I really LOVE using "Gelatos" . They are a wonderful, creamy, water soluble pigment stick that blends beautifully with or without water. There are so many other uses too. You can apply some to a palate and add water and put it in a mister, or use it as water color paint. I love scribbling with them and blending them with and without water, They have a big selection of packs of Gelatos at the Altered Pages Store. The packs come with 4 Gelatos, a paint brush and a stamp, Or the Gelatos with a brush and dabber. They are really well priced too! Cheaper than the other shopping sites!
I started by using Mixed Media paper and adding some book paper, patterned paper and burlap to it. I then used the Gelatos and just scribbled them all around the paper.
I blended the Gelatos with a sponge and with water. I then used stamps and wrote my new favorite phrase. A little spray on Gelato mix was added to the top.
Here, I stamped some flowers on patterned paper and painted them with water color I made with my Gelatos.
Next, I used punchinella as a stencil and rubbed white Gelato on a sponge.
And this is my finished piece. I LOVE the colors I was able to get with the Gelatos!! And, I also like to cut the piece apart into 3x5 inch pieces and use them as card backgrounds. It is a very fun thing to do, no matter what you do with them or how you use them. Just have fun!! I did!
