Monday’s blog is trees and flowers. Well, here we are trundling home after 4 days at the Glasgow Craft Show, and the weather is pretty bad. Actually, it always is when we leave Scotland! Rain, snow, blizzards…but we had a brilliant time in Glasgow, so many thanks to all those kinds visitors to our stand, who made us feel so very welcome.
And since Monday’s blog must be writ,
This is it…
The background was made by pulling a ghost print off the Gelli plate with Titanium Buff. It’s just copy paper, but it looks magnificent, and can be stamped straight onto, using a permanent Archival ink pad. Here, I used the Sepia Archival, our Clarity Happy Christmas Stamp, and the trees from the Christmas Set “In the Bleak Midwinter” . And my goodness! Is it bleak out here tonight!
Difficult to believe that this is made with stencils and a bit of acrylic paint….
When you consider that these paper prints are actually created from the leftovers on the gelli plate, that’s pretty awesome…
I think they are little works of art,
Each and every one! Boy oh boy do I get some practice at these shows!
For every one of the Deerscapes (oooh look! Another Tree!), I get a lovely paper ghost, too.
This is one of my favourites from this weekend.
And then we simply plant a tree…
And d’you know? Even though I must have pulled a hundred of these paper prints this weekend, because that’s my job, to show folks how it works, I got a little buzz every single time.
And what’s more, every time I pulled back the paper off the gelli, to expose the ghost print, those watching would all coo and wow in unison! Try it. It really does you the power of good.
