Fun to the max...

...and some great results are the two labels I'd put on last weekend's Gelli playshop.

These ladies really know how to party with paint!  Being such a colour nerd I was beyond impressed that Becca managed to not only colour-coordinate her shirt and scarf with the tablecloth, but then did a print to match!



Mel and Britney look totally engrossed as they wield their weapons.


Linda and Carol are equally intent, and you can tell by the array of prints surrounding them that they have been very busy!

I wonder what Gay is contemplating here - throwing paint at Becca, perhaps?


Britney is justifiably proud of this beauty!



Prints on paper, prints on fabric, prints on aprons and prints on hands!  It truly was kids' day at Fly in the Fibre!



The prints were amazing - so much lusciousness!  I'm going to zip it until the end so you can enjoy the variety, texture and pattern.


















Whenever I do a class, my texture templates change colour, and I just had to show you this mouth-watering drywall compound template after Saturday's playshop - gorgeous, no?  It's absolutely frameable!


Thanks again to all you  adventurous women - you made my day!  Thanks, too, to Fly in the Fibre for such an awesome space!  We're quite likely to be reconnecting there in the fall, so keep your eyes open for playshop dates.

  8. WOW!
    Third photo down, with three prints primarily green and orange - but with every other colour imaginable, wins my vote.
    I LOVE the look of the drywall compound template after this session.
    Truly some fabulous prints were made and it certainly appears that everyone had a great time making them!

    1. They're fabulous, right? They were done by Mel, the owner of Fly in the Fibre...knockouts all! It was an electric group - all of them stars! And yes, I think that compound template is fantastically delicious - edible even! :D

  10. Looks like another awesome class! That texture plate definitely is a work of art itself. I love how you call them playshops as opposed to workshops. A much better description!

  13. You are so right Win... VARIETY is the operative word. I have never seen so many FABULOUSLY GORGEOUS prints all in one place and so so different in their colorful array. There were a couple that I just wanted to STEAL right this minute!!! But they were ALL just INCREDIBLY WONDERFUL. You should be soooo proud of your gals. As always - such a TREAT to see your post!! Xj.

    1. Agreed, Joi - these ladies were awesome and took to the plates like pigs to a banquet! I could have stolen any number of their prints as well (maybe did, in fact....shhhhhh, don't tell). :D
