Working with GelliPlate

Two or three times a month, Carol and I get together to make a mess–whether it be with our GelliPlates, inspiration from Somerset Studio and Art Journaling magazines, or working in our art journals, we always have a blast while learning new things.  Here, Carol is working on her GelliPlate.  Let’s see what I’m up to…

Here you can see one of my Gelliprints and another Gelliprint in the works.  I love working with stencils.  Carol and I may have different styles and colours, but boy do we learn a lot from each other.  Carol’s go to for art journaling is Robyn McClendon and my go to is Carolyn Dube and Susan Rose.

I do sign up for the occasional on-line art workshop.  There is just too much to learn, and so little time to do it.  I’m still working full-time and trying to learn as much as I can when I’m home.  How many of you are familiar with the GelliPlate or even have one?  Let me know your successful and not so successful story.

Thanks for stopping by

Kiss my Ace

Hello friends!  I’ve been having lots of fun with my GelliPlate.  I get together with my girlfriend and we play all day.  I am particularly pleased with the look of Tennis Racquet Patent and Tennis Sentiments, set of 3.  I hear time and time again how stampers love Technique Junkies sarcastic and punny stamps.  I do too.

The shape of my yellow background works perfectly with Tennis Racquet Patent, don’t you think?

If my card captures your attention, you may be interested to know there is a Gotta Have it all Bundle.  Use code TJ10Beth for a 10% discount on your shopping cart.

Relax and Renew

Hello fellow stampers.  By the 25th of each month I have all of my TJ cards made for the following month.  Today I chose to post this particular card because I’m doing just that–relaxing, calming my mind, and renewing my spirit as I’m on vacation for the week.  So far it has been quite the whirlwind of a week–and it’s only Tuesday, LOL.

My daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters are down from Ottawa, and if luck wasn’t on our side, my son’s schedule has been free for the last two days, so my little chicks are together again.  Yesterday we all had a barbecue out at our trailer and today the boys went boating while my daughter and I went to Good Will.  Score!

Any guesses as to how my background was made?  It’s Gellipaper.  Cool, eh!?  I am having so much fun with my Gelliplate.  My camera has some samples of Gellipapers created from the 3+ hour workshop.

My card uses an August stamp release called Relax Your Body combined with Dancing Sprigs stencil.  These, and other items in your shopping cart, are 10% off just by using my code TJ10Beth.

Thanks for stopping by!

Memories sweet and fragrant

Memories sweet and fragrant reminds me of summers spent with my grandmother.  One of the things she liked to do was to take us mushroom hunting in the woods.

Believe it or not, my background was created using my GelliPlate.  My girlfriend and I get together to work on backgrounds and try new things.  For example, we spent an afternoon experimenting with kitchen products purchased at a thrift store.  We dipped parts of the item into black paint and pressed off black paint.  My favourite items were a 2″ mini kitchen grater and a potatoe masher. It’s safe to visit me for dinner because these items are strictly for artwork.

 

My background uses the Dancing Sprigs Stencil.  I just love how my Gelli paper turned out.  Stamped over top is Forest Floor.  You can get 10% off of these products, or any other product by using code TJ10Beth.

If these products intrigue you, you might be interested in our Gotta Have it All Bundle seen below.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week!
