Gelli Play Workshop

We had fun with our Gelli Play Workshop on Saturday. Working in small groups/teams made for a sharing atmosphere. Those who had brought everything but the kitchen sink were able to share their goodies and there was generally a nice atmosphere of give and take.
Thanks to Pat, who also provided tea and cakes, we have some photos as a memento.

Lots of intense concentration.

Excitement during the draw for a free gelli plate.

 People were reluctant to find space in their fridge for the home made plate, which had lasted well throughout the session, but one person volunteered to give it a home and I hope they have lots of extra fun with it.

Looks like that workshop leader went off for a slice of cake!

Gelli Plate and Recycling

I have been saving some of this plastic packaging up since we had biscuits as a gift at Xmas, honestly we don't usually have biscuits, lots of homemade cake of course. I also started saving other forms of plastic packaging, the only downside being where to store it all. Really interesting patterns when you stop to look:

 I almost threw it away due to frustration with lack of space; planning for a gelli play workshop which I am leading at the end of April, I decided to have a go with it and am I pleased that I did not bin it. I think it gives some lovely free impressions.

 Looking for simple idea for using prints:this is a little book made with two gelli prints glued back to back  and acrylic wax on the cover. Pamphlet stitched with a paper bead added.

 I machined stitched two small envelopes made with scraps onto the back cover by sewing under the flap. 

I put mine into a book press to flatten it, but just use a few heavy books. Its much nicer when flattened.

Slow progress.

'Patched and Pieced' continues its slow progress.

Its good to have something to pick up and stitch when the mood strikes.

Sketchbook Pages

Some pages from my Change Sketchbook, partly to link with this month's theme on Sketchbook Challenge which is about 'polka dots'  - lots of dots and circles in these pages.
