The mortgage is due. There is an issue with the insurance company that I need to follow up on. The garden needs to be shut down for winter. Lots of cleaning should be done. What did I do? None of that! I got out my Gelli Plate. Once it was out of the plastic it attacked me, held me hostage in my studio. I couldn’t leave…okay, I didn’t want to leave. It was just too much fun!
Anything in reach was fair game for the plate. I was thinking about the bills at least as I used their envelopes…Ribbon, envelopes, even the old jeans my daughter should have picked up off the floor ended up on the Gelli Plate!
One of the things I love out the Gelli Plate is I have to work fast. No time to ponder a choice once the paint is rolled out since I used cheap craft paints. Another thing I love is the leftovers. These are pieces that I used in the paint or cleaned my brayer on in between prints. I think I see an art journal page here already!
I don’t have lots of in-progress shots but I will have a video coming shortly!
As November starts a month often filled with thoughts of gratitude (Thanksgiving) I am so thankful that Sandy has passed and that the East Coast is beginning to heal and repair. The coast has so much to rebuild- my heart goes out to each and every person effected by Sandy!
Congrats to Janette! She’s the random winner (thanks random.org) of the experimentation kit!
