Gelli plate printing post no.8

Not sure if you've just dropped in, or if you've been popping in now and then. Recently i was asked "does your blog help your creativity?"
"Nuh" i replied. All that documenting, filing, scanning and posting. Are you nuts? i thought. So why do it? Well it's a bit like beating a drum or puffing out smoke signals isn't it? It helps you find your tribe. 

Currently as you may have noticed - I'm beating the 'gelli plate' drum. 
In between, I'm out and about or creating other stuff - and yes this blog documents that. And i guess if that doesn't appeal - you'll find your own tribe... that said.. druuuummmmmm roll!


Recently i set up my sewing machine in the shed. An aaah haa moment. Why did i previously use the dining room table? Der. Here it is, integrated into the creative mess space.


So now i can add to those gelli plate printed collages


Helping them along...


Building on what's there...


Or just a subtle addition..




paper or fabric, sew can't help myself.
