Family IS Everything!
Hi there, today I want to share a project created for the monthly hop with Designer Craft Connection it's a small photo album I created to carry a few family photos with me. I had this little canvas book and decided to play with some paints and a new product for me. I've never used a gel press plate. I received one from Gel Press and I used it to create backgrounds for this little 4 1/2' X 7"photo album.
This Gel Press plate is not "gelatin", this plate is super durable and reusable, it's easy to clean and you can use the package as storage when not in use.
This plate is so easy to use, when you remove it from the package make sure to remove the clear film from the block before use.
It can't get any easier, once the film is removed, you can begin to add your paint.
Start adding your paints in any pattern, you can also use a brayer to roll the paints into a thin layer of paint, you can also create texture with anything from stencils, textured paper towels, etc
Once done, gently remove the paper/fabric and you will have a beautiful print.
Clean the plate with water and continue making more prints, here are photos of the rest of the prints I made for my photo album
Here I used a textured paper towel to remove some paint and add the pattern to the plate. I ended up with a fun print on my paper towel to use later on in a different project.
Here is another print made.
Here is the final project, a nice and colorful photo album I can add photos and messages about my family and either carry in my purse or display in my office.
This is the front cover
Here you can see the back and front covers, these are the only pages made from canvas
