Hey Jack Kerouac! – Gelli book done

I was rereading On The Road recently, and had to look up  dingledodies – I’m pretty sure I had to look it up the first time I rad it, but NOT sure I found it, as that would have been before t’internet.  Also interesting to find Russell Howard has a comedy DVD using this in the title.  Who knew?

Anyway, t’internet tells me:

Dingledodies are those friends or acquaintances who you cannot help but be uplifted, enlightened or cheered up by – those people who put the light in your life. They are the special people who never fail to put a smile on your face, because of some series of strange habits or quirks unique only to them.

That works.

 

I started off thinking I would use this for the SDC, which is TAGS, but TAGS covered up too much of the Gelli print background, so I just went ahead and made it but didn’t submit it for the challenge.  I just stamped an array or creepy folk on some lighter Gelli prints and cut them out.  I actually like the effect it gives.

So here is the completed book:

and a flat shot:

the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a common place thing...
