« Video Tutorial: Chalkboard Entertaining, Part 1 | Main | Gelato Flowers Canvas Tote Bag »

Chalkboard effect with Gelatos@


Hello everyone!

Tatiana is here. It's my final post as Guest Designer for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft. It was great time working with these amazing products and on this great team.

This time I decided to share art journal covers tutorial. I chose black and white theme.

I used two journal boards as covers of my art journal. 

I covered them with three layers of Chalkboard paint.



On the next step I used stamps and white embossing powder.



I added random lines using Coconut Gelato@. Then I shaded Gelato by fingers. Then I shaded Gelato by fingers.





I made back cover in the same way.


On the next step I layered ribbons and lace and covered lace with Black Licorice Gelato. Then I added some water with brush.


On the last step I glued embellishments.IMG_0714
