Odd Size Layout


Hello there crafters! Sharm here today to share with you a layout I put together using Gelatos® . This time, I've opted for bright, vibrant shades as opposed to my usual choice of subtle hues. I've also used the  Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK for some doodling around the layout.

Here's what I came up with


1) Using a leftover negative from my Silhouette cutout, I transformed it into a stencil



2) I then used 3 different shades of Gelatos® to create an ombre like effect






3) Once I had achieved the desired look, using a spritzer, I spritzed some water over and further blended using my fingertips and a wet wipe to give some colour all over my white cardstock


4) I then added some doodling using the Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK in size M at random areas.

Here's what my layout looks like finally:


Materials Used:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Products: Gelatos® & Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK

Stencil: Silhouette Cutout negativ

Flowers: Prima
