October Hopping with Craft Hoarders Anonymous!

Welcome everyone!
It's time for another hop with the ladies of 
Craft Hoarders Anonymous.

Each month on the 5th we'll share ideas and inspiration on how you can use
up your stash.

You should be coming to me from Marissa's blog .
After, head on back to Gloria's blog. 

Once a month a group of us will get together to inspire, share, and show you how to use up 
your hoard.
To start at the beginning or to get a full list of participating bloggers
head on over to Gloria's blog.

This month I used up a bunch of hoarded Gelli prints
and turned them into art journal pages for an upcoming swap.
I have such a large stack of prints that I barely made a dent in it with this project

Here is a small overview of several and below are closeups of the pages.

This first page is a pink and black base using Stencil Girl & Crafter's Workshop stencils.
Once the stars were added,  some Liquitex acrylic ink was flicked  on
and misted with water to make some drips.

The next two use a variety of stencils and multiple layers
of paint over Gelli prints.
Rub ons and Washii tape added as accents.

A blue Gelli print base combined with 
book text also gel printed to create this heart page.
The inside of the heart is lined with an Intense pencil and the word was stamped
and traced over with an acrylic paint marker.

Some Washii tape, stamping and coloring were added to this Gelli print.
The stamp is from Donna Downey,
once stamped it was traced over with an acrylic paint marker and colored in with Pitt Big Brush markers.

Another blue printed base with various
Liquitex Acrylic inks dripped down.
Rub ons were added and the heart was cut from another piece of Gelli printed book text.
The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of Gelli printed tissue paper.

Last page share.
The base is another Gelli print.
The larger blue circles were cut from a piece of Gelli printed tissue paper.
(I love using my Gelli plate with tissue paper, you get added depth from the wrinkles in the paper,
and the layers blend seamlessly in collage)

Well that is it for this month's 
Hoarders Hop.

Make to check with us every 5th of the month to get inspired on ways to 
use that hoard.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
