Gelli-Plate Prints

Many of you know how much I LOVE to print with my Gelli-Plate!

When Carla Sonheim announced that she was going to teach a NEW online class on How to use more of your Gelli-Plate, I immediately signed up!  🙂

The class starts today, so if you want to learn more about it, check out her online class at

I’d been wanting to purchase the larger 9 x 12 inch size Gelli-Plate so I splurged when Dick Blick Art Supplies was having a recent sale.


I decided to do a test drive (so to speak) of my new Gelli-Plate so I made these prints using Golden fluid acrylic paints, stencils, leaves and household items:

I have A LOT more prints but these were a few of my favorites.

Which one do you like best?

Cheers! 🙂

  1. You are going to have so much fun with this Jill! I like using deli paper but I have also used tissue paper to create my own designs and then have glued them as backgrounds for people and animal portraits. At this time of the year, you can use different foliage on your gelli plate too. Check Lucy Brydon’s wonderful paintings with gelli plate. She also offers a course, which I took, on her website. Cheers!

    • Hi Louise, I like to print on deli paper too. I will have to look on your blog to see how you used them as backgrounds. I did use some leaves in my prints. I will check out Lucy Brydon’s art, thanks Louise! 😃🍂🎨

    • Thank you Jodi, I think you would love it too! 💙 But I understand about having to stay focused since you have an upcoming show to prepare for! 😃 Maybe you can take the class in the future. I think kids of all ages, including myself would like the animal books we will be making. 😍 Love ya too, Jodi! 😘💕

  7. My daughter got me a gelli plate for Christmas and I have yet to have a chance to try it! But I am always inspired by your results. Maybe next year….(K)
