Oh how I love Gel Press Petite plates. They come in so many wonderful shapes from wings, triangles, ovals, hexagons, petite plates speciallly designed for bible journaling, and more. The possibilities are endless. During the month of November, there is a great sale on the Gel Press site on petite plates, a perfect gift for the creative in your family or household.
I love all the petite plates including the hexagon. Here I created a marker/pencil pouch to carry my art supplies using the hexagon plate. I was thinking this pouch would make a great personalized stocking stuffer too.
The canvas pouch is under $1.30 and a perfect size for watercolor pencils, crayons, markers, a watercolor set and brushes, petite plates, paint, a small brayer, or whatever creative supplies you want to take on the go.
Below are the supplies I used and a simple how to:
- Gel Press Hexagon Petite Plate
- Gel Press 3 x 5 plate
- Amazing stencils from The Artisans Cache (owned and products designed by talented fellow Gel Press Team Member Jackie Jimerson)
- Picket Fence Studio Flower Stencil, Picket Fence Studio Floral Damask Stencil, and The Crafter’s Workshop Corn Cob Etching stencil
- Acrylic block
- Gelcessory Texture Combs
- Acrylic paint in a soft palette of Titan Buff, Folkart Color Flash in blue, portrait pink, Payne’s gray, and others.
Start by applying paint on the hexagon plate and adding texture using stamps or Gelcessories Texture Combs. Stamp a pattern on the canvas bag as desired. Once the paint is dry on the canvas, add additional texture with stencils. For a finishing touch, add a little bit of definition with a Stabilo Woody Pencil (i.e. the brown). Personalize by adding a name, word or saying. I used one of my awesome stencils from The Artisans Cache on Etsy to add the word ‘Create.’
So head on over to the Gel Press site to check out the sale. Check out the Gel Press Instagram for more inspiration using the Gel Press petites as well as all gel plates. Amazing!
