Lovin' Life...

Hello!!  Marilyn here to show you my take for the October challenge by Marivic.."Autumn is in the Air". I love to see all these gorgeous photo of Autumn in USA but I live in the Caribbean and  here is Summer all year so I don't have any photos like that but I found this photo about this picture I took in October to my son when he was 6 years old so I made my version of this challenge with a boy page.
This month we have as sponsor Speedball Arts Products Company and I had the opportunity to work with the Gelli plate and the Speedball paints...I worked with Light Red, Silver and Platinum White paints and after I saw some tutorials about the Gelli plate, this was my inspiration... 

I worked with the Gelli plate and a mask to create my background.  These paints have a great coverage.  I also added some washi tapes in the same colors.

I had a lot of fun using these products.
Can't wait to see your creations for this challenge.
As always, make sure you review our challenge rules.  Now onto this month's prizes...

We love gelatin printing and we've developed a better way to do it!

Our Gel Printing Plate looks and feels like gelatin, but is durable, reusable and stores at room temperature. It's easy to clean and always ready for printing. Monoprinting on a Gelli plate is simple and fun. The gratification is immediate, and the prints are too cool!

Until next time!!!
