Friday’s Spotlights on Fun
Have a Play on the Gel Plate
Ceri Griffiths needs some new 12 x 12 backgrounds and brings us along for the ride! You’ll learn some of his favorite color-bringing techniques, along with his trademark “kiss” method of briefly touching a part of the paper on the gel plate for a small spark of contrast or bit of interest.
He uses these stencils and stamps for finishing touches on the surfaces of his new backgrounds:
- Broken Bark Stencil Mask by Ceri Griffiths
- Little Leaves Stencil Mask by Ceri Griffiths
- Peas in a Pod Stencil by Ceri Griffiths

Sunday’s Creatives in the Spotlight
Using Gel Prints – Keep Going With Your Art!
Jackie Schomburg-Abstract Art & Creative Wellness channel: Jackie takes quite the stack of beautiful gel prints from some PM Artist Studio stencils and her own materials on hand and creates mixed media collage work in her art journal. I recognized these stencils used on many of her papers:
- Vintage Paris Abstract Map Stencil
- Rune Blocks Stencil Mask
- Prayer Wheels Stencil Mask
Collage Tip: If you want something for sure to show through at the end, add it at the end. Don’t start with it. Otherwise you’ll spend your whole painting tiptoeing around it!
