Artist Trading Card "Find the Beautiful"

I love making Gelli Prints, but I have a really hard time using the prints on projects. I end up with stacks and stacks just sitting there. So today, I challenged myself to actually use the Gelli prints I made.
I used the lighter color print for background. All I had to add was some darker colored stenciling and it was done!
My Instgram friend Debbie (@debbiekenn) suggested using the prints to make embellishments. Stamping on them like I did here, making flowers, or paper piecing. That got my mind racing with ideas!
I also like to only make a few prints at a time. This way, they don't stack up and become overwhelming.
How do you use your Gelli Prints?

Our Mixed Media Moods "Trust"

We are back, baby! DeeDee and I took a little break but we are back with our monthly collab "Our Mixed Media Moods.

Every month one of us creates a mood board and then we create projects based on that mood board. We also create detailed process videos of our projects.

So without further ado....

Here is this month's mood board!
We are using transparent layers, transparency, fabric, stitching, text, vintage book text, wood, fibers, vintage sewing patterns, tissue paper, machine sewing, encaustic, weaving, scribbles and mark making, browns, tans, whites, creams, vintage colors

For my project I used a lot of elements from the board. I started with using the color scheme. I also used transparent layers and book text.

I used some resin papers and machine sewing. I even tried hand stitching. I stitched my chipboard word with white embroidery thread. I also tried some French knots under my main cluster. 

I used the "trust" chipboard piece as my wood element because it looked a …

"Create Joy" || Mini Junk Journal

I have the first page in my mini junk journal to share today!

It is on ledger paper which I made sure to cover with clear gesso so the paper would hold up. it is a very Dina Wakley-esque page, with a splot of Dylusions Ink and some magenta paint. It came together very quickly, which is exactly what I wanted for this 'art everyday' venture.

To see exactly how I made it, you can watch the process video at the end of this post. There is also a complete supply list with links to everything I used on this page.
