Wanna fall in love? and WOYWW

I mean fall in love with an art medium, that is… Well check out Gelli Arts! Monoprinting without a Press. With it I have made lots of colorful, textured prints. So many that I made this nifty art journal so that I can further embellish my prints! It is fun, fast and totally addictive.


There are tons of tutorials all over the Google & the YouTube so I won’t bore you with the how-to’s of it. Just know that if you are interested in something to express yourself creatively, this is a winner. I am not affiliated with the product and get no kick-backs for my enthusiasm. I just love wonderful products that aid creativity.


Above is my “Slap a heart on it” series. Some of these babies will make it into our shop to be adapted to art prints, iPhone & iPad cases & laptop skins. Maybe even pillows, totes, t-shirts & hoodies depending on how well they adapt to the product. If you are interested, head on over to our website and sign up for our awesome newsletter. Or drop by the shop to see what we already have going on. Free shipping thru Sunday!

Here’s a fabulous collaboration that my partner Stephanie did with her daughter, Bizzy. The design was inspired from pencil drawings out of Bizzy’s sketchbook. I feel lucky to have such a talented mother-daughter duo as part of my team.

Peace for Bizzy collection

Oh yeah, since the top photo is my workdesk, I’m linking to WOYWW which is Stephanie’s sissy, Julia’s blog. I’m tellin’ ya, this is a talented family.

  1. Wow Dori – am thrilled to see your name on the link list! And of course, the Gelli plate is almost the perfect medium for you – I absolutely love the journal..so much more to it than just random ‘try this try that’ approach. So I’ve enlarged your photos as much as I can.. luscious ink colours in the caddy at back…I need to see more!!

  2. I have read lots about this Geli art but have not yet tried it – I might have to give in soon. I’m loving what you have done xxx
    Happy WOYWW 🙂

  4. I just got my gelli plate out today. I think I might need to practise a bit more judging by your samples!! But was good messy fun. Happy WOYWW Cindy #95

  5. Dori, I love it! OMG!!!! You have been busy! I’ve ordered mine and can’t wait now for it to arrive. Boxes or no, I’m diving in! [well I will have to go through boxes to find my paints!].

  6. I am in love with gelatin monoprinting myself (I don’t have a gelliplate but instead make plates from gelatin myself.) Do you know Linda Germain? http://printmakingwithoutapress.blogspot.com She is a pro and has all kinds of youtube tutorials… she wrote an article in the art/crafts magazine FEATURING about monotype printing too.. great lady! Happy ~ belated ~ woyww and a hug from Holland. Marit #109

  7. OK, here’s the thing, first I am apologizing for not having been around, but I have been uber busy and now I am going to have the audacity to ask you to do a favor for me ( shakes head, I’m shameless ) But I am in a contest and sad to say but it’s the truth, it’s a popularity vote, so here’s the favor…would you be so kind to go over and vote for me? I sure would appreciate it from the bottom of my pitiful heart! lol (vote for the camera, please ) (http://www.genuinelyjanestudios.com/genuinelyblog/gjs-design-a-book-contest-top-three-finalists-announced/ waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥ #19
