New artwork

Thought I would just post a few things I have been working on at the moment. As I am now a lady of leisure I have all the time in the world to get in my little room and get messy. Messy room, messy hands, messy work surface lovely!!!!!!!! The gardening can wait!!! The Gelli plate seems to have taken over my life at the moment. Well, ever since I bought one really. You can play for hours.
This as I have said is a Gelli plate background print. I then put an image transfer on the top of it. I masked the girls face. I then used an alphabet stencil which I pushed moulding paste into. Then I splattered with different colours of acrylic paints.

These are various Gelli plate prints apart from the little brown tags. This is a package I have sent off to a mail art friend in the UK. Hope she likes them?

Another Gelli print. This is topped with a handmade stamp that I cut from thin foam I then stuck it onto a piece of thick card I can now use it as a normal stamp. I actually made loads one night whilst watching the telly. Who says woman can't multi task.

This is a card I made for someones birthday. This was zentangled with a Micron pen.
Well my housework awaits amongst other things. Walking the dog, food & gardening. But, painting RULES.


  1. Your gelli prints are wonderful (I also saw them on Flickr). But I am particularly taken with your zentangled kitty - just marvelous!
