When all else fails, though, I revert to a Gelli plate session just to keep the juices flowing and retain my creative sanity. I knew that time would be short to do any leaf printing (how the heck did it get so close to winter so quickly?!!!), so I tore into it with great enthusiasm. John was about to compost the flower boxes, so I stole some dusty miller before it disappeared, added some fern, Japanese maple and other goodies, and had a blast.
I used all the brayer-cleaning sheets up before I finished, and the geometric lines through some of them pique my interest.
I'd LOVE it know what you do creatively when your time is short and your need is tall. Please tell me in the comments below so I can add your expertise to my arsenal; post a link if you like!
