LAUHG OUT LOUT

I just have to laugh at myself and I think it´s a good thing I can do that!  My "good looking Gelli Plate" really did not want to belong to me so it asked if it could please go to the trash - and since I´m such a nice person I did just that.

I got so much lint on my Gelli Plate that I wanted to clean it up, no matter what I tried nothing worked. In the end I decided to wash it (knowing very well that was not a good idea) in the zinc. 

Well that did not go well, of course I got it very clean but also it kind of melted. So I decided to remelt what was left and pour it into a smaller "thing" to let it cool down. I got a good looking 8" x 8" Gelli Plate and though "that´s just great".

It did not work so it went strait to the trash, after I painted it and with some layers and let it dry completely to make painted clear packing tape.
After I got rid of the Gelli Plate I took out my "Plastic Plate" LOL  a plastic folder or the cover really and painted that with some layers and let it dry over night, in the morning I made this awesome painted clear packing tape.






After I took the tape off my "Plastic Plate" I put it onto aluminum foil and it´s so cool.

So no Gelli Plate for my just my green "Good looking Plastic Plate"

NOT WORKING

I should not have been so happy making my Gelli Plate - OK I got 3 print´s but that´s all, then I wanted to clean it and it kind of melted so I just reheated it in the microwave as told and that went fine. Poured it into a smaller dish and let it cool down. 
So this eve I wanted to try the "new" Gelli Plate and now it´s in my TRASH - yeah the trash.
It just did not work, the paint got dried too soon and I was not able to print anything off it not even on the sticky site of a packing tape. :(
Hope that anyone that is going to try to make Gelli Plate after reading this will have better luck then I did. I sure did something wrong but I´m NOT going to buy all that stuff to make another one - no way LOL.

Now I´m back to using my plastic folder that I cut into 2 sides - I have used that before and it was fine. So why did I even try this GP have no idea LOL LOL
I´m trying the sticky tape method on this and I´ll let you know how that works.


I have made print´s with it f.ex. on Happy Mail envelopes and such so this should work.
I´ll post a photo of my "Plastic Plate" and the tape tomorrow.

These are two of the prints I got before on the Gelli Plate.

I´M BACK - hopefully

Hello there, hopefully I´m back to blogging after a very long time, but that´s life right one time you are full of ideas and blog-loving and the next minute something else takes over and you have to take some rest from blogging - or at least I do.
Now I´m doing a journal - not for the first time - but this is a group on Facebook - The Documented Life Project - and it´s fun but I´m not good at this realy so I want to learn more.
One thing I have learned though (well I´v learn a LOT) is to make a Gelli Plate for printing - it´s awesome what you can use that for.
If you do not know what it is my best advise to you is look it up on You Tube under Gelli Plate and you´ll be amazed I promise.
Here is a layout that I made as I took my cooled down Gelli Plate and took some photos, have not tried it - kind of scared that it won´t work for me LOL LOL stupid right ;) but I promise when I do try it out (hopefully today) I´ll take some more photos and post about it here.
So just look at my Good Looking Homemade Gelli Plate.

FUN FABRIC BOX (and a link to the tut)

I just made a cool fabric box for my son, he´s kept his coins in a glass jar but that broke - I wonder why! - so I asked him if he would like me to make him a fabric box for the coins and he thought that was kind of cool. So here is the link to my all time favorite method of making a fabric box - just CLICK HERE - and you´ll get to the tut in no time :)
Here are photos of my finished box - cool right!


STARTED MY DEAR JEAN QUILT - 225 BLOCK

 I started my Dear Jane quilt a few weeks ago - that has been a dream for so long and I´m so happy that I finely bought the book and have done 6 blocks so far I do them all QAYG and have machine stitched them and quilted but now that I have seen so many blocks that have been hand quilted I want to try that on my next block. I really love the way that turns out and it would be so great to have one quilt that I hand quilted. Here are photos of the 6 blocks I´v done - I might let them stay like this - machine quilted - but I might also rip them apart and hand quilt - I´m just going to see how the hand quilting goes before I do anything with them LOL


 When I was thinking of how to make them, what fabric I should use and so on................ I decided to use just the fabric I had so it would look scrappy but I would not have to buy a lot for this quilt. I also decided to make the backing out of the same fabric that I would use on the front of each block. I like how this is going to look.   
I´m going to do them by alphabetical row and started on block A1
