Happy Friday all!! Are you as excited for Friday as I am?! I had a super productive scrappy weekend last weekend using the Swirlydoos.com July kit Madame. Something about this kit just speaks to me and I adore it!!
The first page I made was to show how to make the background page using the gelatos. I loved the graduated piece from the Sunrise Sunset collection but just could not bring myself to use it as a background piece that was mostly covered up...so I improvised using the gelatos.
Here is the video on how to make the background:
I also used the gelatos to paint this gorgeous flower and create a cluster on the corner of my photo.
This video shows you how to paint with gelatos as above and to apply direct to chipboard and get a gradient look as on the bird cage below.
This is the page that I'm submitting for Angelica's Butterfly challenge over at Swirlydoos.
I made this butterfly using the gelatos and the jar of Pumpkin spice silks glaze that was included in the kit.
Here is a close up of the bird cage. I made the splatters using the Lindy's pigment powder that was included in the embellishment add on and using the dropper from the gelato tech kit.
Here is another butterfly but this one was made using the TH distress markers and covered in Silks glazes for that shimmery effect.
One last page...
This page was not made for anything in particular. I love how this turned out. This is a photo of my son Colin when he went shooting with his dad. Here I used the gelatos to color the modeling paste a light orange and also used them to color the chipboard bar code. The bird on the barb wire was covered with the Ferro texture paint that came in the mixed media add on.
I know this was a long post but I've been on such a creative streak I wanted to share it all with you so far. I hope you like all the different gelato techniques and I hope you try them for yourselves.
Thanks for stopping by
