(Pile of Presents – Art Impressions)
Today’s Stamping: Another Sunday in the stamp room. What are you doing today? I’m finishing up the next eArticle, this time on “Stamped Gift Tags & Gift Wrap”. I should have it done and posted by mid-day on Wednesday (11/20/13.) This is one of the quick tags I made for the eArticle. I like it because the colors are bold and fun but non-traditional and it is a quick and very easy tag to make, something you really appreciate when time is running out during the holidays!
Gelatos Video: I also took a little time this morning to watch Lindsay Weirich’s recent Gel Sticks and Gelatos video. You can find it on her Frugal Crafter blog and also on YouTube. In the video, Lindsay uses Faber Castell Gel Sticks and Gelatos in several ways to create a stamped card. If you’ve been wondering whether these sticks of color are for you, check out the video and see how they can be used! My thanks to Lindsay for recommending VSN’s recent “Gelatos, Gel Sticks & Stamps” eArticle in her video!
New Gelli Plate Shape: Finally, if you have been enjoying VSN’s most recent eArticle, “Gelli Plates & Stamps”, and have been inspired to make lots of rectangular monotypes, be sure to check out Gelli Arts’ website. They recently announced yet another gel plate, this time circular. They’ve got a video posted there showing how you can create overlapping circular prints on a large piece of paper to create a really big piece of art. (Because of my current eArticle topic, I can’t help thinking about how this approach might be used to create wrapping paper.) The new circular gel plate is a bit more expensive than the rectangular versions, but if you love making gel plate monotypes, you just might be tempted.
