Permanent ink pen
Adhesive – double-sided suggested or paper glue
1. Find a Gel Press ™ print from your stash and stamp the writing words with permanent ink. Do this as many times as it takes to fill the page. Set aside.
2. Take other prints and rip many coordinating colors to fill your journal page. Glue them down like a patch work quilt.
3. Another mono printed piece is die cut with a pattern that you can see through to bottom print . The first piece with the stamped words is adhered to patterned cardstock. The die cut piece is adhered on top. Lastly, a square of printed book paper is cut into a square and adhered on the left side. All of this is adhered to the journal page. This gives dimension, depth, and interest.
4, Paint, permanent marker, more stamping, and a hand-made flower finishes the look to the journal pages with my flair and expressions. The image of the woman is a graphic design I created and printed on vellum and adhered on the little square. Numbers and the words “inside out” was added as a symbolic part of the art piece. Gel pens, and permanent ink used.
Whether a journal or an altered book, layering with Gel Press ™ offers fabulous results!
