Funky Doodles!



Oh yes! It's the time again ... time for another two-part video for the Gel Press 'print-to-project' series.

As a life-long doodler, it made total sense to me to doodle on the gel plate with paint pens, of which of course, I have quite a few ;-)

The Gel Press is AMAZING at releasing the media that you put on it, so it's ok if the design dries as you go along, you can take your time with this. And then add a couple of layers of paint and pull it all off. It a really fun way of making unique prints.

Hope you have fun with this one!

Here's a couple of progress shots ....






The second part of the video will be published on Saturday, so join me then for part 2 where I show you how I turn my prints into a dinky little journal...



Bye for now!

Messy art journaling!


Textures Printing by Birgit Koopsen for Carabelle Studio

Sometimes I just want to be messy. It's true. It's very liberating to just start 'scrubbing' paint on a page and letting it all wander.


I hand drew a few whimsical / primitive style houses using the fabulous Stabilo All pencil.



And then I used some scrap of gel printed papers to add collage elements. You might recognise some Art Texture Printing Plates in there  by Carabelle Studios. Every bit of my Gel Printed papers gets used ... eventually ;-)
