Gel Press Monoprints & Layouts by Donna Salazar
There are a few things that are so relaxing to me that I get to a place of zen and working with the Gel Press plates are definitely one of those things. I went to a scrapbook retreat a week ago and almost the entire time I was playing with my Gel Press plates. I've been experimenting with different "tools" to use and some of my favorites are bubble wrap and my embossing plates.
My best friend came over this weekend and we spent the whole day playing with my Gel Press plates. She had never even seen one of these plates but she was able to create some gorgeous monoprints. That is what I LOVE about this tool... anybody can create some amazing artwork even if they have never done this before!!!
So here are some of the prints that I made in just two days of playing. Some prints take up the whole page and some I made to go down the center or off center in a strip so that I can use it for a scrapbook layout. You can click on the photos for a slide show of these prints.
And here are the layouts that I created. The first is of me and my daughter at Disneyland on the Dumbo ride. I used several of my dies and stamps from Spellbinders®: Cascading Circles, Cascading Butterflies, Rose Creations, Journal Words Stamp Set and my discontinued Wonderful Wings dies. I also used my Lace Ribbon, Texture Ribbon and Tissue Tape from the Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® line.
And here is the second layout with a photo of my grandson, Hunter, at the park. I used my Cascading Stars die from Spellbinders® and my Lace Ribbon, Gold Pigment Powder, Girlie Grunge Art Medium and E-Z Stars Runner with double sided, star shaped adhesives.
