Hi Beauties. Tiare here. Today, I am playing in my mixed media journal. I love putting together art journals. I have tons of them for all kinds of reasons. This one is filled with Design Memory Craft goodness. Lots of playing with techniques here. I decided I wanted to play with Gelatos® and try out a fun floral technique. Cute, right? You should try it too. Here's how.
First cover your background with Gesso. Choose a fun background stamp, spritz with a little bit of water, color with various Stamper’s Big Brush Pens. I used May Green 170 and Cobalt Turquoise 153. Stamp your image.
Color over using Gelatos® Colors Snowcone and Kiwi spread with finger or paint brush. Be sure to spritz with a little bit of water or dip your paint brush in water first. I really love how the Gelatos® and Big Brush Pens work together so well.
Outline flowers, petals and stems using Stamper's Big Brush Black 188.
Use Stamper's Big Brush Pen Black 188 to doodle in flourishes and to ink the edge of your page.
