For the art part..I have more gelli print pieces to show you from my gelli plate play day with my friend LuAnn. You can read about my first post about it here.
First up- some of our results printing on fabric! I brought along some pieces of muslin along with a few patterned swatches to try out.
This is the patterned swatch we used:
Of course, I just had to go bold and vibrant! :
I'm definitely going to play on printed fabric more-what about you?
These were printed on plain muslin:
I also printed on recycled tea bags:
I thought it would be fun to put these transparent tea bags over some patterned card stock. And here is how I finished them:
I wanted to do some abstract/texture play and I liked the black and white pattern for these. They're a tad larger than an ATC so I'll call them miniatures :). The printed tea bags were sewn onto the patterned paper. I then glued down a mesh square to each and sewed on the black and white chip board buttons using wire, wrapping the wires to the back. They were then glued to black card stock.
In my last post I shared some CAS cards I made inspired by the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge for this week which is "kraft". I got two more done before cleaning up and putting the kraft note cards away.
This one is so CAS it may even be considered minimalist graphic :) Products: kraft note card and striped paper-Canvas; die cut doily accent- Colorbok; white adhesive dot-Jo-Ann Craft Essentials.
The second card:
Products: kraft note card-Canvas; patterned paper-DCWV; die cut tag- K & Company; die cut bird-Colorbok; rubber stamp-PSX; VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad-Tsukineko.

And now I leave you with my two very favorite summer quotes:
