Creativity has always been one of my passions in life. How do we as artists and designers stay connected with our creative center? We always hear to think outside of the box and let your creativity soar. I'd like to think that these posts on this blog may accomplish that for some of you. By sharing my thoughts and experiences I'm sure that it will inspire me as well.

Gell Printing Part 2
In my day job as an art teacher I have been showing my students a few of the You Tube videos from Gelli Arts. We look for inspiration in so many places and for some of my students I like to use You Tube, in this day and age they all have access to technology and probably watch you Tube but how many of them use it for educational purposes? I've shown a few of the more recent videos where Joan is using the Catalyst Wedge Tools and my students are fascinated. I'm generating interest in the gel plates that I ordered to try with my students. I could only afford 6 plates so we will need to share them. I'm sure that my students are going to love the process and so do I. Maybe my enthusiasm for the project is showing and they are catching the vibe. I still haven't printed anything that I am in love with although I did like the ones that I'm showing above more so than the others. I'm sure that I will eventually print something that I am happy with but so far feel like such a newbie at the process that I am devouring educational information found on blogs. I would however recommend purchasing a plate and trying your hand at it. So fun.
