Some Gelli Arts before breakfast…
Okay Greg and I got these "tags" when we visited the Duluth Train and Art Museum a week or two ago. I know you can "buy" these nice tags at Michaels and JoAnns, etc. but darn, they are kind of expensive. I know I should make my own…how hard would that be? BUT anyway I painted up the tags, mono printed them and added some stencils. I can use them in journals or as gift tags. Other ideas?
The antique kitchen timer came with our old cabin when we inherited it. I am sure Greg's mom must have found it at a garage sale many moons ago. I have actually never seen one like it. Maybe someone made it? It was wood. But not very attractive wood..just some varnished plywood. So I decided to make it a little more attractive. Now I smile..it looks like a small bomb wrapped as gift. Hahaha. No taking this on a plane!!!
I use it in my classes to set times so I remember to do this or that or so students know they have 20 minutes to complete something and then we'll get back together or as a reminder that I have 15 minutes to wrap things up…whatever. I have probably just ruined an antique that would have brought $1,500 at Antiques Roadshow.
