Gel Plate Prints on Paper and Fabric

Continuing on from yesterday I finished making my gel plate prints on cardstock. Now that they are all done, I’m going to use them to make a small journal.

I also managed to get some great prints on fabric. I’m going to use this for the cover of my journal. Check back tomorrow to see how this turns out.

  1. Hi Linda, I love the idea of the 30 day challenge to do something every day! I’ve been working on that on my own, so I will join you guys! I am especially interested in how you will use the stencils you made with your glue gun. I tried that recently and didn’t care for the results. I think the dried glue was too thick, resulting in prints that were very muddy looking. Have you made any prints using the hot glue stencils? Are you placing the stencils on the plate and then pulling prints leaving the stencil in place? Or are you making a mark with the stencil and then pulling the print after you remove the stencil? Thanks! – Joan

    1. Glue stencils are not really meant to be used to make perfect patterns or designs; they tend to work better when they are used in combination with other techniques. Yes I use glue stencils on fabric in lots of different ways, however I work in layers so the stencil shapes get partially buried under layers of other paint and stencils.
