Weekend projects!

Just wanted to share some of my projects from this weekend! I needed to restock my stash of thank you tags - these get tucked in with every order from my webstore. They're so much fun to make and each one is unique... it's so fun and relaxing to just make a stack of gel prints!

Most of these are posterboard tags but there are a few manila tags mixed in... I used just 3 colors of paint (white, lime green and a bright blue), but there was a little mixage on the Gelli Plate, so there are some in-between greens in there as well.

Every once in a while I pulled a print to create some backgrounds - these will be great when I start working on card samples for my upcoming summer release!

I also wanted to try out these Thickers rulers from We R Memory Keepers - there is a straight ruler with a grid and centering guide, and also these curves, in scrapbook and card sizes.

I cut out some letters from Contact Paper for masking, and lined them up on the ruler...

...then you press the tops of the letters onto the project surface, and tip the ruler out from under them. Pretty cool product! They would be great for placing die cut letters or other shapes in a row, arch or curve - I'm looking forward to playing with them more.

I did a little gel printing on my wood tag, and then pulled the masks away - so fun!

Here's one other project I finished up this weekend - I had a few more of these wood pendants done, but had to wait on the cording, and hadn't gotten around to putting them together yet. These are also in the store, and here are a few of my favorites!

I hope you have a creative week! I have mostly been drawing and working on stamp designs for a March 1 deadline, so it was nice to have a more colorful break this weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
