Fashionably New

Goodness, how quickly do the FSC challenges come round, and it's that time again !! This fortnight we are asking you try something new. Well I had the perfect thing - my new Gelli Arts Plate. After playing around with the basics I had a go at a different technique, Gelli printing on sticky laminate sheets. I first watched a YouTube video by Patti Parrish before having a go myself -
IMG_0131I decided to use a section of the print on the front of a plain book

After choosing the section to use I adhered it the front of the book with double sided tape and finished the edges with washi tape. The book is for keeping colour samples in of various mediums – I’ve stuck tabs on the page edges -  
and am using little tags inside for samples of the colours -
The rest of the FSC team have, as always, made some beautiful projects for inspiration, so do pay them a visit – and we have a fab special guest this challenge too! It would be great to have you join our  challenge - don't forget we MUST see some stamping, not just Digis, and the winner will be chosen at random and receive a voucher to spend over at FlonzCraft...Happy creating..Esther xx
