from this blog for a while, it seems like a very very long time but in reality is about 6 weeks. Trying to catch up from my buying trip to Las Vegas and the recent guest teachers we have had, along with designing new classes and remodeling the store has really whittled down the time I have had available to manage this blog and make Art. I miss it. . .
In the few minutes I had spare I have managed to have some fun with my Gelli Plate making some more prints and using some of the papers to make a couple of mini books.
I love Gelli Plate Printing, I am obsessed
Here are some images of what I have been up to
Some recent prints
I used the 6×6 Gelli plate and decided to fold three of the prints in half. Using a simple pamphlet stitch with hemp to bind the book. I then stamped various images and added some quotes to complete this little book.
Here is a look at the cover.
I love this quote stamp by Tim Holtz
Here is one of the interior pages
The heart shapes are punched from another Gelli Print
I stamped this mushroom image and then colored with pencils, adding a quote I made on my label printer. I used Gel medium to glue the sticker down.
Center of book
Brush and Pencil stamps are by Impression Obsession
Here is another view of the book
and here are some playing cards I am altering using the Gelli Plate
I hope all the images have made up for the long time between posts.
I think I am back on track time wise so will post again soon,
until then go make something !
