Another Wednesday, time for a peek at each other's desks and projects! If you would like to learn more, just go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/p/what-is-woyww.html. Maybe you could join our little group!
Hello! On Monday we had a big snowstorm that left us with 40 cm, 15.75 inches. It slowed us down for a few hours, but everything is moving normally now. I am writing this on Tuesday, where our temperature today is -11°C, or 12.2°F. A wee cold, but it was much colder last week, and will be much colder in a few days. I am so grateful I don't have to go anywhere!
Here is my desk:
I need some page dividers so I am making them. You can see the punch I used to make the tabs. This is the first of 10.
I have been playing with my gelli plate this week with frustrating results. Either I use too much paint and the brayer just slides around, or too little paint and it dries before I can get my paper on. I can't seem to hit the right amount. I've watched several videos, some use teeny tiny amounts of paint and get great results. I have a "cheaper" gelli plate, wondering of that has anything to do with it, also it is fairly old. People keep saying "don't clean your plate" so I don't, but I'm not getting the neat effects they say I should. I have ordered a small ATC size plate, so at least I won't be wasting too much paper as I try to get the hang of it. Any suggestions would be welcome!
Here is my plate:
Here are the results. I have since cut them all up to use in my journals or as card fronts.
I have made one card so far just to try it. My black needs re-inking.
Enough of that, I may continue to try this out while waiting for my small plate to arrive. I also used some prints in my journal.
Here is a photo of me and Jasper at Christmas. I love this photo! She has such a happy smile!
Well that's it for me today. The cats are getting fat and lazy because they can't go outside, but once in awhile I see them tearing around the house like they are being chased by a fox! Sometimes they are chasing each other, hiding in their tunnels, around corners, behind doors, in boxes, or their tent, ready to pounce when one of them goes by!
Have a wonderful week, stay safe and warm! The cats say "Meow"!
This isn't Inky, but if she were brave enough to plow through the snow, this is what it would have looked like on Monday!
