Creative JumpStart 2014 :) :) :)

Hello Hello :)

Yes I am blogging :), it has been a busy time of the year for me and blogging unfortunately has taken a back seat to work [it is a busier time of the year for me with my work as I have been doing many many double shifts to make up for the seasonal nature of 'no work'], and health issues that needed to be sorted out.

As many of you who follow me on Facebook [yes there was time for social media LOL :)] know I have been very fortunate to be invited by Nathalie Kalbach to contribute to her amazing and inspiring creative venture Creative JumpStart 2014.

Here is what Nathalie has to say about this amazing inspiring venture :)

If you’re not familiar with CJS, it’s a one-of-a-kind community event to inspire your creativity.
Need help getting your creative mojo going in 2014? CJS can help.
Throughout January participants get 23 videos from 21 featured artists.  It’s an amazing event where you can learn new techniques, discover new materials, and connect with other artists.
Head on over here to sign up and for more details. CJS costs just $20 for the 3.5 hours of video content. That’s less than $1 per video — a great deal.
So join me and 20 other artists this January for CJS 2014! We are looking forward to have you!

aaaaaaaand just to wet your appetite for more of this fabulous venture Nathalie made a short video to show case the incredible line up of creatives contributing :) :) :)

Imaginarium Designs :) :) :)

Hello Hello :)

Sooooo How about using your favourite Imaginarium Designs chipboard with Gelli Plate printing?!! :) :):)

Today I would like to share with you something that is a whole loooootta fun :)

Using my favourite Imaginarium chipboard shapes to create wonderful patterns with mono printing with Gelli Plates.

I start with either some clear gesso or gel medium and small paint brush,....oh and of course my fave chipboard; you will need a few of each as they will deteriorate with repeated use with the paint.

I seal chipboard shapes on both sides with the gesso/gel medium and allow to dry. They are then able to be used as a stamp when you are creating your prints with the gelli plate.

For the printing I used a brayer, my favourite acrylic paints, a Gelli Arts printing plate, and 110gsm papers.

Below are a few of the prints that I have created the large skeletal feather [IDDL0006chipboard.

This one is a fave :)

This is also a fave :)

This one is also a have :)

Well that be it from me for the moment :) I do hope you like this fun technique using the fabulous Imaginarium Designs Chipboard :)

Cheers and Happy Creating
