Hellooo Gelli

My Gelli plate was calling my name, so who am I to deny paying my gelli plate some attention.  Out comes my Gelli plate.  It looked lonely so I brought out my paint, stencils, deli paper, and mark making tools. After several hours hanging out with Gelli we created…


Gelli and I had a fabulous time together!!! You definitely can’t stop with just one print.  Happy Creating!!

Cowgirl by Choice


I took a class with Color Burst class with Ken Oliver and I fell in love with Color Burst.  It is adequately named because watching how the water makes the color explode over the page is just amazing.  I love creating backgrounds with it.  The image on the card is Julie Nutting’s stamp Becky Cowgirl. The cowgirl was colored with Copic Markers.

Happy Creating!

Art Challenge:  Cover Up Good Stuff
Journal Prompt:  Going Undercover


I chose Art Challenge:  Cover Up the Good Stuff

I decided to create a background that I didn’t mind covering up.  It would be easier right?  Well, after adding random blobs of paint,  some Dyan Reaveley stamps , and marks all over the page, I decided I liked it. Now what? I chose  to go through with the Art Challenge and cover it all up. I was a bit nervous!!


I covered the background with white, silver, and gold texture paste using a stencil called “Coliseum” by Stencil Girl. Even though I was apprehensive about covering the background, I like how it turned out.

Carve December

Julie Balzer is carving a stamp a day in December.  I have never carved a stamp before so I started working in Julie’s book “Carve Stamp Play” to learn how to carve my very own handmade stamps.  It is a very good book with lots of detailed pictures.  Then, I decided that I wanted  to carve some large letters that spelled art.  The letters below measure 4.5 inches tall and the word is 6 inches wide. Next, I had 2 pieces of rubber left over, so I carved the positive and negative of dominos on the edge of the tag.  Carving stamps is so relaxing!


Happy Creating!
