Hi everyone! Carisa here. Today I'm back to share with you a pretty mixed media canvas using primarily Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® Colors. I was inspired by the pretty papers I had just received as well as the rub on from the collection. I wanted to see how it would work over a background made with Gelatos® Colors. I pulled out Butter Cream Gelatos®, Kiwi Gelatos®, Aqua Dolce Gelatos®, Earl Grey Gelatos® from the Pastels Set and Iced Currant Gelatos® from the Metallics Set.
I started out by covering my entire canvas with Gesso and adhering pattern paper with Gel Medium. Then I added Gelatos® Colors using one of my favorite methods by scribbling a lot of color on and spritzing with water then letting it drip down the canvas.
After drying that with a heat tool, I applied Gelatos® Colors through a stencil from the 101 Collection using a baby wipe. I then added the rub on and coated it with a thin layer of Gel Medium to protect it for coloring later. I also added some Texture Luxe through a stencil to add more texture and tie in the gold from the rub on.
Finally, I colored in the flower using Stamper’s Big Brush Pens and added some Glass Bead Glitter Gel on top. To see the entire process, I have a video for you:
