Gelli Plate Print + PanPastels & Give-Away!!!

Happy Friday!  So are you all preparing for the next big Polar Vortex???  Dang, seems like we were just warming up from the last one.  Oh well, guess we're skippin' fall and getting right into winter here - BRRRRRRR!!!!!

I'm not skipping Fall in my crafting so Mother Nature will just have to get over it.  Today I have a fun pairing - a Gelli Plate Print + PanPastels.

Now this is what my print started off looking like.  This print was actually just intended to lift off some of the paint already on the plate through a stencil - not a real for sure intentional print.  I thought the colors were pretty so I kept it.  I'm glad I did because it works perfectly with my PanPastels....


I pulled out my red/orange/yellow PanPastels and set about blending from reds to a pretty straw yellow.    


The PanPastels blend so smoothly it's very easy to get a beautiful effect.  I love how the lighter yellow design from the Gelli Plate print adds such a subtle pattern.


I trimmed it out to 5x7 - cause I couldn't stand to waste any of it, cut some leaves from another scrap of fall-ish colored print and stamped the sentiment "So Grateful" (Unity Stamp Co).


Fun and easy but such beautiful results!

Now for the give-away!  I have the set of PanPastels I got to use for the DT gig on Altered Pages when they partnered up (Pastels Set of 5 colors + Sofft Tool & Foams) for one lucky reader!!  Is that reader you???  It could be - all you have to do to be entered into the drawing is to answer this question...Fall or Winter?  Which is your favorite season???

You'll have until 11-14-14 to post your answer to be entered to win!  

Good Luck Everyone 
and 
Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  1. Such a beautiful creation Roni, need to get my gelli plate out again soon :-)

    It's hard question to answer, both Fall and Winter have their beauty and faults, but I think I'll go with Winter, mainly because then we're closer to spring again :-)

  10. Hi Roni! I love Fall! Especially when I'm driving in the mountains and the aspen are turning. Its the best. Thanks for the chance to win.

  11. Your card turned out stunning. I like how you decorated it, too.

    Given the choices, I have to say fall because I hate hot weather and cold weather. Mild weather is my friend. Like you, I'm not ready for this freezing cold.

  13. Has to be winter. Hot cocoa, snowmen,Xmas, family. Plus a whole new year with endless possibilities.

  14. Beautiful creation as always!! Fall is WAY better than winter! But I like the response about like winter better because spring is closer but personally I would be fine with 3 seasons and forgetting winter all together! :) Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. Fall is definitely my favorite season! I am totally obsessed with Christmas, though, so if it was a choice between December and Fall, I would choose December. Thanks for the opportunity to win some Pan Pastels. Love your project! I always appreciate your innovative ideas.

  16. It would have to be Winter unless I'm allowed to choose Spring!!
    I've never tried Pan Pastels!

  17. OMGosh Roni, you are so generous!! And your card is sooo beautiful- so rich and warm! If I win, would you teach me how to blend like you do? ")You really do have a knack for those pans!
    Okay, to the question at hand..fall or winter? Even though I love winter, for just a week or two....I have to say fall, as it really does stir my minds fond memories and warms the cockles of my heart- so my final answer is Fall! xo

  18. Spring. Errrr, I mean fall. I detest winter, and would love to use some pan pastels!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. The smells and colors of fall make it my choice over winter. Winter would be my choice if it didn't last so long though. I would love the chance to play with pan pastels!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Beautiful card Roni and since fall is my favorite season you have used some of my favorite colors.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Since I love all the beautiful colors of fall an the days can still be warm I chose fall over winter. Your card displays the wonder of fall!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yah, that darn polar vortex. Living in Canada with lots of snow I'd have to say fall, but like you we really didn't have much of one this year. Or should I say we had fall all summer long.

    I love your card. The original circular design is beautiful. And of course I love the orange.

  24. Love the way you used your Gelli print, Roni! I've got a stack of them, I really should use them! Fall or winter? Well, I was born and raised in the Adirondack mountains of New York. Our fall colors are famous - love all of the golds, reds, browns mixed together. Our winters are pretty famous too - Lake Placid, skiing, bobsledding. It's a toss up for me, but I love the colors of fall so fall it is. Thanks for the chance to win some Pan Pastels!

  25. Beautiful creation! I have to say Fall is my favorite. Winter is just so cold.

  26. Winter - I love the way the trees look after they have lost all their leaves. I laugh at my dog when I take him for a walk in the snow.

  27. Definately FALL for me. FALL and Spring are my favorite time of year....winter is my very least favorite.

  31. Wow, the colors you used are just beautiful and the effect of the gelli print coming through the pastel is awesome.

  32. 'm not sure I can choose! I love fall because it's getting cooler, and the beautiful colors and Halloween. But then there is winter with Christmas, and bright lights, and family get-togethers, and snowmen and snow! I think I love them equally.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm not so fond of either, but between the two I'd pick Fall, definitely.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm definitely for Fall. I despise Winter!
    I have no experience with Gelli Prints, and wish I could understand more about how you got that print (I think you said "leftover from stencil"). The print alone is gorgeous!

  35. Most definitely, fall is my answer! And I live in northern CA where it is pretty mild!
    Love that pretty card with those beautiful fall colors!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Beautiful, thanks for sharing. My favorite season is definitely fall with all the beautiful colors - especially red, orange and yellow. Please the air smells so clean.

    ReplyDelete
  37. fall- i love watching the trees and leaves, some days the air is so fresh & crisp, even here in New York! & I despise the cold of winter

    ReplyDelete
  38. Winter! I love snow-the deeper, the better! Crisp air, sparkly ground=heaven!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh what a beautiful clean up print and your card is lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Fall (esp. Oct) is the best time of the year here in northern Cal. We've got warm days and the nights are cool enough to bring on some fall color. Winter is just cold and wet (well, hopefully wet this year).

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love them both and miss then both but since I have to choose Fall because of all the beautiful colors like you captured on your gorgeous card!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I enjoy walking in the snow and taking pictures in the winter but I have to save Fall is my favorite. I love all the beautiful colors which by the way you captured so beautifully in your card.. I love walking in the crisp air and having the leaves crunch under feet. Then there are those fresh harvested apples which are so juicy that sometimes the juice dribbles down my chin. The apples which come out of storage later in the year and are sold in stores just doesn't have that same fresh flavor or crunchiness.

    Thanks for the chance to win some pan pastels. That is very generous of you.

  43. Fall is definitely my favorite. I love the temps, changing leaves and Halloween. Winter in Kansas is yucky.... very cold and ugly.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Fall is indeed my favorite, but I do get a bit melancholy as the season settles in. I'd love to win the Pan Pastels but I ammalready thrilled to have found your amazing blog through the interview. My local library doesn't carry your book so I am sad.

  45. I've just discover your blog and.... I'm so glad for it!!! I live in Spain.
    I love fall because all those beautiful colours you can find in the nature, also because of those funny days picking chestnuts, mushrooms.....
    Thank you for the chance to win some pan pastels!!!

  47. Fall is my favorite! Comfortable days, cool nights, and all the beautiful colors in the trees! I enjoy winter, too, but only when it snows and we rarely get snow in central Texas.

  48. Fall. I love the time of transition. From sunny to rain, green to orange to brown. I am not a big fan of the time change though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Fall - absolutely! I live in the mountains of western NC - and the fall is spectacular. Your card is gorgeous - thanks for sharing!

    1. The stencil is the 12x12" Prima Flourish stencil - https://www.primamarketinginc.com/shop/12x12-stencil-flourish
      which was used with the round Gelli Plate.
      HTH!
