One might think that after three months of non-stop creating for the Vintage Bazaar I would like a break, take time to read a book, take a nap; all manner of nothingness. But yesterday was most simply a perfect summer day in my opinion – temps in the 70’s, sun shining, dappled shade on the patio and a nice breeze. AND…I had completely exhausted my supply of gelli printed papers so what better way to celebrate the glorious day than by making a HUGE mess of gelli colored goodness. Four hours later I had filled the clothes line with 20×28 sheets covered in printing and overprinting and more overprinting on both sides and another surprise item which I will share in another post. While focusing on paint, brayer, stencil, pull I also decided it was time to start a NEWSLETTER featuring my Keeping it Simple Projects in tutorial form. I am going to send out my first one in July and have added a sign up form on the side bar, so if you want those free projects, sign on up!
In the mean time, hope you enjoy my gelli on the line featuring stencils from Stencil Girl (Marybeth Shaw, Jessica Sporn and Terri Stegmiller) and Julie Balzer Designs stencils too. I cannot tell you what fun I had, and I don’t think any dogs were painted in the process…but I can’t be sure. (oh and then I did take a nap…and then dinner out with the Superhero, so it’s all good, so good). Most Happy Father’s Day to all those Dad’s out there….
