Gelli Printing

Gelli Print Image Transfer and Background

I didn’t know that gelli printing can be so much fun until I tried it. The hardest part for me was the image transfer from a magazine. I made a lot of errors. I watched a video about it and the techniques was to use a small amount of acrylic paint and do not press the image too long on the gelli plate. Tried it and it worked. I will be doing a lot more gelli printing and will post them soon.

Halloween Trading Cards

Happy Halloween everyone! These are so much fun to create. I joined the group willowing and friends on Facebook and they do ATC swap every month. This is my third swap and I am enjoying it because I get to see the works of other crafters and of course checking the mailbox becomes more fun. 😃 If you want to join in the fun check out willowing and friends.

Mixed Media Magnets + Glossy Accent

Created these mixed media magnets using my kid’s puzzle pieces from their barbie toy. I was going to throw them away but decided to altered them. I added glossy accent from Ranger on top to add glossy finished and to protect the art. They turned out nice and added them on my Etsy shop. I think these are great for giveaways, gift for a friend or just display them on your refridgerator for daily inspirations.

Pattern Designs

Turning Your Kids Drawings into Pattern

My kids love to draw and paint. They will draw characters from video games. My youngest one is only seven years old, and she loves to doodle. One day she asked me, “mommy can you use my drawings for your pattern design”? And I said sure why not. I think the pattern turned out great. My daughter was excited and motivated her to draw more. She is very proud of the tote bag. Please check out https://www.redbubble.com/…/joan…/works/32995208-paper-dolls for more products.
