You can find sweet Carolyn at her blog: A Colorful Journey. She also has a new colourful workshop: Gelli Printing, where you can learn a lot about this fun tool, creating one-of-a-kind papers! Colourful layers that play with texture and design. The workshop will have new videos each week on Mon., Wed. and Fri for 5 full weeks. You’ll be looking right over her shoulder as she makes her gelli prints. You’ll see it all- including the oops and how she handles them. Click here to read a sampling of what you´ll learn! Hurry! The workshop starts on April 1st.
Here is Carolyn´s piece and the story behind it:
Ten, my favorite number from math class because it was so easy for multiplication and division! Remember multiplying by ten? Just multiply by 1 and add a zero to the end. The background was the 1- a 1 layer Gelli print. Sometimes I add layer after layer and sometimes just 1 layer. This time -1 layer and it felt ready. The zero- zero stress. Having a strong background makes it easy to add the embellishments! The chipboard letters and tabs needed just a touch of balance so I added green watercolor crayons to the blue flowers.
