From striking abstracts
to luscious realism,
the prints were one-after-the-other stunning. Jackie's first print of the weekend was stellar...just look at these gorgeous colours!
and even on funny money.
It's a wonder they hadn't collapsed by Sunday afternoon, yet they still looked ready for more!
Today's Helpful Hint: When 'choosing' participants for a playshop, make sure they're as playful as these! It was so much fun to be with this Gelli-crazed group that I hope we can do an encore next year. Thank you all for joining me at the college Summer Series!
|Doesn't Linda's print make you think of searchlights over a city?!|
|Verona's tulip heaven.|
|Yummy texture, too.|
They made and printed with fun foam plates,

|I recognize Eileen's hand-cut stamp in the middle, but there was so much sharing going on, I'm not sure this is her print!|
and blue jean templates.
|Nor am I sure who created this.|
They printed on magazine photos

|The new fashion in colourful Canadian bills?|
|Love how the violet paper Jennifer used underneath peeks through for additional colour.|
|Those repeated circles really do it for me.|
and had the occasional happy accident!
Eileen was so keen that she went home at the end of the Saturday's class with one of her prints and over-stitched it to incredibly beautiful result...isn't this a corker?
Busy as bees, they watched,
