Hi, it’s Josefine. I was in the mood for playing with my Gel Press and create some mono prints. While I was getting ready for it, I wondered what I should do with those prints. I bet, I’m not the only asking herself that question – what to do with all those prints?
That’s why I thought I could share some ideas with you. First, here is the video that shows you how I created all those prints and then what I did with them.
First up, I created bookmarks. These are great as presents or just a little extra when you send a letter to someone.
I also decorated a journal cover with quite a few of the prints. I got that idea from a crafty friend and loved it so much that I had to try it. This is now also the home of the mini journal that I’ve been creating throughout the last couple of weeks.
A set of blank greeting cards can come in handy. The moment you need one, you might not have time to create one from scratch. The mono prints are great for backgrounds and focal points alike. You just need to add a sentiment and it’s good to go.
