A fun afternoon creating mono prints.

Look what I got for Christmas! 

Today I went shopping, intending to have a look round the sales and just have a 'mooch', but I got bored and I was home within the hour, desperate to experiment with my gelli plate. Wow, it took me back to my college days and teaching days in the classroom, what fun I had.

This photo was taken after I had started clearing up, the stamps and masks were already in a sink of soapy water.

The prints kept building up on the floor as I played.

My most favourite four mono prints

This being my most favourite of all.

My most favourite 'ghost' prints.

My least favourite ones.

But saying that, now I have got them up in the craft room under better light, I have to say I love these too and can see me using them.  I got 23 prints in total, so expect to see some of them in projects over the coming weeks. In fact I received the new Crafty Individuals stamps before I went on holiday and I can see them both going together really well. So more fun to have. 

If you haven't seen the new stamps they are fabulous, so NOT my style, but they are calling me to have a playtime. The new designer is called Alice Palace and her blog can be found here. The stamps can be found on the new CI web site

I think I am going to have alot of thinking time with these lol.

I hope you have had a great Christmas and everything went to plan. Hopefully you have got a day or two to have a bit of a rest before the new year celebrations.

Thanks for all your Christmas wishes and for stopping by again to read my blog, I feel so honoured that you are here.

See you Sunday for the new year challenge for Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
