Positive Prints from a Stencil on a Gel Press | Lavinia World DT

 Hey Procraftinators! It's time for another Lavinia World Design Team Project! I broke out the gel press for this one and had a ton of fun with the new release stencils! I'm loving these stencils! I chose a couple under the sea themed stencils. One, well, probably wasn't meant to be under the sea, but I used it that way anyways. So, today, I am going to show how you get a positive print on your gel press. The positive print, is exactly what your stencil looks like, basically. So, on a gel press, it's what you stencil covers when you lay it down. Which means, you will have to take a negative print, before you get your positive print. I wanted to use the gel press because I wanted the exact image that the stencil looks like and the gel press made the most sense to get exactly what I wanted. If this isn't making any sense, I think watching the video will make this crystal clear.

I just love how this background turned out and how Jalandhar looks on it. This was a ton of fun to make and I hope you enjoy the video. As usual, I have more finished pictures for you and a supply list below.
