Thank you so much for all the very real, honest and positive comments on yesterday’s Mindfulness Blog.
I think we are really onto something here.
As a group, I mean; not just me.
Isn’t it amazing how many of us are in the same boat?
But you never find that out until you open up and share.
How’s the positive thinking going today?
You can start your day over at any time, you know.
If it has gone a bit pear-shaped and you are on a slippery downhill slope, and the washing machine head is on spin cycle,
you can stop it, you know. You can decide to start the day again.
I do it often!
But on to today….
Thank you for popping in!
I wonder if you can help me…
I was rummaging around in this tip that is an artroom this morning,
looking for a nice blue background to blog on today
(sounds a little lewd!).
Anyway, I found a neat piece of Gelli Plate artwork
which I did ages ago.
Mmm, I thought, that’ll do.
Seeing as how we have to get up to Port Sunlight today,
ready for the set-up tomorrow, and the show on Saturday and the workshop on Sunday….
“This won’t take long to recreate”, said I to myself.
Which would be correct,
if I could remember how I did it!!!
An hour later,
following a few fruitless attempts
and establishing how NOT to do it,
Close, but still not there….
I decided to hand it over.
I used a Gelli Plate 8″ x 10″
Phthalo Blue Acrylic Paint System 3
Buff Titanium Acrylic Paint System 3
(You could certainly use the Fresco chalk paints for this too)
A piece of Punchinella
Have a closer look.
Maybe you will figure it out…
Which went first? The stencil? The blue?
Or was it the Buff Tit?
Did I pull the whole lot off in one single print?
Or did I pull individual layers?
How did I get the colours to blend like that?
I have had a very senior moment here.
or a CRAFT moment, as they call it:
Can’t Remember a Flipping Thing!
So if you can figure it out, email me your thoughts
and put me out of my misery please!
If you can actually do it and send me a pic,
that would be awesome!!
And the one that looks most like mine will receive
a £20 Gift Voucher from me!
But now I really must go pack for Port Sunny!

Grace is coming home for a week at the start of June!
And next week I am meeting up with Mark in San Francisco.
You see, we were right yesterday;
we move towards what we picture in our minds…
