I recently purchased a Gelli Arts printing plate because it looked like making my own background paper would be fun & therapeutic. It is fun, but I haven’t been pleased with all of my prints. I think it takes practice, but maybe having some good and some not-so-good prints are part of the fun.
Here’s one of my prints. I thought it was OK, but a bit busy. The word “circus” comes to mind if I was asked to describe it. lol However, once I cut it up into pieces and used it with my Hexagon Hive Thinlets Die, I really liked it. The die softened the pattern and made it useable. I made 2 cards with one of the pieces. Now I’m looking forward to my next monoprinting session.
I’m heading to Portland for the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooking Convention on Thursday. I can’t wait to escape reality for a few days and just have fun crafting.
Till next week-
