Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a new found love of mine.  I recently started keeping an art journal and I’m having an amazing time with it.

I’m a beginner and I totally love getting my fingers dirty with paint!! It is totally freeing to just play!

Once I finished getting my paint down and dried, I used Lavinia Stamps to add my magical garden.

Take a look:

Lavinia Stamps

I love how this turned out!! I love that I created it!! I can’t wait to give this a try again.  I’m such a clean and simple crafter that when I see pieces like this I’m amazed.  It all makes sense to me now.

I’m going to enter this into the Craft Stampers Take It Make It Challenge. I miss those ladies so I’m stopping by to share my work with them.  I hope I’m able to amaze them.

Mono Prints with a Gel Press Plate

Second Post for Today

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today sharing my mono prints that I created with a gel press plate!!

I was introduce to Gel Press Plates at Creativation!! I watched Marybeth Shaw, the founder of StencilGirl Products, demonstrate how to use them!! She made me laugh with this quote, “It’s Not Done Yet”, she was referring to her plate that still had paint on it, even after she created a bunch of backgrounds.  I was tickled.  So when I arrived home I had to pick one up.

Now I have 4 different plates and still want more!!  LOL!!

Take a look at what I created today:

I played with February 2017 Mandalas, Circle and Spheres Collection by Maria McGuire stencil along with Vicki Boutin Arylic Paints Set 2.

I love the results that you get when you use the gel press plate and stencils.  You will never get the same print twice.  That is the beauty of this technique.

Check out what I created with this print:

 

I totally love this!! This card turned out perfect!!

I’m entering this card into the Muse Challenge #214. Anita Bowden is the Muse this week, check out her card:

I did not see her card until after I created my prints.  So I was inspired by the press plate, the paints and the stencil.  My card just so happen to fall right in line with Anita’s.  Thats creativity at its best to me.

So what do you think?  Please let me know below!!
