2nd Helpings Card Day

Hello Friends,  Hope everyone is dealing with this artic air OK.  We had a warm enjoyable day at 2nd Helpings Gallery here in Roanoke, Va. yesterday.
We had lots of elbow room and everyone spread out their "stuff" to make artsy-fartsy cards.  Mary Anne had lots of left over scrap booking papers to play with.  Linda was making mono prints.  Bonnie was attempting snowflakes.  Judy was playing with her Gelli Plate.
Here Judy is showing us how to cover the plate with acrylic and lay stencils on top.

Then you pull the paper off and have an intense layer.  But she prefers the Ghost Image, as shown above.  It's the second piece of paper that is softer.  You keep layering colors and stencils.  Then you can use that paper for paintings, cards, scrap books and journals.
Can't wait to get a gelli plate!
Just in case you haven't heard, Click this link to "Evergreen Lavender Farm" to see their invitation to a Lavender Christmas.  Wish I could go but I already have a Holiday House at Salem Terrace to attend and right after that I go to a Christmas party with work.
Linda, Bonnie and myself, Sue will be attending the Holiday Festivities at Salem Terrace at Harrogate in Salem, Va.  Click Here for info.
Judy and Mary Anne will be attending the festivities at Goose Creek Gallery in Bedford, Va.       Click Here for more info.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Happy Trails
