Hearts ( well it is still February- just!)

Valentines Day doesn't really do it for me. I guess it is just not my thing.

But I do like a heart motif! I use it a lot in my work.

So I had a happy afternoon in the studio.

I did go into the studio with the intention of doing a few cards (both Valentines and birthday) but first of all got very carried away colouring up some old dictionary pages to add to my paper stash.






I actually grabbed my Gelli Plate and really went for it - ripping pages out of the dictionary like a woman possessed and just getting colour down on them.


This pattern was created with an old credit card.


Some pages I just smeared the paint on. This will all get cut up after all.




Do you remember that chocolate packaging here? Very useful for getting some pattern onto a gelli plate.


And actually rather lovely in it's own right!

The upshot of that was that I quickly ran out of drying space and had to go and walk the dog while a batch dried (mind you she wasn't complaining).

And after all of this activity I made a batch of little cards, which will come in very handy to boost the Open Studio stock later in the year.
