The Tale of a Halloween Oops Card

The Tale of a Halloween Oops Card

Turning this  Gelli print in to a card was supposed to be a quick and easy.  Then there was an Oops thanks to my handwriting.  Then another.

That probably doesn’t surprise you one bit.  I make all sorts of mistakes, I mean Oopsies, as I play.  It didn’t go as planned but every Oops was a opportunity that led me here.

Fair warning about this video:  I use some ribbon and I have not been certified as a bow and ribbon specialist so I just wing it and add more glue!

Watch Oops after Oops on a Gelli Printed Halloween Card  on YouTube.

You can see how I made the Gelli prints that I turned into this card in this video.

Sticker and Gelli Plate Play

This isn’t my brightest logic.  I’ve got a huge box of Mrs. Grossman stickers that I love from my avid scrapbooking days.  Love them so much I don’t use them.  That is all changing thanks to this month’s Colorful Gelli Print Party!   I am facing that not so logical logic and getting those stickers to use on the Gelli Plate!

Be sure to watch the very last ghost print that I get.  You  might be able to relate the feeling that I had…and it’s not what you expect.

The prints started with yellow Gelli printed papers  from another play session.

I had plenty of these witches so I was free to experiment with them.  This is my favorite favorite print of them all!

After seeing the prints, I am feeling the urge to make a Halloween card.  Come back next week to see what it becomes!

Somerset Apprentice Joy

Published in the Autumn Somerset Apprentice!  Absolutely elated to be in the latest Somerset Apprentice!   It is an honor to be included in this magazine as there is so much inspiration from so many great artists in these pages!

Published in the Autumn Somerset Apprentice!

I am a bit partial to page 26 but there is so much in this issue.   If you have a moment, spend some time in the From the Pros section, especially the paragraphs where they offer advice.

Sue Pelletier’s advice about making art, Mary Beth Shaw’s  advice about improvising, and Andrea Matus DeMeng’s advice about being uncomfortable resonated so strongly with me.

Published in the Autumn Somerset Apprentice!  Thanks Somerset for including me in this fantastic magazine!
