Gel Press Junkie!

Well we have a CREATIVE TEAM and looking forward to sharing some fun things.  I’m kicking off the posts for the upcoming weekend.  I had a friend over today and was playing with the 3 X 5 and the 5 X 7 Gel Press Plates.  I also happen to have some Color Burst so decied to see how all the products work together!  I have a series of photos so here we go!
IMG_5852Today I am using:
Gel Press Printing Plates, Golden Paints, Speedball Brayer, Color Burst, Ken Oliver’s Craft Mat, varieous stencils and white copy paper.
Start by placing a small amount of paint on the plate. Add a small amount Color Burst.

Place stencil over the paint.  Remember when using letters or numbers you need to lay them down backwards.
