® Gel Printed acrylic shapes

Hi
Today I want to share a short inspiration video with you. I got some acrylic shapes the other day from a friend who thought I could do something fun with them and for me any white or clean surface could do with some color, print and patterns! 






First I prepared all the acrylic shapes with clear gesso and let it dry. That way the paint will not peel off that easy. I’m using the 4” 4” round Gelli® Printing Plate for this project, but you could use any size and shapes Gelli® Printing Plate. To add color I’m using GelliArts® Premium Acrylic Paint in various colors + Gold acrylic paint and for patterns in the print I’m using Gelli Arts® mini printing tool and punchinella. When I was happy with the backgrounds on the acrylic shapes I stamped various designs on them with black ink and red paint. All the stamps are designed by Birgit Koopsen for Carabelle Studio. Finally added the metal and magnet and this is how it turned out.
