It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Best Friends". There are lots of ways you can interpret this theme. Let's see what how you gonna interpret it.
But first a reminder! The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge DT call closes tomorrow (january 19th) at 9am EST. So if you want the change to join our amazing team, grab it now and maybe you'll be one of our new team mates!
It's been a while since I've worked in my art journal. There were many things, like holidays and birthdays where I had to make cards for, so I didn't had the time to get my art journal out. You have also followed the releases that were announced at CHA? One of the CHA hits from Tim Holtz are the Distress Crayons, which look really cool. I really want to have those! But because these aren't available yet, I grabbed my Gelatos instead and played with those. It's also been a while that I've used them. The coolest effect of Gelatos I find is the dripping.
First I provided the page with a layer of Gesso. I wanted to have some texture for underneath the Gelatos. I added the Embossing Paste with a doily stencil. To smoothly blend the Gelatos I use my fingers after I added the water. By keeping the page vertically it starts to dripp down and you get a very cool effect.
See the video for the whole process from start to finish.
