The Documented Life Project - Week 18
Here is how I started my week eighteen Documented Life Project page:
I picked up a sample of set of four Gelatos recently, after giving in to a long term case of craft supply envy. I applied them to a gesso'd vintage dictionary page, and blended with a baby wipe. Next I added a stenciled layer of gloss gel medium.
I finished off my background with a wash of watered down white acrylic paint to bring out some of the details in the stenciled layer. I added a tip in with my quote. (Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that the challenge for this week was to add a meaningful quote.) I edged a piece vellum with Gelatos that I blended with my finger. (I love this so much that I had to buy a bigger set of Gelatos!) and layered it over a vintage book page and a piece of vintage scrapbook paper. I added the quote with my trusty Sharpie pen.
I have a feeling you'll be seeing lots more Gelatos on my upcoming journal pages. They are incredibly versatile and fun to work with.
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
