Gel Press Simply Subliminal

Playing with the Gel Press opens the creative spirit to infinite ideas to experiment with!  Here is a simple Gel Press mono print made with a stencil, and stamps.



Yes, you can "pull" a print right on the tag.  The tag is cardstock I die cut.

The background is created with lavender paint and a dirty brayer with green.  Dirty brayers make wonderful experiments for backgrounds!  Also a stencil was laid on the press after that (half way on tag) and a periwinkle paint brayered onto it, leaving color and the stencil background as the negative without the periwinkle color.

The eggplant was made on a separate Gel Press pull using a stamp.  Purple was squirted in one spot and green on top.  The eggplant stamp was also mono printed with another stamp with grape ink.  Then I pressed it into the plate and viola', the double pattern revealed!  Cut out the eggplant and adhered to tag.


I will be doing slide shows in the future, then on to video to give you the step by step visuals to this and many other  tutorials!



Weird ideas...some work and some come out with exciting results!!!
