I wanted to share this journal page that I made after seeing a beautiful photo on Pinterest.
I would love to show you that photo, but I am unable to load it here.
I created this page mainly with Gelatos!
First I prepared my paper by painting the entire surface with Gesso
Then I started coloring with the Gelatos.
They color like crayons and come in lots of different colors.
Look what happens when it is blended all together with a brush and water!
This is what I love about Gelatos! They are so smooth and easy to work with.
Lots cleaner than paints and stains! Hey, but I love those, too!
Next I need to start adding texture with stencils, stamps and more Gelatos!
Now I have cut out shapes of pumpkins and gourds with Tim Holtz tissue paper. I glued them down with Modge Podge. I colored around the shapes with a gray Gelato and smeared it with my finger to shade the different shapes. Easy! Peasy!
Added more colors and shading with the Gelatos.
After I was satisfied with the coloring, I wanted to add more details and texture.
I did this with paint splatters and stamping. I cut out leaves in some white card stock with my new Serendipity stamps. LOVE these!!! And then colored the leaves with Distress Inks.
The sentiment was stamped on a wooden label form Studio Calico.
More leaves, twine and button.
And the finished product:
I am gonna frame this and use for part of my Thanksgiving decorations.
I hope you like my page and have maybe learned a little something about Gelatos!
Thanks for stopping by!
