Photoshop Color and Pattern to our Glamour Girl

Well now that we have the shape of the drawing looking a bit better, it is time to have some fun! The drawing is still in black and white, but I wanted some color. And texture. So I took one of the prints from one of my Gelli Art Printing Plate sessions and brought that…

Gelli Arts Faux Washi Tape and Decorated Duck Tape

I generally like to make my own everything, and that includes Washi Tape and decorated Duck (Duct) Tape. I usually stamp on these, but recently I have been playing around with them on my Gelli Arts Printing Plate.

Not only for the sweet babies that were taken so soon, so quickly, and so viciously, but for those…

Holiday Card Procrastination
