Stencils are my scrapbooking weakness, I just cannot resist them. So rather than fight it, I look for ways to use my stencils to justify my collection, and I have stumbled on yet another medium in which to use! Gelatos! and the best part this is so easy.
Items needed: Crafting mat, Gelatos, sponge, stencil, and some tape.
Place and tape down your stencil on your paper. Begin by colouring the Gelato directly on the stencil. Pick up the colour from your stencil with your sponge and using a circular motion add the colour to your paper.
Continue until you are satisfied with your result. With this stencil I lightly shaded the yellow with a coral to reach the colour I was looking for.
I also added a second smaller stencil with a likeness to the first stencil design and used a different colour of gelato using the same above procedure. Now I am ready to place my photo, paper and embellishments.
Here is my finished layout, I love the intensity of the colours by using the Gelatos, I will definitely be using this technique more often (I have plenty of stencils to try 🙂 from my collection)
Thanks for looking!
