I pulled out my 6"x6" Gel Press and a stack of cheap white card stock, 8 1/2" x 11, from Office Depot. I used lots of different paints, including heavy body, fluids, cheap and expensive.
These are prints using Stencil Girl Stencils designed by Gwen Lafleur.
I used rubbing plates for these prints.
I think the first three would look better using the round Gel Press.
The next few prints I used Art Anthology mediums.
The elephants are Natalie Kalbach's foam/rubber stamp set.
|Used Gemstones and Retro Stencil from Art Anthology|
I love the bright orange, Art Anthology Juicy Colorations Spray, against the purple Art Anthology Velvet medium. The spray resists the medium. So cool!
**Do you notice anything interesting about the last two elephants? If you do, you might want to know how I did that. I'll be doing a blog post on this technique for my next Gel Press blog post. (see the ** at bottom of this post for the answer)
Here is a sneak peek of my project for Art Anthology's blog on June 3 that will include a tutorial.
And here is a sneak peek of my project for the Gel Press blog on June 8th. I used Natalie Kalbach's bird foam/rubber stamp set for this project.
** Did you notice that the elephants are facing in different directions? I used Natalie's stamp for them, so how did I get one of them facing the opposite direction? I will show you how I did it in my tutorial on the Gel Press blog on June 8th.
