December Update

Hi all! I hope everyone had a nice holiday. I was alone for Christmas, which was a bummer. I did, however, get some cool gifts, including lots of acrylic paint! Despite having a lot of pain from my fibromyalgia, I've been making a fair amount of art lately. Mostly, I've been making mail art, but I've also been doing some art journaling. I just got five new stencils in the mail today, so I have a feeling that today will be full of artsy goodness! I ordered a Gelli plate (a printing plate) a few nights ago, and I'm very excited for it to get here!

  2. You are going to LOVE your gelli plate! I have two already (6x6 and 8x10) and have made some amazing envelopes, journal pages, and manila tags! Experimenting with different types of paints, stencils, etc. and I'm addicted to this fun tool! From all the reviews and comments I've read from others, everyone from beginner to experienced artists have become addicted. LOVE IT!
