Coffee Lover's Blog Hop Spring Summer All Blooms

STAMPlorations  Is a Super sponsor for the hop and has been for several of them. Shery is very generous and has amazing products. 
I used ARTplorations Stencil called ALL BLOOMS

I used white paint and my gel plate

 Here is how the white on white looked before I watercolored it.

I watercolored the flowers. With the watercolor paint going over the acrylic paint.  I used Japanese stab binding to make a little art journal.

 Next project I did the white on white again but this time I left it with just the white on white

I had a scrap piece of cardstock that I had printed with my gel plate. I used that piece with CUTplorations Zen Coffee Cup Layering Dies
I love how the rainbow look of the monotyped dic cut coffee cup and the white on white background. I did stab binding on this little journal. 

My third project used the same ALL BLOOMS stencil and my gel plate. 

How the gel plate looked when I pulled up the stencil after I had put the white acrylic paint on.

Unlike the first project I did where I added the water color after I printed it, This time I put the paint right to the gel plate. I  sprayed it with a mist of water before putting on my white cardstock.

Doesn't it make an amazing cool abstract floral print? Again I made this into a little art journal with the stab binding.
