I'll admit it...I'm obsessed with the Gel Press! The truth is, once I start mono printing, it's really hard for me to stop! What I love most is how fun, fast and easy it is! You can work on multiple prints at one time, and before you know it you have a huge lot of prints ready to use in all sorts of ways!

I hope you can join me in my “Everyday Words” chipboard book workshop. We'll first “play” with the Gel Press. You'll learn easy mark making techniques using assorted objects found laying around the house as well as using wonderful stencils, foam stamps and so much more. We'll then create multiple page inserts using the Gel Press, assorted Deco Arts Paints, Tim Holtz cut outs and more. Then we'll move on to the cover. It will be embellished with the a newly cast centerpiece created by making a mold out of assorted found bits, ultimately ending up with a simple chipboard book that packs a punch!
