Jello.......Re-Printing



I had a dozen or more jello prints that I was not satisfied with.
I contemplated slicing them up with the rotary cutter for piecing or possibly borders for journal quilts...

Then....I pulled out the gelatin plates to try some

In Progress...
I almost cut these jello prints into strips with a rotary cutter.
I thought I could piece them as borders?

Then I spied these office stamps.....I just started stamping all over.
It is time to go......so I had to leave this for another day.

I just can't resist office supplies.....it is in my blood.
I think it comes from my days as a legal secretary and an executive secretary with AT&T......staples, paper clips, tape......I love'em all.




Clean Up Cloths......Paper Towels
They were used to clean off the gelatin plates.
I plan to use them in a future recycle project in March.

I am much happier with them now!
I am anxious to turn them into journal quilts....asap!




Now it is time to CLEAN UP THE MESS!




I use one side of the Thread Shed as a temporary WET STUDIO
It works fairly well.
