Sunday Sunny Gelli Fun

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for dropping by today - the weather here is amazing this weekend, so warm and sunny :-)

After seeing all the wonderful demo photos coming out of Ally Pally this weekend I was inspired to get my 4" round Gelli plate out for a play.

I made a few pages of prints on pages pulled out of my Seawhite journal. Then chose this one to use as a background for a birthday card.

The stencils are mostly from TCW with one by Andy Skinner I think. All the paints I used are Frescos in these colours: haystack, bougainvillea, turquoise, lavender and candy floss.

Here is the finished card, its 7 x7 inches:

The stamps are all from Paperartsy plate ELB30, except the sentiment which is from a Dina Wakley set.

A couple more photos from different angles:

I had fun making this, hadn't played with my Gelli plate for ages!

I am entering my card in the current Paperartsy challenge which is 'making marks' and you can find all the info about the challenge HERE

Thanks for looking,

Claire xx

Past, Present and Future

Hello and welcome to my blog today :-)

Last weekend I spent a lovely day at a workshop with Seth Apter hosted by Paperartsy. I haven't blogged my project yet - but I will soon!!

Seth taught so many techniques involving layering, stencilling, mark marking and various paint techniques. I wanted to practise what he showed us so have created this journal page in my small Dylusions journal:

I even remembered to take progress photos today - lots of them! So here we go:

Fun to see it evolving so clearly. All the paints used are Paperartsy Frescos in Zucchini, Caribbean Sea, South Pacific, Buff, Mahogany, Terracotta, Midnight and Copper.

The stencils are from a variety of people including Seth, Andy Skinner and TCW.

I stamped using the two new Lin Brown for Paperartsy sets (ELB29 and 30) and used Archival inks in Potting Soil, Orange Blossom and Cornflower Blue.

I also used white embossing powder, black pen, various white pens and I'm not sure what else lol!

Here are some other photos of my page:

The Paperartsy blog currently has a mark making challenge running which is open until next Sunday, the 18th Sept so click HERE for all the challenge info and to see what others have been making :-)

Thanks for stopping by today,

Claire xx
