Scrapbooking with Gelatos Part 3

Here's another layout I created using Faber Castell's Gelatos. This one was definitely inspired by Art Class 2 by Wilna Furstenberg at 2 Peas in a Bucket, but I would say it's more in the spirit of the class and less of a shameless scraplift (like the ones in the two preivous posts). I feel more comfortable playing with gelatos, watercolors and stamps thanks to that class.

Here's the finished page-

I used white cardstock as the base. and just applied some gelatos in a range of bright colors. I then used a little wated to activate the pigment in them and get a better distribution of the colors.

 I used some archival inks in different colors and Faber Castell Big Brush Pens (also permanent ink, so great to use with other mediums that require water, cause it won't smear) for the stamping.

 Then added some watercolors to paint the images.

 Added some embellishment, transparencies from Heidi Swapp's Mixed Company collection, puffy stickers, flowers, fabric bow (Maggie Holmes), stickers from Glitz's Wild and Free collection.

And for more texture- lots and lots of ribbon from the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm ribbon pack beneath the photo.

Thanks for visiting!
