I no longer hesitate to buy "plain" since I got my Gelli Plate! I used to spend time looking for the right color or design and being disappointed when something only came in one color - a color that did not fit my style. Recently, I went looking for a business card portfolio that was just the size for my purse. Not that I would use it for business cards, as I keep my contacts in my smart-phone. I saw an organization tip on Youtube - rather than try to squeeze your credit cards, library cards, membership cards, etc... into those three little slots in a wallet, use a business card portfolio and you can quickly flip through to find the card you need. I had looked on line and in various local stores. I finally found the one I wanted and the only color they had was black. No worries, I knew I would add my own colors and customize it for me.
I got out my Gelli Plate, acrylic paints and stencils! I used all StencilGirl designs for the portfolio. NOTE: I cleaned it first by wiping it down with a little alcohol on a paper towel.
I really dig how the design turned out on the textured portfolio.
Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
