WOYWW 230 – Gelli, Gelli everywhere


Oh dear.  As bad as it ever was.

My desk, moving around from left (in front of my monitors) to right (my satellite table.)

A pile of masks, mostly paint-y….


Where the action is



Side table with more stencils and masks



I am working on the pages for the tape-covered book I showed yesterday.  I’m using the shelf from a fridge we got rid of last summer (they took it away when delivering the new one, but the shelves I knew would be helpful so I held on to them!) It’s all a bit unstable at the moment, but its usual location is take up with something else at the moment. At least here it’s close at hand.

And just a couple of prints I really liked – this one is using a plastic sink mat that looks like pebbles to me:


and this one is using one of the angalypta wallpaper texture plates I made over the weekend:



Still lots to do, and DS is coming home today for a dentist appt. so not sure how much progress I’ll actually make on it.  I have a plan for the sheets but that may not happen till DS heads back to Uni.  I get to see him all to infrequently so I have to grab the chance for some quality time with him when I can.

Happy WOYWW day!

  1. I love the sink mat print. Can you tell me more about the sink mat? Do you have a photo? Love it!!

    • I no longer have the packaging, but I got it at a UK-baed discount store that just opened up near me, called B&M. I *think* is was an own-brand item, not made by a known manufacturer. They also had a kinda nifty flower one, much like the flower masks I’ve seen (Tim Holtz maybe?) but I’m not a super-floral gal so I bypassed it. It cost £1.99 so cheap. I don’t have a photo of it, but it looks exactly like the print, but some clear “pebbles”, some textured ones, mixed across the surface. It I get a chance I’ll snap a photo of it for you.



  2. Everything looks awesome, but I love the ‘pebbly’ print. You’re always a great inspiration … love following your blog. Suzanne x
