Just add Alcohol!

Don't you just love alcohol inks?! They are one of those things I come back to time and time again. This time I'm layering over paint, through a stencil, and then lifting off the Gel Press. This is a super-easy technique which gives you great results. 

Look out for part 2 coming in a few days :-)

Gel Press Printed Patchwork!

It's that time again! Yes, time for another 'Print-to-Project' video for Gel Press, and this time I'm using my Art Printing Texture Plates by Carabelle Studio in quite a different way to create multi-coloured layered backgrounds without the mud. Yes, NO MUD!

Here's a few of my prints ..... 

And in the second video which will follow in a few days, I stick and patchwork my prints to create a background for these adorable little fishies, which I stuck onto a burlap page in my Dina Wakley journal.

A journal full of colour!

Oooh this little journal is a combination of all my favourite things! I used the Wrap Journal Die by Eileen Hull for Sizzix and filled it full of colourful prints I made on the Gel Press, using mostly the Art Printing plates by Carabelle Studio for pattern.

I decorated it using stamps from my new range for Carabelle Studio. I'm really loving these little flowers - they are so easy to stamp and cut out and make a great and easy little addition to a page :-) 

My inner pages are a crazy, slightly chaotic mix of folds and sizes. But that's how I like it! It means I can cram a lot of pages into a small journal.

I'll be teaching this as a class at the Craftrange, Burnley (and for this of you who may be wondering - probably also at Art from the Heart at a later date) It's already quite full but there may be one or two places left ....
