Gwen and Beverly joined me this past week for four hours of tag-making, topped off with a gel printing session. The hit of the printing session seemed to be the fun foam prints, so I thought I'd share the tutorial again:
It all starts with a dollar store foam surface.
I'll be taking this one a little further than I did in the video above, using a round-tipped-impression-making-thingy to add some texture. Incidentally, a knitting needle or dried-up ballpoint works just as well.
And while the gel printing session was fun, the main event meant that Beverly and Gwen were hard at work creating layer upon layer to bring a series of tags from background to finished product.
I neglected to get photos of the finishes but they were all certainly looking fabulous when I caught these in-progress photos.
I'm hoping your week was at least as much fun, 'cause it's hard to beat the creative life!
