Happy New Year, everyone. New Year’s Day is a family day for us. The holiday craze rush is over and it’s time to chill and enjoy the final day of my vacation.
Boy, what a great week I had. I tried to get in my studio as much as I could. I did manage to finish up my online class, “Buttons n’bellishments” and have it ready for Joggles in February to start the workshop. Please check it out and join us.
Now, I don’ t know a better way to start off the year than by having a party. A Gelli Plate Party, that is. Carolyn Dube is the instigator on this one. Go to her blog to find out the deets and check out her video HERE. She’s already on Day 2.
This is my first take on the Gelli Plate. I got myself one for Christmas. Thank you, Judy! Lots of fun ideas rolling through my head. I mean, really, where does it end? I had to cut down the video a bit, cuz I just couldn’t stop my self. So, I took some still shots to show you my results at the end. Carolyn warned me. But, I’m safe now.
Wasn’t that fun? I hope you enjoyed that. I can only imagine even getting more creative the more you play. I love the imperfections. I tried to use my already printed sheets to create more layers instead of always using a new one. I was groovin to Bruno Mars in the beginning, so that’s the reason for my dancing papers.
So, I had a pile of Wausau paper and many craft paints that were just sitting around my studio for years. Wondered what I was going to do with them eventually. And then they invented the Gelli Plate. See that, I had them sitting there for a reason. Love when that happens.
Love to hear back from you. Let us know if you’ve “gellied” lately.
Thanks for stopping by.
