Hello Crafty Friends,
Welcome back for another Whimsical Wednesday.
Today we have a new challenge and it is awesome because I tried a new technique with some new materials...Gelatos.
When I went to the Scrapbook Expo two weeks ago I was a Teacher's Volunteer in a Mixed Media class. I did not receive any of the materials or get to try the techniques in the class, but I sure did watch, listen, and remember.
Here is my Mixed Media project...
I made these cards for two of my students to thank them for the teacher appreciation gifts they gave to me last week.
I colored the Swirls embossing folder with Gelatos (pink and purple) and added water. Then I ran the paper in the folder thru the Cuttlebug. Using a paint brush and more water, I blended the colors together.
This second card was created differently. I embossed the black paper first then added the Gelatos directly onto the paper. I used my finger and a baby wipe to smudge the colors together.
Pink pleated ribbon, a pink tag, and pink and purple flowers bring out the metallic colors.
