August 4 Ustream Recap

Wow we had a fantastic time last Monday night. Lots of Yummy techniques using our Gelatos®, Whipped Spackle, Gesso, Gel Medium, and Glaze from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®, Bo Bunny Sentiments, Heidi Swapp Stencil, and Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper. 

As always thank you to the Scrapbooking with M.E. Boutique for managing the sales of the kits, and to their amazing Design Team for promoting and following up with future posts using these products!

In the show we created 4 very different card designs!

On this card, I showed you how to avoid "mud" and create colorful backgrounds.  We mixed the Margarita and Watermelon Gelatos® to create this lovely orange that we mixed with the Whipped Spackle for texture and depth. I also demoed how to resist with Gesso. 

I showed how the Gelatos® look on a black cardstock.  I love that they look just like chalk!  So pretty. This card could easily be a masculine card by changing out the feminine colors. 

On this card, we did a resist with embossing powder.  I also showed you how to combine stamps in the set to create a word cloud effect, and interesting background! 

And finally we used the Gelatos® as a watercolor medium. Sometimes "Mud" is what you really want. Like when I created the tree branch above.   So I showed you how to use the Margarita Mix, Snow Cone, and Raspberry Gelatos® to create a pastel brown. 

Congrats to our winner - Jeanie Ellis on being our winner of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Mixed Media Kit!

Here is a link to the Playlist with all three parts of the video tutorial.
