As you know, I am a member of the Design a team at Blue Twig Studio. My article reviewing the mini Gelli prints was just published by Blue Twig. You can review my article at this link. https://bluetwigstudio.wordpress.com/2016/01/07/mini-gelli-plates-review/
This was a difficult project. But it does show that you just have to get in there and practice. You can't always just pick up something new and produce beautiful works of art.
