I have been having some fun lately with my Gelli plate. I needed to make some cards for my after-school children. I have been teaching them for 6 weeks and now it has all come to an end. Sigh! I really enjoyed teaching them and they were a great group of children. So l wanted to create a goodbye card for each child. Even if there were brothers and sisters in the same group, l wanted to give each child their own card. Here are two of those 64 cards l ended up creating. As l warn anyone who buys a Gelli plate ... beware they are addictive! :) It is so much fun.
- Starting to look at all the things l have done in my life that are positive.
- l am trying NOT to listen to my negative voice, which has always been such a big part of my life.
- I am very seriously looking to get my Art out there again. When l came home from our last posting, l went out to galleries thinking l could sell my Art as normal. Wow did l get that wrong. Where as l had sold my Art all over the world before ... the places l tried in London ...No way! Rejection after rejection. I was stupid to let it affect me so much but l did not pick up a paintbrush for another 4 years! Years later l went to Art School. Not because l really wanted to but l found that all the jobs l went for, required that piece of paper!!!!
