A Tall Dandelion in a Wildflower Meadow by Jo Rice

Hi everyone, Jo from the design team here again for another Mindful Monday. Thanks so much for popping in, it is always a pleasure to spend time with you, and today we are going to create a gel press print.

First, we will add some elements inks onto the circular gel press to create the background, with a few gentle splashes of water to create an interesting texture in the sky area. Then we will stamp the floral designs direct onto the gel press using Versafine Clair inks. Now we are ready to take a print, this is where things can become unpredictable, yet it’s just the most fun thing to do as the results are always amazing.

Pastel pencils and some Stickles glitter glue are used to add those ever-important finishing touches.

So, plump up your cushions and get the kettle on.

You can catch up with Jo’s crafting activities on her JR-Crafts Blogspot.
