Good Times- Scrapbooking Tutorial by Irit Landgraf

Irit

Hi! Irit here with a new project, using my favorite media, Gelatos®, in my favorite colors. Let's get started!

I started my layout with gesso. I used it on most of my layout, but left some areas I knew will not be painted bare. As my base layered I added some color with Gelatos® Double Scoop® in Guava and Metallic Melon, using a wet baby wipe for blending.

2015-04-11 15

For my second layer I went with some bright colors, Bubble Gum, Lemon and a more muted Peach. I used wet wipes, my fingers and some water for blending.

2015-04-11b 15

This technique is one of my favorites, removing color with a baby wipe through a stencil. Just remember that you must prime your paper with gesso to be able to do this.

2015-04-11l 15

I love making my own embellishments, and decided to experiment with some Whipped Spackle. I applied a thin layer of it, and then stamped right onto it. I sprayed my stamp with some water before, just to make sure it doesn't pick up too much of the Whipped Spackle. I also applied some through the same floral stencil.

2015-04-11 16

Don't forget to clean your stamp before you try this! I obviously did... I then applied some gelatos in the same colors as my background and used some water to blend them. After everything was dry, I added a thick later of Glass Bead Glitter Gel. I love the finished look, but you do lose some of the details in the image this way, so make sure it's something big and simple without a lot of tiny details. I added some more Whipped Spackle through a stencil behind my photo, as well as some fabric flowers I colored with Gelatos. Here's the finished project with some close ups-
