The Craft Barn - Backgrounds Week



Hi everyone, at the Craft Barn Blog this week it's all about backgrounds and I've been using my gelli plate to make the background paper and the flowers for my card above. A little explanation of how I made my print and lots of inspiration from the rest of the team is over on the Craft Barn blog where everyone's been getting messy with backgrounds!

Enjoy your day,

Pretty colors Chris - I have a Gelli Plate but have not used mine yet - it looks like fun and you can just play and play. But as with anything - play is not all that it seems! Will go to the Craft Barn blog now and read!!
