Gelli plate workshop ..

Good evening , I have just got home from today's workshops at C.J. CardCraft in Edgeley, Stockport...
Thanks to all the lovely ladies and gentleman who came to play.
We made some backgrounds, and used Clarity Stencils to make a Christmas card.
( thanks Maria, this is inspired by you.)
I just added some colour to this one with Spectrum Noir pencils.
Just simple one colour...
Then we had a play with Embossing folders ....they are great to use on the Gelli plate....
Here is a closer look.
Plus this one..
And again, a closer look..
The butterflies are made from the copier paper that we used to clean our Brayer......oh yes Billy Brayer came out to play today ...
I even had a play with Kitchen towel...look at this looks fab ...I am sure you will agree..
I had a great day...thank you Glynis and Claire for looking after me and always making me feel so welcome...

Just before I go..I had some very sad news ...if you read my blog yesterday you know about Poppy ...well unfortunately she was found ...but is no longer with thoughts and prayers go out to her owners...
Please be kind, it can be a cruel world ...
Love and Hugs..

  8. Hello Jo! I've been catching up with your blog today as it's been a busy week for me. The art you did yesterday is lovely, some fab ideas. Where do you get your inspiration from? I also like the card you did with pan pastels, and the one on the telly with the lamp posts as a frame is great. So sorry to hear about your hand, I do hope it gets sorted quickly. What a shame about Poppy, her owners must be heart broken. Hope you have a lovely Sunday. xx
