Make Your Own Background

We are showcasing Gelli Plates and Stencils  this week.

Gelli Plates are available in 2 sizes 6" X 6" or a larger one which is 8.5" X  11"

You don't have to use Gelli Plates or Stencils  to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used :-)

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
I used Gelli Plate and Simon's Exclusive Snowflakes and Falling Snow Stencils. 

I really had fun with the Gelli Printing and now have  a box full of fabulous, one of a kind, papers ! In fact I have mass produced this card and each one is different ! If you haven't tried Gelli Printing then you really should give it a go ,,, REALLY !! :-)

I bought Shari Carroll's Art Journal Kit and thought I would make a start on the inside ,,, It's really good fun ! for this I used Simon's Exclusive Snowflakes Stencil . As a beginner I didn't think this was too bad ,,, my First Art Journal page !! Woo Hoo :-)
