Another day in paradise!

So, after a relaxing day of chilling and not really doing anything, I decided to join the Crafty Madness in the main house

There was so much going on, it was hard to decide what to play with! However, I decided to settle for the Gelli Plate. I have had my Gelli since they became available at Clarity Stamp but not really had a chance to play. So I settled down next a few Gelli experts, Mandy, Sazz, Kelly & Maria for some expert tuition. This was my first attempt

Not impressed!

However with lots of encouragement, advice and more acrylic paint, the confidence built. Here are a few of the better samples:

Then it was time to get a bit more adventurous and add a few Clarity Stamps into the mix

I would not say that I am addicted, but I had a great time playing and experimenting and will make more of an effort when I get back to the UK to have another play.

Clarity have a great starter kit which is available HERE

It was a great day and I learnt so much  - it is amazing how much creativeness and  talent was crammed into the room.

Here are a few more samples made using a custom ink pad which Maria showed me how to make:

Well it was a long and tiring day and Barbara caught me on camera and Blogged about it HERE

Happy Crafting!
