But this year, I was challenged by Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft to create a project related to Valentine's Day - and - most importantly - I had a Gelatos technique to test...
So, this is what I created:
First, I glued down some heart cuts (remember, I got a Silhouette Portrait - I'm keeping it busy) and then I stencilled more hearts using moulding paste.
I gessoed the whole thing.
Then I added Gelatos...
... and blended them with my fingers.
Then I took Gel medium and dabbed it on the Gelatos with a piece of foam.
Just tapping the gel on...
(detail - sponged area vs. non-sponged)
To make the shapes stand out more, I added some shading with Dark Sepia PITT Artist pen.
Then, I used acrylic inks for drippage (sorry, I forgot to take pictures of this phase). Finally, I added the quote and embellished the finished piece with tiny hearts.
I used the same technique for these two cards:
... and this doorhanger (though, I might have overdone the drippage part).
So now, I think, I can safely pronounce this technique tested. ;-)
