Thank you for stopping by.
Well, it’s Wednesday,
and Wednesday’s Blog is something new.
To who? To me? To you?
I bet there is somebody reading this who has never thought of doing this dress-me-up trick.
Hands up and leave a message below if it’s you!
Yesterday at the Crowborough Retreat,
we had a Gelli Plate session in the afternoon,
and I said that for this blog, I would use a scrap that went wrong – or should I say I piece of Gelli Art which didn’t go as I had planned? The point being that sometimes, when things don’t go quite according to plan, the accidents along the way are often quite delightful!
So let’s take a look…
Here’s a Gelli Plate piece which didn’t go quite as I had hoped, because the Buff Titanium Acrylic paint had separated a little in the heat, and so it didn’t lift properly.
I mean, let’s face it, you really do have to have a vivid imagination to think that you can pull this one back!
That said, if you squint, I suppose you can see something?
This is the piece it came from.
Maybe we can improve on this later, too…
OK. The challenge is on.
Let’s just focus on one half.
I’ve got this scrap of paper, too from the tear, so that may help.
Rummage around again, here at the house, where we have not a lot of craft stuff, and find a lovely girlie stamp, called Lily
Stamp her onto the acrylic paper scrap in Archival Black;
she just fits.
Cut out her dress.
I think I’ll tear the back piece;
May as well go with the scrap theme!
Well, the good news is, there’s a gap for her feet,
so stamp her onto the torn background with the Black Archival
I used PVA Glue to attach her dress.
A Distress Pen will darken her hair slightly.
and her shoes.
There’s this really lovely tiny scrap which I just cannot throw away! But what to do with it…
I think I’ll make a flap at the top.
No reason, just a flash of colour.
AND I get to use the lovely scrap.

Add a couple of birds for the Birdhouse Garden Set.
Mount on good ivory cardstock.
Actually not too shabby now, eh!
As for the other piece, the Create Remnant,
I think I will hang on to that one,
and try to jolly it up later on in the week!
One day at a time, this is all working just fine…
