Leaf Prints With a Gel Plate

by Lydia Fiedler

Preserve nature's beauty with beautiful leaf monoprints.

Supplies

  • Gel monoprinting plate (Gel Press used here)
  • Acrylic paint (Golden Open used here)
  • Soft rubber brayer (Speedball brayer used here)
  • Leaves (Ivy and pecan leaves used here)

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Apply paint to your gel printing plate.

  2. Step 2

    Use a brayer to evenly distribute the paint in a thin layer across the plate.

  3. Step 3

    Place a leaf directly into the paint on the gel plate.

  4. Step 4

    Cover the plate with your paper and rub and press to get good contact with the paper around the leaf, and between the leaf and the plate. Do not lift paper yet.

  5. Step 5

    Securing the paper in place with one hand on one edge or corner of the gel plate, lift a corner of your paper just enough to remove the leaf without shifting the paper. Lift the leaf off, don't drag it, to preserve the detail of the veins which are left on the plate.

  6. Step 6

    Carefully place the paper back down on the plate and rub and press to transfer all the detail to your paper.

  7. Step 7

    Remove the paper from the plate and enjoy the nature print. Experiment with different color combinations and single colors for monochrome prints.

  8. Step 8

    Use the leaf print in a project.

Die Cut Relief

by Dina Kowal

In art, 'relief' is used to describe raised sculpture elements on a flat base. Use die cuts to create this effect in a mixed media scene.

Supplies

  • Dies (Spellbinders Truckin' Through the Seasons die set and Three's a Crowd Contour Steel Rule Die used here)
  • Heavy or textured paper (Fabriano Studio 140# Cold Press watercolor paper used here)
  • Embossing folder or stencil (A Colorful Life Designs Falling Snow stencil used here)
  • Scoring tool
  • Decoupage medium (Liquitex Matte Gel used here)
  • Gesso (optional)
  • Craft paints, including white (various brands used here)
  • Flat paint brush
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Prepare die cuts to create a scene. Heavy or textured cardstock is best (cold press watercolor was used for this sample).

  2. Step 2

    Prepare a background panel, adding texture with a stencil or embossing folder. A stencil was used to emboss the panel for the sample (you can find instructions for this technique HERE.). An embossing folder will give even more dimension.

  3. Step 3

    Assemble die cuts if required.

  4. Step 4 (Optional)

    Using a scoring board, score along the edges of the base panel on the back side to create a raised frame detail.

  5. Step 5

    Prepare the base panel with a brushed layer of matte gel medium or another decoupage medium.

  6. Step 6

    Place the die cuts onto the base while the gel medium is still wet.

  7. Use the brush to coat the die cut with more gel medium, tapping into any raised or detailed areas to ensure full coverage. Brush or tap into goopy corners so the medium dries evenly. Brush strokes or texture in the gel medium will enhance the final results of the technique.

    Allow the panel to dry completely.

    If you have used colored paper, apply a coat of gesso to the panel to cover the color before proceeding.

  8. Step 7

    Choose a dark base color of acrylic paint. Cover the panel, taking care to get into all crevices and around all edges of the die cuts. Allow the panel to dry completely.

  9. Step 8

    Use a dry brush technique to add another layer of color to the panel. Add paint to your palette. Make sure there is no additional moisture in your brush. Pull a small amount of paint away and brush it back and forth into a very thin layer. Use light strokes, brushing only the raised and open areas of the panel. The addition of color will be subtle and the first color should show through.

  10. Step 9

    Repeat Step 8 with another color after the panel dries.

  11. Add a few more highlights with a lighter color, if you wish.

  12. Step 10

    Use white paint to dry brush over the entire panel, using the technique in step 8.

    TIP:
    Rotate your panel so the highlights pick up on all sides of the die cuts and scored lines.

  13. Step 11

    Use the panel on a card front or other project.

Duo Texture Stenciling

by Sandi MacIver

Use a stencil to embellish inside and outside a stamped image.

Supplies

  • Cardstock
  • Stamp (Picket Fence Studios Swallowtail Beauty used here)
  • Stencil (Picket Fence Studios Fancy Flourishes used here)
  • Inks (VersaMark (for embossing) and Gina K Wild Dandelion, Tangerine Twist and Cherry Red used here)
  • Stamping Platform (optional)
  • Heat tool
  • Black embossing powder
  • Dimensional medium (Picket Fence Studio Paper Glaze – Snowdrop White used here)
  • Pointed tip palette knife
  • Painter’s tape
  • Post it Note Tape
  • Blending brushes
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (Adhesive, hard board, paper trimmer, paper towel, anti-static pouch)

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Use a stamping platform to stamp a large image onto heavy cardstock (Neenah Classic Crest 110# cover used here).

  2. Step 2

    Cover with black embossing powder, shake off the excess and heat set.

  3. Step 3

    Fix the art piece to a flat surface (thick cardboard).

  4. Step 4

    Use Post it Note Tape to adhere a stencil over the art piece and to mask the edges of the panel.

  5. Step 5

    Using blending brushes or another applicator, start adding the color through the stencil inside the image. Start with the lightest color.

  6. Step 6

    Continue layering colors until you are pleased with the effect. For the sample, orange was added from center out about half way, and then the red from the center out about a quarter of the way.

  7. Step 7

    Use a dry paper towel to wipe off any excess ink sitting on top of the stencil. This is very important, as the texture paste will pick up this color and muddy your background.

  8. Step 8

    Use the painter tape to mask off the edges of the inked areas (butterfly wings here).

  9. Step 9

    Working with a small amount of paste in a small section at a time, add a smooth flat coat of the paste anywhere the background is showing.

  10. Step 10

    Remove the tape and the stencil. WASH the stencil and the palette knife immediately.

  11. Step 11

    Use fine tip tweezers to remove any wet paste sitting on top of the back embossing.

    TIP:
    This is way easier to do when the paste is still wet, so don’t let it sit.

  12. Step 12

    Where necessary, refresh any black embossed lines with a fine black Sharpie.

  13. Step 13

    Assemble the card as desired to complete the project.
