First, an apology to Julia over at the Stamping Ground and all my fellow WOYWWers for not participating this week. I won't be here for the weekend and, as I am the slowest blog hopper on the planet ... I'm usually still visiting desks as late as Monday in an attempt to catch up ... better that I don't.
However, after watching a Barbara Gray (BG), ClarityStamps, masterclass on Create and Craft TV (recorded last weekend) I finally plucked up the courage to try gelli plate printing and I thought you might like to see the results. Of course, I didn't think, until after I was well into the experiment, to take photographs so what follows isn't a step-by-step documentary but it should give you some idea of the process.
And after all that, I now have a pile of patterned card just waiting to be used to make projects ... I just have to think about exactly how.
As I said at the top, I'm away for the weekend ... to Aberdeenshire. It's my son's birthday on Friday so we are going to help celebrate. It's raining up there today so I hope it cheers up and the sun comes out for our visit.
In the meantime, I have some packing to do and I might even find some time to sneak into the craft room and do something with one or two bits of those gelli prints :)
Hope you have all had a lovely day, whether WOYWWing or not, and happy crafting,
