Fun with Gelli Printing Plates

Having fun with my Gelli Printing Plates ! I love this new product !!! I purchased mine at Altered Pages and can be found here .The other day I was "playing" with it and wanted to create some tags.I covered my plate with acylic paints and then used various rubber stamps, die cuts and my Brushsticks ! All I can say about the Brushsticks is if you dont have any.....get some ! I have used them for many things , but they are excellent to use on the Gelli Plate !
One tag I used my birdcage die from Altered Pages. I really like these dies, they cut wonderful ! I layed the paper die I had cut out on my Gelli Plate , then lifted it off and , a fabulous impression for my tags !

 I am all about layers and worn look so this works well for that ! On this tag I also stamped with
some stamps . I empssed the word "DREAM" with clear emossing powder, also a background stamp of dots, and an ever so tiny bird stamp !! I embellished it with some adorable fabric rose ribbon on the bottom that I sprayed with a glimmer spray !

I love how it turned out with an old worn look !!
Have a fabulous & creative day !!

Hail & Blooms !

What a title ??????
We had a hail storm last evening and did it ever sneak up on us fast , no time to move planters , ect... so  everything got hailed on ! Came down fast & thick if there is such a thing ! My garden was covered in the white stuff , looked like it was snow , I know some that were out driving had to pull over as it was like a white out .... but , when I got up this morning what a sweet surprise for me , a big yellow bloom opened on a zucchini plant , like God was letting me know my plants will be okay !!  Sweet !!
Off to go work on some projects in my studio , I am hoping I get something accomplished , because it has not been happening much lately !
Have a fabulous day !!
