Good Morning bloggers. I haven't created anything in a long time, and this morning as I was reading my emails I spied my gelli plate. So, I decided to drag out a few paints, deli wrap, copy paper and my brayers.
I wasn't thinking when I created the paper below. I painted the gelli plate and then wrote on it. Note to self..next time you need to write the letters backwards so they will print the correct way. Duh!!! (you would have thought I would I would have remembered that from years ago when I did my first eraser carved words.) I used 3 different greens and then some iridescent green paint in a tube. I wanted to eventually use this page for a beach themed project. (Life is beautiful under the sea)
I found this on the Gelli Arts site click to watch the video. Informative video on using words with your Gelli Plate
Below are the few papers that I worked on. I need to find a good source for some fun stencils.
I like these better than my first attempts using my gelli plate.
Last week was so very hot and humid, I didn't feel like doing much of anything, but staying indoors near the air conditioning. Last Wednesday I had to go and do grocery shopping for my parents, and so I picked up my granddaughter, Bella and we went for a quick visit to Plymouth Correctional facility. No, I wasn't carting her off to jail. There is a area that plants are sold and they have farm animals that you can buy bags of feed for 50 cents to feed and pet the animals. Bella loved it there but we couldn't stay long as it was so hot and humid. There were goats, cows, mini ponies, rabbits, chickens, pigs with babies, sheep with a baby lamb.

I have a few Butterfly bushes in my back yard. The blooms are so pretty.
Off to do some errands and then weight watcher's tonight. Wish me luck.
P.S...do any of you use picture trail? Do you still maintain it or have you deleted your account? Long before I started my blog I started a picture trail site to store art photos and projects and photos that I've taken. I haven't used it lately I am thinking of deleting my account, but first I'd need to copy all of the photos that are in my albums to CD that are stored on my picture trail. Still debating on what to do....keep it or delete it. www.picturetrail.com/elaine_akers
