Use Your Paint

I bought a Gelli Plate at Christmas.
SO excited.  
And in typical Electra fashion,
I did not read the instructions, 
nor watch any online tutorials.
I just made stuff.
It was a bit of a disaster.
(as much as any art can be a disaster)
And because I am cheap frugal,
I just had to make what I made useable.
So I did.
I made a bunch of ATC's yesterday,
and if I do say so myself,
they are pretty fantastic!
This week's theme at
and I think these qualify.
It was a wonderful day!

Now I am going to learn how to use my new Gelli Plate.
Who knows what may appear on my blog next?
Stay tuned.

Check out

It will get your mojo up and about.

Electra, Over and Out.

My daughter told me a few years ago that I was not 
allowed to use the word "Oriental"
I kind of went, "Huh?"

So it's nice to see I am not the only one.

Think Pink! (feathers)

This week the challenge at
Tag Along is Think Pink!
and the theme at 
ERGO:  Pink Feathers!
The woman is an image from the Fair Maidens Collage sheet by Gecko Galz
and you can find it

Credit for the feathers goes to
Elisha Barnett and the wordart is by
Cottage Arts.

Thanks for coming by, I haven't made a tag for a long time
and these are two of my favorite things!

Happy Birthday Australia!

Challenge # 201 at The Order of the Opus Gluei is in honour of our dear Chat Noir, DT Member extraordinaire.  It is the birthday of her beloved homeland Australia.  How cool is that?  Have you ever been there?  Or do you live there?  I know they have kangaroos.  And beautiful beaches from the looks of the photos Chat Noir posts.  I need to get there  soon.  I will.
But in the meantime...
Oh!  And crocodiles!  Wasn't 
Crocodile Dunee from there?? 
I don't know.

Flowered Paper

This week's challenge at Use Your Stuff

I have no idea how to take a good photo of a LO
when it's late at night.
ie: dark.

Oh well, thanks for stopping by!
