This month's Remarkable PINworthy Blog Tour had me a bit perplexed. I don't have any new beginnings. Or do I? The Stampin' Up! year just began in July so that could be a new beginning. That wasn't quite what I was thinking. Then I discovered a "new to me" technique. Gelatin Printing or Monoprinting!!
I had made my own gelatin plat using Knox gelatin. Once it was set up, I mixed white acrylic paint with Ink refills, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, and Pear Pizazz. I put dots of each color on my gelatine plate and then brayered them all together. Once I was happy with it, I laid the "Dots" decorative mask on top of the paint, then diagonally, I laid the "Stripes" decorative mask on top. Then I laid a piece of whisper white card and pressed firmly all over the surface. I peeled off the cardstock and VIOLA! New background paper!!!
Then I made a bookmark. I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and added a piece of Organza Ribbon.
This technique was SO MUCH FUN!! You never know what you're going to get!
I hope you enjoyed my "new beginning!"
