Simply Cards And Papercraft Masterclass Gelatine Printing

Hey guys,

Just popping in for a bit of a heads-up. You all know that I LOVE writing for magazines and it keeps me pretty busy, well I have already got some favourite articles coming out this year and here is a heads-up about one of them.

Kim Dellow's Gelatine printing masterclass in Simply Cards and Papercraft 134

It is a masterclass that I did for Simply Cards and Papercraft about monoprinting with gelatine plates, which as you know is a cheap, DIY alternative to Gelli plates.

Why is this one of my favourites so far this year? Well for a few reasons actually, I just love how the cards turned out (yeah it always surprises me, even though I'm the one making them - are you like that too or is that just me?!), the colours are lush and I love the way that the guys at Practical Publishing make them look gorgeous (I want ALL their photo props and equipment (and skill LOL!)).

But there is an even bigger reason why it is a favourite of mine and that is I get to share with you one of my favourite techniques for getting cheap, easy, fun and unique printed cards using inks.

Now if any of you have tried using inks on a gelatine plate it doesn't always work out that successfully but with this masterclass you can put those niggles behind you. So have fun and I can't wait to see what you do, please do come back to share with me any of your makes using this masterclass I would love to see them!

You will find the full masterclass in issue 134 of Simply Cards and Papercraft and there is a bonus card on their website, which, by the way, has lots of lovely extra makes from loads of other designers, so a good place to check out regularly #hint #hint.

Oh and if you are looking for the gorgeous Penny Black dies that I used in the article they are over at CraftsULove.

Catch you later geliprintators!

    1. You have just got to stop saying things like that! My head is too big as it is! (Say more! Say more! - shh ego that is enough now LOL!) Thanks Aimes, I'm taking the compliment gracefully (and dancing around the room ungracefully!). Kx

  2. You have to have a good product to start with, no photography skills will enhance anything that is not photogenic in the first place.

    I always take pics on my phone as i go along so i can see what my project looks like, especially if i am struggling with it. I trust a picture more than my own eyes lol.

    You do make fantastic projects! :-) xxx

  3. Ahh thank you :) I'm so glad you like it and thanks for the lovely words. Hey great tip on the photos too. I sometimes use photos when I'm trying to work out placement of things. It is great if you can't make your mind up between different designs, I photograph the different placements then do a direct comparison. Sometimes it is just easier to see it through the camera isn't it? Kx
