SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I am super excited that I have moved to the Swirlydoos Education Team with Lynne and Miranda!!!! This is a wonderful opportunity to do something new, and I am LOVING IT! I want to give a special shout out to Lynne- THANK YOU for all of your tips and tricks on making videos. There is a link to my first one below. I'm sure I'll get better, but this one is kind of LOOONG. So, this is what I did with the technique kit this month, along with the paper and other goodies from the main kit and add ons:
"Never Give Up" Wall Hanging
The November technique kit features Faber-Castell Gelatos, which are basically a creamy pigment, super blendeable media. It was really fun to play around with these and find out how I like to use them. After trying many different things with them, I found a couple of techniques that are fun, and unique.
The other way I used the gelatos is to create a mixture of them with Distress Ink again, and adding Smooch Spritz in Vanilla Shimmer (It also comes in the kit!) to make a liquid, which I then used for soaking my wood flourish. You can see it has a creamy, translucence to it.
I also mentioned in my video, but wanted to point out that I used Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac to make sure that my stuff stays stuck!!
And, I loved making this wall hanging so much, I am making a few more to make a set. Here is the second one I made:
"Imagine" Wall Hanging
Here are some close ups:
Here is my video on how to create this wall hanging and using the gelatos:
