Use Gelatos® Colors to create your own unique background

Yvonne4

Hello friends. My name is Yvonne and I am a Gelatos® Colors addict. Yes, I can’t help myself. I love the beautiful shimmer and the versatility of the products. You can use them as a dry or wet medium as I did on my layout.

I started by applying Gelatos® Colors directly on the edges of a piece of 12x12 watercolor paper and then using my finger to spread and blend the Gelatos® Colors.

Then I chopped off a small slab of Gelatos® Colors (a little goes a long way) and added a little water to create a paste. After that, I placed the paste along with some water in a spritz bottle to create my Gelatos® Colors mist!

Then I used a Donna Downey mask and misted my Gelatos® Colors on my base.

A little stamping at the edges to “grunge” it up, photos of my cute nephews, some buttons in coordinating colours and title work cut with my Cameo and I’m all done!

Now you see why I can’t get enough of these Gelatos® Colors? This addiction is a good thing right? Are you a Gelatos® Colors addict like me? *winks*

 

Supplies

Gelatos® Colors in metallic blue, rose and teal

12 x 12 Daler Rowney watercolor paper, American Crafts stamp, white pen, buttons, cardstock(for title work)
