Why do I keep paper on my counter?  Is it to protect my counter?  Not really.  It does protect the counter and catches the color that runs off but it's main purpose is to be a big something to art on when needed.  And today I needed it! .
It all started with a bit of gel printing...if you look closely you can see the circles from the Impressable plate by @jenstarrstudio for @GelPress. Then I threw the kitchen sink at it.  Sharpie marker, oil pastels, paint, and repeat!

She is mad at me...that is the only way to explain such a serious look on her rainbow face. Perhaps she doesn't like that I was channeling Marge Simpson's hair for her lol! .

Rubber stamps work wonderfully on a gel plate! Join me at Stampaway in Cincinnati this August for a workshop loaded with techniques for how to use these tools together! .

My True North...always found when I play. The play doesn't always seem to have a clear direction in terms of where it is going or how it will get there but whenever I am playing it always points me in the right direction, my true north. .

My kids were sure I was going to paint that scepter they gave me for Mother's Day...and it didn't take much of nudge for me to rainbowize it! Here's the start of it...more to come! Wonder if this was really a ploy by them to get me to make them a cosplay scepter...I'm all good if it was! .

What happens when women get together for a weekend retreat of gel printing and playing? FUN at Print it. Make it. Love it!
.
Limited to just 20 (and it's over half sold out already) so everyone will have a private room and bathroom as we take over the entire building...so pj's are welcome any time of day!
.
All the pesky details of life are handled for us (like cooking and cleaning) so we can focus on the play as techniques are taught and projects are made.
.
The projects make great gifts to give, so when you join the fun this November, you are actually doing this to get a head start on holiday gift giving!
You can find all the details and registration at http://www.glendasmiles.com/print-make-love-2017/ or you can click over the blog for the links...link in profle

Never know what my kids will do...they know I keep asking for a castle so this year they got me a scepter so I can start practicing for when they get me a castle on some future Mothers Day - they wanted to know where on earth I wanted my castle...Scotland? England? Germany? Italy? Where do you think I should pick? No matter where it is they promised an entire wing so I would have more than enough space for art supplies...bet I could fill it lol! Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing women out there! PS they were taking bets if I would I would paint it...yup!

Might stir up some controversy with this...for all those kids of the 80's who were raised that disco just wasn't cool but...Disco should stand out, so I traced over the word...and yes, I had Donna Summer and the Bee Gees singing in my head the whole time lol!
