This month the kit is called:
So I took my camera and went out to look for some
graffiti in my town and made this page:
Now you may wonder how I did this background,
for this is not paper from the kit. Get out your gelatos!
Start with painting your paper with gesso
and let it dry.
Color with 3 different shades of blue
on the border of your paper. Use your finger
(or a sponge) to rub the color really well on the paper.
Spray with water and let the color run down.
When dry you can stamp on it.
As Valentine is around the corner, I also used this
technique to make a Valentine card.
Now that you have your gelatos out, I also
have another technique for you.
For this you need:
The cards you painted with gesso, stencil and baby wipes.
As graffiti is mostly done on a wall, I used a wall stencil
(this one is not Club Scrap and I forgot by which firm, but
there are many around. Mine is 6"x6").
I chosse a few "wall" colors and added them
on the card.
With my finger I rubbed the gelatos on the card.
Now the card is covered with the wall stencil
and take a baby wipe to rub away some of the gelatos.
When you take the stencilof the card it looks like
a brick wall and this is the background of your card.
Take the stencil from the kit and rub
the color of your choice on the word of your choice.
As Iam into Valentine cards, I chose to
write love on the wall.
Here is the finished card
and below are some more samples:
For this one I just used red and orange gelatos
and besides the Graffiti stencil, also
the Fizz stencil for the hearts and the sentiment.
Gelatos are so much fun to use and hopefully
you give it a try too.
