Video Tutorial: Altered Cassette Tape and new stencils 'Wild and Free'!

Hello everyone! Third video in a row dedicated to the launch of the my new stencil release, and thrid video about upcycling: this time I jumped into the eighties and revamped an old cassette tape. Inside there's a minialbum, gel printed of course, but in the end is the cover that I like most, made with alcohol inks and stencils.
If you are curious and maybe want to have a try, in case you have one or more of these cassette at home, here the video tutorial from start to finish:

I made the pages out of a gel printed masterboard, this time I used archival ink on the Gelli® plate instead of the usual acrylic paint:
And the back cover:
 And here the stencils I used in the video, already available in my Etsy shop:

Video Tutorial: Gel Printing on Jeans and new stencils 'Wild and Free'!

Hello everyone, I am super excited because today I start to showcase my new line of stencil 'Wild and Free'! The last big release for this year (I think...): 6 new designs made especially for gel printing but also perfect for cardmaking and MixedMedia. I started with a minialbum made out of an old jeans (don't fit anymore, aaargh) with tips and tricks about gel printing on it. I hope you enjoy it!
On the left I gel printed on cardstock, on the right straight on jeans:

For the back cover I glued  a large piece of lace used as texture plate for gel printing a while ago
And here the stencils I used in the video, already available in my Etsy shop:

Jane Davenport Galore: Mermaid Mini Album

I am a huge fan of @janedavenport and a while ago I finally got her latest book 'Marvelous Mermaids'. I literally dived in!! The last part, full of gorgeous projects to make, inspired me to make my own mermaid album: I pushed my boundaries, I tried new things and I totally love what I done. A really FIN-tastic book!😊
I used old watercolours, I drew every single mermaid:
I started with gel printed backgrounds and adhered every single elements to them:
This mermaid was so challenging to colour!

Dream Stencil Week 3: MixedMedia Collage Stencil by Laurie

Welcome to the last post of this week dedicated to Dream Stencil: this one is my favourite of this bunch, a MixedMedia collage stencil envisioned by Laurie of @scrapwithLaurie.
I used it to alter a book cover:
I just scraped out black embossing paste through the stencil and highlighted with mica powder:
Here I sponged Distress Oxide over a gel printed background:
I got a lovely velvety look using DecoArt SoSoft fabric acrylic paint on the Gelli plate:
