Stencil Layering Techniques with Snow Cone

Daydreaming in Snowcone

Daydreamer Done

Hi All. Tiare here with my first August post.  I've been mixing up my Design Memory Crafts products and simply having a ball with color.  This week I've been playing with Gelatos® Color Snowcone, the color of the week and mixing it up with a few fun items. Here's what I did.

Daydreamer 1

First, I created a colorful background using Stamper’s Big Brush Pens: Light Green 171, May Green 170, Permanent Green Olive 167 and Chromium Green Opaque 174 and a little bit of water. I used the Mixed Media Stencil 101 on top, along with Gelatos® Color Snowcone and Kiwi to create a cute pattern.

Next, I sketched in my "Daydreamer."

Next, I made gorgeous shimmering hair by mixing Gelatos® Colors Snowcone with Texture Luxe™ Pearl and spread it using a palette knife. I was sure to NOT smooth it out so that the natural textures remained.

Lastly, I added a bit of color to the lips and eyelids using Gelatos® Colors Snowcone and  Kiwi.  I added details with a Journaling Pitt®Artist Pens Medium Nib. It activated quickly. Next, I created shading with a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft paintbrush, found in the Gelatos Brights 15 Ct . set. I finished by rubbing the Gelatos® Color Snowcone over the hair.  The raised parts picked up the color and added visual interest.
