I love receiving email from my readers. It’s always fun for me to hear what you are doing and if my posts have inspired you to create something.
Just recently I received an email from Jean Kranz. She had read my blog post on gelatin printing and said her local group – QBs (Quilting and Beyond) a spin off from the Lake to Lake Quilt Guild in Gorham, New York – was going to try this technique at their next meeting. QBs meet monthly to experiment with different processes. Each month a different person is in charge of the workshop and will purchase the paints/dyes and other supplies needed. They pitch in with the cost and share the supplies. Jean explained, “That way all of us do not have a supply of the same items – especially if we have no interest in doing that project again.” Sounds like a really fun group!
I asked Jean to email me some of her pictures after their gelatin printing session. Here are a couple of their prints:
Of course, their work inspired me to get out my Gelli Plate and play some more. Instead of working with nature, I got out my rubber stamps I’ve not used in a long time.
