Gelli Plate fun

Have I told you how much I love playing with the Gelli Plate!! It's even more fun when I have students here learning to play along with me. Today's group of ladies did a great job of the Gelli Plate Layers workshop. In this workshop we go beyond the basics. We explore how to build up layers and be more intentional with our paint placement.

Altered Books


   I am still continuing each month with my challenges. This month it's all about altering books. I started to alter a few of them years ago, so it's been a lot of fun getting back at them. A lot of my Creative Studio students have joined me as well. 
   The one above is an older one that I just added a few things to, to finish it up.
   Getting the book ready to work in it is the hardest part. It takes time and patience to glue pages together so they are strong enough to work with or to make niches, windows or doors. 
The niche is cut out and them the pages glued together.

A transparency is used for this window.
   Here is the niche page finished. The other one is still a work in progress.

A favourite of mine.
   This one got very dimensional but that is the charm of an altered book. You can do anything you want in it.
   If you'd like to see more or join in the fun head over to Dragonfly Dreamers Monthly Challenge fb group.

  Well I have to get back at it. So many pages to alter in these books.

Happy Creating!

Tea Bag ATC's

Do you do art with tea bags? I can't say that I had until this month when that was our ATC theme. Who knew you could do such interesting things with them. Just see the variety of cards that were turned out.

Postcards from Canada

   With so many things going on for Canada's 150th anniversary it was interesting to find a creative outlet as well. The Fort Gallery in Fort Langley, BC decided to do a postcard call out for Canadian artist of all ages. They received postcards from across Canada and each one was displayed in their Gallery and sold with all the proceeds going to Canadian Feed the Children First Nation Nutrition Program. 
   A few artist in our ATC group decided to join in. These are the postcards that we send to the Gallery.

Drawing ATC


   This months ATC swap theme was draw/sketch. It was so interesting to see how people made cards for this. As usually a great variety. 
   It was also time this month for our annual Mega Swap. This is where we all put in up to 9 cards and receive the same amount back. I took a photo of the table of ATC's before we started the swap.
