All You Need is Love - Mango Gelatos Tag

2017-05-08 18.19.07

Don't you just love this time of year, when all the flowers are in full bloom?! It's very fitting that the Gelatos® Color Mango is bright and happy.  This is Rachel Kleinman here sharing a spring-filled tag.

2017-05-08 17.29.34

I started with a Gesso'd tag, mixed Glaze Medium with Mango Gelatos®, and painted that mixture through a diamond stencil from the Stencil 102 Collection

2017-05-08 17.32.44

2017-05-08 17.33.53

While the Glaze dried I worked on all the pieces of the tag. I colored this cloth ribbon with Passion Fruit Gelatos®, spritzed it with water, and mixed around the ribbon until the pigment bled through the cloth. 

2017-05-08 17.37.51

Then I started painting the paper flowers with Mango and Red Cherry Gelatos® using a wet paintbrush.

2017-05-08 17.43.20

2017-05-08 17.47.43

I wanted to add some 'cool' toned colors so I used Snow Cone Gelatos® with a Stencil 102 stencil. I love how great the Snow Cone looks against the cloth ribbon!

2017-05-08 17.52.34

Finally, it was time to put all the pieces together! I attached the paper flowers and the quote with Gel Medium. I also die cut some flowers from watercolor paper that I had previously used the Color Fizz tablets on.

2017-05-08 18.19.26

Of course I added the final touch of Glass Bead Glitter Gel to the flowers!

Thanks for joining me and enjoy some creative time!

Intro to ICE LAYERS Video + Art Journal

2017-04-04 19.29.35

Design Memory Craft® has released SO many great new products this spring... one of the fun additions to textural accents are Ice Layers! Rachel Kleinman here to share an art journal page that showcases the brand new Ice Layers and the Color of the Week... Comet Iridescent Gelatos®!

2017-04-04 19.29.12

The Ice Layers are a very inventive version of your classic stencil. They are like a clear and adhesive background texture that you can cut apart to get whatever design you desire. 

2017-04-04 19.29.28

Today, I used the Bubbles Ice Layers with Comet, Blue Moon, Nebula, and Satellite Iridescent Gelatos® to create a simple art journal page. I created a dimensional background before applying the Ice Layers. Then when I add the Comet Iridescent Gelatos® it helps everything stand apart!

2017-04-04 19.30.17

Last but not least, I have a quick process video for you. I share some of my Ice Layers projects before they hit the market along with a short tutorial to make the page shown here!

Library Pocket Card and Gift Tag

Library Pocket 1 Watermarked

Hi Loves,Tiare here. A unique card and gift tag are sure gifts that will make the recipient smile.  Here is a fun way to jazz up your next gift giving experience. 

Grab your Gelatos® Iridescents and let's make a library pocket card and gift tag.  Let me show you how to make them. 

Library Pocket 1

First, be sure to Gesso both the library pocket and the tag.  Next, use Stamper’s Big Brush Pens:  Black, Violet, Cobalt Blue, Light Blue to create your backgrounds.  Draw color onto craft sheet, spritz with water and drag the library pocket and tag through the  color.  Do this one color at a time.

 

Library Pocket 2

Next grab your Ice Layers - Bubbles to create cool circle patterns.   Just color in the shapes with your Gelatos® Iridescents and activate with a water brush or rub in with your fingers. To make a fun overlapping pattern,  pick up Ice Layers and  place over previous circles.  I love how the Gelatos® Galaxy stands out, it is such a rich and creamy color. 

 

Library Pocket 3

Use Stamper’s Big Brush Pens:  Black #199 to add color on various circle stamps.  Stamp images on circles. Stamper's Big Brush Pens are perfect for stamping. You can also use the  ink to add detail to the edges of the tag and card.  Write a sentiment onto the library pocket and tag using Journaling Pitt®Artist Pens Medium Nib Black #199

 

Library Pocket 6 Watermarked

Lastly, add a cute dimensional flower to the library pocket and a fun ribbon to the tag. 

Tada!

For the Love of Art - Tag

2017-03-23 18.16.21

Happy spring everyone! This is Rachel sharing a quick mixed media tag featuring the stunning new Iridescent Gelatos®, including the Color of the Week: Supernova.

2017-03-23 16.46.17

First, I started with this tag I had leftover from my last project; it's covered in Whipped Spackle that was mixed with Blue Moon Iridescent Gelatos®. I also had some watercolor paper from when I experimented with the brand new Color Fizz products... aren't the colors beautiful?! 

2017-03-23 16.45.43

I found some rubber heart shaped stamps that I "inked" up with Supernova Gelatos®, misted with water, and stamped onto my Color Fizz watercolor paper.

2017-03-23 16.59.57

Two of the hearts were fussy cut and added to my tag, along with some drywall tape that was also colored with Supernova and Mars Gelatos®. You'll also see an extra-thick coat of Glass Bead Glitter Gel through a mixed media stencil.

2017-03-23 17.20.37

Lastly I added some word stickers and the tag is complete!
