At first, I wasn't too sure if I would like the gelatos that came in the technique kit, but I have discovered how versatile they are and you can really use them with anything! I know that they are super "blendable" and great on canvases, but I always like to see what else can be done with different mediums. I tried out a lot of different ways to use them, but I think my favorite way is to combine them with mists. For these to tags that I made, I mixed them with the Smooch Spritz that also came in this month's technique kit to get the background for my tags. AND, if you would like more details, I have a video tutorial how to create this background on the You Tube!
I had a lot of 12X12 "scraps" from the paper left over from my wall hanging that I made (see post below), which were perfect for adding lots of layers for other layouts. the Dusty Attic frame is not in the kit, but it just went so well with my design, that I had to add it. I painted it with Silks paints, one from the kit, and the green is "Fern" that I already had. The black paper is punched with the Martha Stewart Embroidery Deep Edge punch. I used Perfect Pearls to trace around the paper under the photo.
"Life is But a Dream" Layout
Again, more use of my gutted paper from the wall hangings. This layout is based on this month's sketch, with WAY more layers. The butterflies are from Angelica's etsy shop. the dainty vines are from a Memory Box corner die.
Thanks for looking!
