Gelli Prints or a quilt?

I just had to share a few of my favourite Gelli Prints. Don't they just look like you could sew them together and make a quilt? Now there's an idea!!

What's on your Workdesk Wednesday? 224

CHRISTMAS.... See I am going to shout it now that it is almost December and a reasonable time to consider that It will arrive soon. No decorating outside my house with every flashing or inflatable creature known to man at the beginning of November!!

Ok rant over....I have been making many of my gifts this year so still not much to show....

These cards were the result of a Gelli Plate day (see previous post). I am so pleased with the subtle colours...people will think I am a real artist!!

If you want to see the desks of all my fellow makers, hop over to Stamping Ground and take yourself on a journey around the world.

A very enthusiastic Gardener!

A fun page taking inspiration from the trellis to create a background. A lavish cluster of paper cut flowers complete the page.

Some pretty little cosmetic bags I made from fabric scraps, ribbon and lace. I even mastered a concealed zip and lining!

A Bare Bear......

My Grandson said to me at bedtime....."I have to get Russell ready for bed too" and I was a little worried when I saw this......and I really don't know why he has an earring....

So I made him some much better!

Autumn Leaves

It is all about the leaves in this Autumn Layout. They are all cut from different textured papers and layered around the photograph to create a woodland frame.

A page showing my Grandson feeding the animals on one of the many visits to the farm. With lots of fussy cutting from two sheets of scrapbook paper, every scrap was used and no other embellishments were needed.

My best friend....

As I am still busy working on making Christmas Gifts (and better not share the images here just yet), I am sharing some of the pages from my Scrapbook Albums. My Grandson had some lovely studio photographs done with his favourite Toy Story toys. Here is one of the pages I made.
