Well I just could not help myself. I found a few extra minutes and made a quick card. :) A bit of a warning about the post....it is going to be a long one. But don't say I did not warn you. I have a lot to share today.
First: I have a brand new class! Yes, me! I rarely have time to teach and lately and I have pulled away from even teaching group classes as it was just becoming too hard to manage everything. Over the past year I have been playing with Gelatos. I must admit at 1st I hated them. And they sat, unused, for a very long time. Which totally bugs me.
So I started to research and play and research some more and play some more. Now they are one of my most favorite products to work with. I hope you join me for this wonderful, one week class. I will show you the good, bad and ugly of working with the product. Plus you will learn my favorite techniques and why I reach for them over and over again.
Gelatos are taking the crafting world by storm! They have been around for awhile, but have recently caught fire. These water-soluble, pigment sticks have tons of versatility. They work beautifully on canvas, watercolor paper, card stock and more.
Join me as we explore this art medium in depth. We will explore both dry and wet options. We will test seven paper types, including:
- Hot Press Watercolor Paper
- Cold Press Watercolor Paper
- Canvas Paper
- Sticky Back Canvas (Ranger Industries)
- Card Stock
- Aged Book Paper
Then we will pull it all together and create two beautiful cards using what we have learned.
Gelatos are a wonderful option for adding color to your projects. they are easy to store and fun to collect. But learning to use them takes some practice. I will share my favorite tips and techniques. The results will amaze you....and hopefully leave you Color Inspired!
Start Date: August 9th
Project #57: Note Card
This week's card features Gelatos......of course! I should also mentioned that I used a new border punch from EK Success and no matter how hard I tried the cuts would not line up properly. That one may be headed back to the store.
Supplies: Stamps (Just Rite Stampers-Kindness and Unknown-Flower), Card Stock, Gelatos, Border Punch (EK Success), Corner Punch (Martha Stewart), Trim, Die (Spellbinders), Ink, Embossing Powder, Pop-Dots and Metal Rim Tag.
One lucky winner will receive a free seat to this class. Just leave a post on this thread telling me about the most unused product in your stash. You have until Midnight on Wednesday, July 31st to enter. I will post the winner on August 1st. Good Luck!
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to post your work below.
