"For the LOVE Of" my DIY No-Gelatin Printing Plate... AMAZING Inspiration by DeeDee Catron

Hi Folks! DeeDee here today, inspiring you with a layout and one GIANT Amazing Mold Rubber PLATE. If you need a bit of a refresher course, check back to Susan's post about creating your own heavy duty long lasting printing plate from Amazing Mold Rubber. Basically.... it's a plate or slab of a non-stick surface on which you create patterns and textures using paints, mists, inks, and other colorants that are then transferred or "Mono-printed" to a sheet of paper. Today, I've followed Susan's example but made my plate 12 1/4" x 12 1/4" to accommodate patterned paper for scrapbooking. I used the plate to help create the background on this layout here :

Please be aware, the paper on the bottom did start patterned. It's a sheet of paper from 7 Dots Studio. I just enhanced it and made it my own by printing on top. I've used gesso and glimmer mist on the plate.

You can view the background process in the following video:

And here is a close up of the area where the awesome
rubber plate made its appearance!!

Other supplies include: Viva Las VegaStamps! (Coffee Ring Stamp,) UmWowStudio (Circle Confetti Stencil, Chipboard Butterfly, Heart Confetti,) May Arts, Prima, Gauche Alchemy, adhesive and thread.

I'm loving working on a plate, then to paper, rather than directly on paper, because if I mess up (and I tend to) I can just wipe the rubber plate off. If I had been working directly on paper and ended up being not happy, I'd have to trash it and start over.

Wanna see what other things I end up doing
with my GIANT Rubber Plate?
