Today I used an 8X8 canvas board. I started with rubbing on some Snow cone and Metallic Blueberry Gelatos in the upper left corner. Bottom corner I used Lemon and Mango gelatos, sprayed with water and used a paint brush and blended.
Next I took some of the Lemon Gelatos and crushed it and mixed some in with some Whipped Spackle, got some stencil and spread it on. I then took my black Gelatos and went around the edge and blended with my finger.
Colored her with Copic Markers
Flowers are sprayed with Passion Fruit, and Lemon Gelatos. I cut small pieces off and put them in a spray bottle, added water and mixed well. The more you add, the darker color you can get.
Tammy Louise joins us with her first project of the week
I've altered a notebook today. Showing you how wonderful the colors can work together. First cover canvas and book with Gesso, then the 102 Stencil Collection was used for texture with Copper colored texture Luxe paste. Use the Steam Punk Gelatos for color on my project, right over the texture. Sprayed water allowing the color to drain downward and completely coat the canvas. The Pitt Gold pen from a block and splashed around in spots using the stencil tool and used the Walnut Brown Pitt Calligraphy pen to write the word dream in the film roll.
Time to embellish using some fabulous products from LDRS Creative like the Dewdrop Circle cut in half, the Best Friends Sentiment, the Gilded Labels die under the resin bodice and then the accent die from the Gilded Ovals die. All of the dies were coated in Gesso and Gelatos, then glued in place. The Prima ribbon flower was glued down and tied and the project was done.
The Texture Luxe colors and Gelatos blended so well creating dreamy layers of pinks and Golds. The more color you add, the richer your project looks.
Stephanie is back with a second project!
I have a very CAS card to show you using the Gelatos as a background.
To create it, I used some masking tape onto a piece of mixed media cardstock ( to create a 1" border. I then layered a few Gelatos from Purple to bright blue, and gently scrubbed the surface with a baby wipe. After that, I removed the tape, drew a line with my grey Pitt Pen on each side, stamped a sentiment from the Best Friends set (again with a black Pitt Pen), put it onto a piece of black cardstock and then on the gelato background.
I coloured Jeans and a Tee with my Copic markers, fussy cut her out and outlined the edges with my grey Pitt Pen, and then paste her on the background. The final step was to take out a black cardstock and fold it in two to create a card base, stack some 3D foam adhesive on the back of the gelato background and then adhere it to the cardbase. Voilà!
