I've been having a great time playing around with my new Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate. It arrived in the mail yesterday afternoon and I couldn't wait to unpack it and try printing some leaves that I picked up along Peachtree St. while walking Barker this morning. I think what I like most about the plate is the spontaneity factor: it's ready when you are! No mixing ahead of time and no refrigeration necessary - just take it out of the package and start printing! Since we're here at the condo for a few days, it's nice to have something portable to satisfy my need for art. Knowing that the plate would be here when we arrived, I threw a few tubes of acrylic paint in my bag before we left home. These were cheapies, so now I can't wait to get home and try some nicer hues.
Thanks to Jane LaFazio for introducing me to this fabulous product. I was so bummed out when I didn't win the free gel printing plate on her giveaway that I had to go out and buy my own! Now that's serious!!
Hope you're having a nice weekend. We had the pleasure of a few hours with Charlie this afternoon while his parents walked over to Tech to cheer the Jackets on to their third straight victory. It's a beautiful day in the city, and we took Charlie and Barker out for a stroll through the neighborhood. Some of life's small pleasures....that mean so very, very much!
