Just playing... cat, tags and gelli

She's already in summer mode, enjoying the fresh air outside...remember, never never put a small fuchsia basket to dry outside!
Lei si è messa in modalità estiva, si gode un pò di fresco sul terrazzo, e ricordare, mai mettere ad asciugare fuori un piccolo cesto fucsia...
I usually don't craft on Monday evening ( blue Monday..), but yesterday I put aside all the DTs stuff and just played and try my new toys! I wanted to try a technique I saw on a video and be inspired by the very gorgeous, choked of ideas and projects of the PaperArtsy blog.
These are what I got, two tags inspired by Carol Quance Tag Book Part 2. I played with the Treasure Gold-Brass and my new Cuttlebug. The Treasure Gold works everywhere, even on fabric, and it smells of ...of the old shoes-repairer shop for me.
Di solito non crafto di Lunedi sera...troppo stanca e detesto i lunedi in generale, ma questa volta mi sono fatta ispirare dalllo stupendo blog della PaperArtsy , pieno di idee e progetti. E poi volevo tirare fuori di nuovo il gelli plate e provare una tecnica vista su un video. E questo è quelllo che ho prodotto, due tag ispirate al lavoro della Carol Quance: ho giocato con il Treasure Gold, ammappa attacca dappertutto, persino alla stoffa, e poi la mia nuova Cuttlebug...
 
And about the video, I was so curious about this technique with the gelli plate, and , despite it was the very first time, it worked! Maybe too much empty area, but I like it. Here you can find the video and the lovely jewels Julie Fei-Fan Balzer made out of them. 
Invece il video riguarda una tecnica con il gelli plate, molto carina, certo c'è un pò da aspettare che asciughino i diversi strati. Non male come primo tentativo, da riprovare. Qui il video.
