Good Morning My Artsy Sweetz!!! It is a beautiful morning in
here in the Ozarks! Summer is slowly making its way out of these here hills and
fall is making its debut!!Sitting here
on my porch enjoying some fresh brewed Java feeling the crisp morning breeze
just makes my soul eager to head to the woods for some fall viewing of the
beautiful scenery. However, it is still a little early so going to play in the
Today here on the blog is product review time and Wow I can’t
wait to show you some goodies I have been working with PLUS I am going to do a
giveaway!! WHOOP WHOOP!! Don’t you just love FREEBIES!!!!!So with that let’s check out what I did last
LOL, I bet you thought you were gonna see what I created didn’t
ya!!Well first here’s a glimpse of some products I
If you have not used the new Gelatos you are missing it!! I
am in love mainly because of the different ways you can use them!! Gelatos are
made by Faber Castell (just the name speaks volumes in my book) and are acid-free pigment sticks. They glide on creamy smooth for
vibrant color and coverage. They blend really easily and can be used with
or without water. You can use them just as they are or you can convert them to liquid
for creating color sprays and drips!! They also work on foam, rubber or clear
stamps!!! I have fallen in love with them because of their versatility. Now, let’s
take a look at what I did with them
First, you see the two pink smudge
spots on my mat in the first picture? NO, they‘re not dirt spots!! LOL it's the
Gelatos. I just scribbled with them on my mat. Next I sprayed them with a fine
mist of water to make an ink puddle. I then took my tags and laid them in the
puddle and allowed the tag to soak up the color. I did this a couple of times
on the tag.Here is the result,
by the way I cut the tags out using card stock from Graphic 45’s Secret Garden.
Next I added an image from Altered Pages Collage kit “Elements of Design”. Decorated the tag with some lace and then used
my Gelatos once again. This time I smudged some red on my mat and sprayed with
some water, took a make-up sponge and dabbed the puddled like I would an ink
pad and created pretty hearts using a stencil.
After completing the stencil effect I then allowed everything to dry and topped my hearts off with a little crystal lacquer, ribbon, a little stamp from Graphic 45 and a sweet little key babble!!
Now for the finished product........
Don’t you just love the color of the
Gelatos?They are so easy to use and
their many ways of using them makes it that much more fun!!
