Lately I have been distracted by my kitchen, but I am determined to get back to writing. Writers, like pray-ers, aren't the ones who talk about it, or read about it, they are the ones who DO! So, just like 6 years ago but for happier reasons, I am ready to do. The events in my life will be written here.
Last week, using instructions from the Frugal Crafter, I created my own permanent gelatin plate. No need for refrigeration, it waits for me on the shelf in my workroom.
I used an 8" square stepping stone mold to hold 2 (6 oz) bottles of glycerin, 3 tablespoons of gelatin and boiling water. I forced myself to leave it alone overnight and - yay! - it popped out of the mold with very little encouragement. The bottom of the plate is the smoothest, so that's the side I used for printing.
After an experimental print fest on Saturday, I made the decision that I am not purchasing any more decorative paper. It is way too much fun to use pages from the cast-away books that I can't seem to resist whenever I enter a thrift shop. There are thousands of pages, just waiting for a new colorful life, right there in my workroom.
I learned a lot while
I have been loving the template surprise method of making card elements. These papers will produce some interesting effects.
Sooo.... I'll have to start sending notes?
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
