Been Slacking a Bit…

on the posting… but I have been getting my Art on… though just a little less than before. It ebbs and flows doesn’t it?

I got this great piece done this weekend. I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I wish I had made it as a canvas instead of a page in my 9X12 Sketch book- because I would so hang this on the wall or give it as a gift. (I have a few “Shoe People” in my life- You know who you are!- who might like this as well!)

So without further ado here it is… starting with the awesome Gelli Plate background! I love the way this turned out! I watched a few tutorials to learn some better techniques and I did this background one color at a time. LOVE my Gelli Plate!

Once I had the background done… I added the SHOE chipboard embellishment (Which I had already painted that awesome blue and added the bling- it was partly the inspiration for the background colors!) then I added all the little floral and bling touches! I found a quote I liked on the internet and the rest is history… or Art… 🙂

As I was making the background- I used the excess paint on the Gelli plate, the bubble wrap and the other items I used to make it- to make a background in my awesome 5X7 journal. I can’t wait to make a page on this one now!

I also made an awesome card and matching journal page a few days ago. Will have to show you that soon- but I sent the card to a friend. So I need to wait until she gets it before I post! 🙂

ENJOY YOUR ART!!! What have you been working on? I know a bunch of you have been experimenting with your Gelli Plates too… Hope you are having fun!
