Hearts ( well it is still February- just!)

23 February 2017

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. 


  1. Ooo - productive! Fun. And lovely cards! Bet that felt GOOD! Sometimes you just have to get going and then it just flows...

  2. That's really getting it out of your system!

    1. Yes! I now have a lot of paper! Though I suspect that I will soon work through it!

  3. Phew! You have been busy, can I ask what arty vitamins you're taking because I want some!
    Fab work x

    1. Well that's funny because I always want a snifter of what you're on Mrs B!!!


I love to receive your comments - so please say hello. I have just been brave and turned the word verification off. Lets hope those spammy gate crashers don't get in!
