This is Rachel here, and today, I would like to share with you some inspiration all about decorating for the holidays! To begin, I used the Strawberry Gelatos® to create a festive plaque that I can keep on display through New Years.
I started by covering the entire plaque with Strawberry Gelatos® then incorporating a few Mixed Media Stencils in a lot of different ways. I used a ghosting technique to take color away, I used Silver Ice Gelatos® to add color through a stencil, and finally I used Texture Luxe™ Pearl Paste through the triangle stencil to add dimension. Each of these techniques are shared in my process video to give you a better idea of what I did!
As much as I loved creating the background, the letters are really the star! I traced the Stencil 301 letters onto watercolor paper, fussy cut them out, then gave each one a coat of Gold Champagne Gelatos®, Glass Bead Glitter Gel, and Ice Texture Gems™. Each letter has so much sparkle and dimension! I love the combination of the Glass Bead Glitter Gel with the Texture Gems™ on top.
Please watch the process video to get a clearer idea of each step used to create this plaque! Thanks for watching!
I hope you all have a festive start to your holiday season :)
