Today, I have a project for you using the amazing GelPress and denim! I never throw away or donate old worn out jeans. Denim is one of the best crafting supplies around. I added a supply list at the end of the post so please check that too.
I made a few pieces to be used at a later time...not sure on what, but come on - the possibilities are endless. Added to a stained pair of favorite jeans that you can't part with. A journal page, card, mixed media project, gift bag...you get the idea.
So, let's get started...
My supplies - paint, GelPress, brayer, brushes and denim.
Here is the first printing done on a pocket that was cut from an old pair of jeans. I used pink and fuscia paint on my full size GelPress. I then added some dark sorbet Art Anthology with its beautiful shimmer to the GelPress - Impressable - Circles.
Then, a bit of highlight with bubble gum pink. Oh La La.
Next, came a layer on the GelPress with white and platinum paint.And, a bit more highlight with pink.
For the next piece my 13 year old daughter hopped in for some printing fun. She is a GelPress pro. She decided on color and design. She used a big chuck of denim that was frayed at the bottom. Yum!
This piece below is the ghost print pulled after the initial printing that Gabby made. I think this is just amazing. We literally used this chunk to clean the GelPress just a bit and look at the awesomeness...
Here are our finished pieces just waiting for new life in a future project. You notice that the ghost print was cut into a heart shape? How cute would that be just glued right onto a pair of jeans or a purse?!?! Boy, the wheels are turning.
Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to check back every day for new exciting projects from the AlteredPages.com Design Team.
Have a great weekend.
