I am still awaiting the arrival of the larger Gelli Plate from the House of Bears via the UKS Marketplace.  It’s on the way! Yippee!

So my WOYWW desk is not super productive at the moment.  I’m stashing some ATCs that have been kicking around on the outskirts for a week or two



I played around with making a silicone caulk and cornstarch mold (then picked too shallow an item, I think)


and still considering what to do with the Gelli piece with the Jake Blues silhouette I cut from a dingbat.

Seems easier to note in the post that a dingbat is like a font but instead of letters each character corresponds to an image – in this case the images are all of Famous Folk.  Some of the other “folk” are ripe for creating stencils of as well so who knows?  At the very least I need to do Elwood too….


I was complete rubbish last week at commenting, due to a series of events, but will begin this week by visiting al those who commented last week and who I didn’t manage a return visit.  Then I’ll carry on with this week.  Still not feeling my best, although happily DD is recovering from the cold she passed on to me, so with the exception if her skating lesson my deck are clear! Fingers crossed nothing gets in my way!

Happy WOYWW.

  1. I was thinking that things would be calmer in September, but I seem to be more away from than at my desk and don’t catch up at all..hate that. sorry you aren’t feeling well, colds have struck suddenly, this return to school and college mixes all the germs up so effectively huh..
    loving the silhouettes and the idea, but np know not who is Elwood?!!

  2. You’ve got lots happening on your desk today Mary Anne, I am loving your fabulous ATC’s and the Gelli Plate Print with Jake Blues Silohuette how very clever to think of using the Ding Bats to create your stencils. Have a great week and thanks so much for visiting me earlier! Danie #48

  5. Insanely I only just found out about ATCs recently from another WOYWW – I don’t know whether their a US thing? Yours look great, I suppose an ATC is just perfect for experimenting. x

  6. Hi Mary Ann thanks for popping round – from last week 😉 Some times life gets in the way of desk hopping!!! Glad you like my Art Journal Page. I am loving all the work you do with your Gelli Plate. Those ATC backgrounds are fab but the Jake Print deserves a frame. Love it. Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 65

  7. Fabulous ATC storage and I adore that Gelli print page 🙂 You are so lucky to be getting one via House of Bears 🙂

  8. Those ATCs look fab all together in the album, bright and cheerful! As is your work with Jake Blues’ outline. You definitely have to do Elwood too…..I used to have two cats called Jake and Elwood!!

    Thanks for the crochet link btw, I’ll definitely have a snoop at that 🙂
    Hugs, LLJ 54 xx

  9. Are you making moulds with the silicone/cornstarch? someone just told me about this. Let us know how it works! As far as the Piniata my twins are 9, they have 20 guests coming to the party (and their brother) so I want to make sure everyone gets at least one whack at it LOL! Happy WOYWW! Lindsay #21

  10. Oh we were hoping the Gelli plate would have arrived. Posted Monday before lunch and our post is usually good, unless there is a crafting postman who borrows it along the way! Your gelli print is looking good there.

  11. Funny, I was just sorting my ATCs yesterday too… Can’t wait to see your creations when you get your new bigger gelli plate 🙂
    Happy WOYWW and have a wonderful week!
