Last week, we asked everyone on our Facebook page which products they would like more inspiration / training in. A majority of you mentioned the Journey Gel Press and our Acrylic Paints. We have a beautiful project layout just for you!
With these Journey Media items you can create so many intricate and gorgeous projects. In our 2017-2018 Inspiration Book & Catalog we released 8 new Acrylic Paint colors and a brand new exclusive Journey Gel Press plate. Yes, these are worth the investment. You will soon fall in love with them!
Today, we are using our new Acrylic Paint colors and stencils, but you can use the Journey Gel Press with our Liquid Colors, Silks, Splashes and more!
Grab your favorite stencil and an Acrylic Paint Color. We started with Beach Ball Acrylic Paint. First, add your paint to the Journey Gel Press plate. You’ll want to use a Brayer to smooth out your paint. Then lay your stencil – Artful Wall Stencil in this case – on top of the paint. Lift your stencil and press your cardstock panel into the plate to pick up the print. Create a second imprint with this color / stencil combo. You’ll use this piece of cardstock to stamp your favorite sentiment and die cut a couple Blooming Details.
Repeat these steps alternating stencils and colors. You can create a partial imprint on certain sections of your cardstock. For example, we grabbed our new Limeade Splash Acrylic Paint added it to the Journey Gel Press, laid our Bubble Bubble Stencil over the paint, and then press our cardstock partially into the print. We repeated this color and stencil for the second imprint.
The Journey Gel Press will bring out your creative as it provides endless possibilities. Use your imagination and test things out. Create full, partial or even quarter imprints to your project. Just reminder to relax and let go, you may not be able to recreate a project exactly – that’s all part of the creative fun.
Finish your project with shimmer, Mirror Silver Cardstock is a fantastic accent. Then add your favorite memory. This particular layout is gorgeous and the perfect fit to go into a Journey Days Album.
