Printing on papers and fabrics

I  recently purchased a Gel Printing Plate.  The day it arrived in the mail I immediately called Midge and said we have to get together and play.  So, the next day we spent over 4 hours printing on paper and fabric.  We had the best time.  This is a picture of us, relaxing and making decisions over who gets which print.  I love this printing plate, wish I hadn't waited so long to purchase it.

Cheers!  This is the link to the web page for information on the printing plate.

Giveaway winner

The winner of the "My Memory's Suite" v2 digital scrapbook software program
is number 6 "Gloria Stone".  Gloria's comment was "roots and branches for sure."

Thanks to all who entered the giveaway. This is a wonderful software program.  If you would like to purchase it you can find a coupon code on my blog that you can use to get a $10 discount on the software and a $10 coupon for the store.

These pages were created with the "My Memories Suite" software program.

When I work on projects, I keep a large poster board sheet on my table.  All my extra paint, doodles, stamps, etc. transfer onto the poster board.  This is the results of a couple months use of this poster.
I cut it up into 16 pieces, 5 1/2 in. x 7 in.  I can imagine so many ways to use these pieces.  Book covers or journal pages, cards, bookmarks, background papers and more.

Greeting cards made with 'Paper Cloth'

My neighbor and good friend, Midge Kullberg, is a wonderful artist.  Before getting into Mixed Media she painted beautiful watercolor pictures.  

Midge made these colorful greeting cards using pieces of 'Paper Cloth' attached to good quality cardstock .  I love all the different papers she used.  The paper toweling and colored threads add wonderful texture. Her choice of stamps and adding a little glitter were a great touch.

Thanks Midge for letting me share your cards on my blog.
