Video tutorial using supplies from the hardware store with a Gelli Plate® in an art journal for the Let’s Play link party

The punchinella that I found at the hardware store for this week's Let's Play video and link party isn't officially punchinella but it sure works like it.  Punchinella is the leftover part when sequins are manufactured.  Usually mylar and shiny.  But I actually prefer this drywall tape to official punchinella. Why do I like it better? [...]

Time was on my mind  around the start of new year and I wanted to capture that in an art journal page.  Start of the new year?  It's March!  Well, this video got lost in my files and I just found it again.  Better late than never! Little did I know when I started this page, that [...]

How to make textured and patterned Gelli prints® with cheap lace video for the week’s Let’s Play link party!

What neglected supply did I find to play with today?  A roll of stiff white lace.  Anything that is white in my studio begs to have some color added. But what colors? Darker colors that I rarely use. Why?  Using often ignored supplies makes playing exciting because it is almost like the supplies are new again [...]

What's the theme for this month's Let's Play videos?  It's all about giving neglected supplies some love.  I've bought things, enjoyed them, and then somehow they just end up in the bottom of a drawer for a very long time. But before we get to the play...A great big congratulations to Clemencia who won January's giveaway [...]
