DIY Artist Supply Pouch with Gel Press Petites

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:


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!

Here are a couple of other ways to use petite plates seen HERE and HERE.
