Ombre Stenciling with Gelatos®

Altered wooden birdhouse with Gelatos® colors


Hello to everyone, Giovanna here, for the first time as a Guest Design Team member, and I am
pretty excited!
I made this very project for the DT call, so it is a lucky one for me. There's a little funny story
behind it...

This wooden bird house was a kit for kids, with a paintbrush and acrylic paints attached,
bought for my little cousin. As long as she painted it thoroughly, with flowers and primary
colours, and left rejected in the garden, I sort of stolen it and made a little redo. I am pretty happy with the result, I love the little bird peeking from the hole and the steampunk feeling. I used Gelatos® colors in several different ways, these are so versatile, and perfect for every MixedMedia project.

This is how I made the birdhouse, step by step:





Here some details:



Products I used:

-Gelatos® Colors Steampunk , Red, Blue, Yellow, Green set 
-Glass Bead Glitter
-Gel Medium
-Stencils 10ct 101 Collection





Giovanna Zara: I’m a crafter and designer from Sardinia, Italy. I started as a scrapbooker 8 years ago, and then I fell in love with MixedMedia: painting, mixing colours, materials and styles. I love to make Altered Art, Stamping, Art Journaling and I like to use recycled materials in my projects.
