Just Beachy

Jen Matott here to share a project that I made using Punky Sprouts cardboard and canvas products and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents and Gelatos.

My beach babies were the perfect subjects for this page.  I used a pink and orange color palette to create contrast with the blues in the photos. 

Beach_JenMatott2First, I peeled the top layer of both the scalloped 12"x12" cardboard and the banner piece.  I applied Tangerine and Bubble Gum Gelatos to the banner piece and used Gesso and Gel Medium mixed and applied it through a stencil.
Beach_JenMatott3I used Black Licorice Gelato with a foam applicator on the canvas banner pieces. And colored the Kraft circles with Tangerine and Bubble Gum.

I used the same stencil with Black Licorice Gelato mist  and Gelato drips to create drama on a watercolor page from a Punky Sprouts album. 

Materials:

Textural Accents Gesso and Gel Medium

Loving all the texture you included in this fabulous project! Great idea to do the "opposite" - coloring and then stencil with Gesso & Gel medium mix = WOW! Thanks for the inspiration :)
