Our host had prepared the gelatin prints already for us to use - 56 sachets of gelatin for 6 printing plates!!! She had been very busy indeed!
and one of the other attendees brought some amazing cupcakes
And look what I came home with....
You might need to zoom in on some of these to see the detail - I love the one in the top right which I did using leaves and a heart Indian wooden block - these were all with the gelatin printing plate.
these were the mono prints using oil based paint - a different technique and one that needs a little more experimentation I think but I like the results so far
popped into some lovely wax bags with fabric and paper labels. Oh, and I also made some lavender cookies which I failed to take a photo of but which I will make again and post the recipe.
I came home having made lovely new friends, eaten beautiful food, with lots of paper and fabric prints to use in future artwork projects - what more can a girl want????
