What happens when you mix ten creative ladies with paint, Gelli® plates and simple cardboard?!  Magic, that’s what!!

We started the morning printing – and we broke some rules, with gorgeous results…

After lunch, we started putting our folio books together; cutting up those beautiful prints and piecing together the sweet spots – THAT’s where the magic starts!

Finally, the books were done and, Oh My Gosh, I loved each and every one!!  So full of color and everyone’s unique personality, this might be my favorite project yet; tho, I think I might say that every time!

Last, we starting filling the insides and the true heart of this project is what happens inside.  Everyone had their own approach/expression, of which I’ve only captured a taste. BUT, I’ve scheduled a follow-up session for students to continue work on the insides, so maybe I’ll have more photos to share in a couple of weeks (tease, tease)…

I truly had a blast putting this class together and sharing it with my friends at My Heart’s Fancy.  Thanks girls for sharing the day with me!!

  1. I love these! Is your follow up class just for those who took this one or would you teach the making of the portfolio at it? I have lots of gelli printed papers I could bring if you would be willing to teach the portfolio again.

      So sorry, Cheryl – the follow-up will just be to work on the inside of completed books. If there’s enough interest, though, we might repeat the class. I’ll touch base with Maura and see what she thinks. Thanks much!!

  2. Looks like the perfect class to teach at Lucky Star. I would sign up for sure!
