Start.......

as you hope to go on.  I spent a lovely morning with my new large gelli plate, some cereal boxes and my Big Shot.  The result was 52 ATC's which I am hoping to turn into art prompts.  I started this back in the summer but like so many things it stalled, so with my New Year fervour I thought I'd try again.  I should have taken photographs but you know what the gelli plate is like you are carried away. The outside(printed) of the cereal cardboard gave me coverage problems but with a combination of  gesso, opaque Fresco Paints and a deal of layering I managed and felt very happy with my re-cycling.
Now to add a bit of stamping and the words.

Lynda Monk has been doing some wonderful things with Thermofax .Who knew fish and bird skeletons would look this good.
