Playing with PTP Stencils & PTP Elements Stamps

Hey all! 

I've been prepping for my upcoming project in Cloth Paper Scissors later this year and making gelli prints to beat the band. I think I actually witnessed sparks flying off my brayer! LOL  I thought I'd share some of the prints I've recently made using my Patti Tolley Parrish Stencils along with my PTP Elements Red Rubber Stamps.  I really do like the layering effect you get when you use the stamps over a gelli print using the same design elements. You can see examples scattered thru the following piles of prints. These are all double sided by the way. They will become pages in my Gelli JumpStart Journals for CPS. 


The next three pics are a technique I'm calling Patina prints. They remind me of the natural patina that develops on metals exposed to the elements over time. Close up, these really do look like that. 

The next two prints I'm including just because I like them! The first is an example of the Gelli Arts wipe out technique, and the last one is just showing why I love Pebeo Studio Acrylics. This print has Pebeo Green Yellow mixed in with other green acrylics . 


Happy Arting!

    Work from home theory is fast gaining popularity because of the freedom and flexibility that comes with it. Since one is not bound by fixed working hours, they can schedule their work at the time when they feel most productive and convenient to them. Women & Men benefit a lot from this concept of work since they can balance their home and work perfectly. People mostly find that in this situation, their productivity is higher and stress levels lower. Those who like isolation and a tranquil work environment also tend to prefer this way of working. Today, with the kind of communication networks available, millions of people worldwide are considering this option.

    Women & Men who want to be independent but cannot afford to leave their responsibilities at home aside will benefit a lot from this concept of work. It makes it easier to maintain a healthy balance between home and work. The family doesn't get neglected and you can get your work done too. You can thus effectively juggle home responsibilities with your career. Working from home is definitely a viable option but it also needs a lot of hard work and discipline.

    This is the most common and highly preferred job that Women & Men like doing.

In this job you don't require any degree or qualifications. You only have to know how to take care of children. Parents are happy to pay handsome salary and you can also earn a lot without putting too much of an effort.

    For those who have a garden or an open space at your disposal and are also interested in gardening can go for this method of earning money. If given proper time and efforts nursery business can flourish very well and you will earn handsomely. But just as all jobs establishing it will be a bit difficult but the end results are outstanding.

    Diet food
    Since now a days Women & Men are more conscious of the food that they eat hence they prefer to have homemade low cal food and if you can start supplying low cal food to various offices then it will be a very good source of income and not too much of efforts.
