Hi! This is Tania Ahmed from Nat Kalbach's Creative Squad!
This month the Creative Squad was asked to play along with Nat’s Foam Stamplifier Challenge and my prompt was Print! I love printmaking and I love ArtFoamies stamps, so it was almost as if this prompt was made with me in mind, haha!
I put together a little mini album made using 12x12 cardstock that I stamped on using Nat’s ArtFoamies and a 5x7 Gelli Arts® plate.
Apply a thin layer of acrylic paint to Gelli Arts® plate.
Use the Gelli Plate to ink the Art Foamies and then stamp on to cardstock and repeat until the paint just begins to dry on the plate.
Pull a print with the remainder of the paint that is left on the plate.
You can use this clean off paper for collages.
Apply more paint to plate and repeat steps until you are happy with your print.
Score your cardstock at 3”, 6” and 9”.
Rotate paper 90 degrees and score again at 3”, 6” and 9”.
Cut up to the score lines as shown below.
Accordion fold the paper which will form a little 3” x 3” journal/album.
Tape or glue the backs of the pages together to make it a little more sturdy. You get leave some sides free to use as pockets.
To finish off the book spine, add washi tape for decoration!
