My Katie, Granddaughter married to Jeffrey took the original picture of her daughter.

Artistic Statement

My art includes fabric manipulation, painting, stenciling, stamping, photography, digital art and mixed media.  These techniques allow me to create and show my love of the wonderful world of whimsy. I was a self-contained child whole world was made into an intricate fantasy using bits of cloth, paper, paint and crayon.  I love to play with all types of mixed media and enjoy using these new techniques to create my artistic expressions. My heart sings when using a variety of techniques with multiple overlays.  I think of these offerings as inspiration in the form of dreams brought into reality. The photographic works on display shows a variety of computer
hocus pocus that changes the original photo into one of total eye candy.

Inaugural Gelli Printing Workshop

It was a fantastic day.  Wednesday July 10 Goatfeathers Studio opened with a bang.

The tag on the plant says Best Day Ever
Here are some pictures from the workshop.  The event promptly started at 10 with an overview of Gelli Printing and a fabulous trunk show of items made by Merri and Celeste. 

Recycled bags and lots of tags.

Paper book made out of a used mailing box.  Insides filled with delicious , yummy Gelli papers.
Look what I did MOM.....

Sue has found a new passion in life.  Gelli printing...

Prints, prints and more prints

Jane has mastered the printing and now on to stamping.

 Barbara is  drafting some creation for fabric goodness.

Jane was proud of all her pieces.  These are her two favorites. 

The ladies enjoyed a great lunch prepared by the Gourmet Chef on staff:  Merri

Sometimes a tea party ends up at the strangest places.
Looks to me like a martini dessert party.

 After lunch, stamp making was tackled.  Carla has made the swirl that goes down the rabbit hole.
What grand colors.  I can see this on fabric now.
A bonus lesson was given on Washi Tape.  Everyone learned how to make this tape using their newly printed paper and also how to use fabric or even paint their own. 
Goatfeathers ( that means Celeste) is going to film a short video on how to make your own Washi tape.  Stay tuned. 
Gelli Printing will be held one more time.  October 9, from 10 - 2, will be the last and final offering of Gelli Printing.  If you want to sign up be sure to email Celeste.  To guarantee a spot payment must be received.  Class size is limited. 
There might even be an Gelli Printing 2 class in January.
Look what you will learn in that class. 
Not to mention that you will use all your prints to make a wonderful book.
Keep Gelli printing.
It is addictive.
