Gocco — finally!

I received a Gocco PG-Arts screenprinting machine from my Mommy for Christmas last year … and never used it. I was too scared. I’ve been reading Gocco tutorials for months and months but the whole thing seemed so overwhelming to me that I just couldn’t bring myself to take the plunge — even though I had pined for a Gocco long before I ever received one.

But finally, I was inspired to give it a go when Lisa from The Bunny Log spread the word about her Autumn Postcard Gocco Swap. Thanks Lisa.

So. last night I made over 50 of these sweet little bubble-baby-fairy postcards. And I am so happy with them. Certainly there are some things I now know that I could have done differently … but these are sweet just as they are … and I will get the hang of this in time. In truth, it was SO much easier to use my Gocco then I ever could have imagined. There was no reason to be so afraid of it. Lesson learned: “Just Do It”… nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I made some extras for Etsy and will post them soon for those who find these as sweet as I do. I also made some extras for me, of course 😉

Have you tried something new this week?
