Ok! For today’s project, I created a fun background using the Faber Castell Gelatos. I adore these little guys!  You can watch the video right here on the blog OR over on my Youtube Channel in HD by clicking HERE!

TIP: ANYTIME YOU USE GELATOS, I RECOMMEND APPLYING A COATING OF GESSO TO YOUR CARDSTOCK. IT CREATES A SMOOTH AND BLENDABLE SURFACE FOR THE GELATOS!

I love starting with white cardstock, a blank canvas if you will, and just see where the product takes me. My vision was something completely opposite of what resulted. Funny how things work out. After blending the gelatos, I added a few swipes of gesso  using my finger for a more mixed media look. The sentiment is from the Bravo stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays. (if you ever shop at CAS-ual Fridays, make sure to always use discount code LAUREL2016 to save 15% on your purchase).

I made a second card, a more toned down version lol, using the Faber Castell gelatos as well! 🙂
