I made these bookmarks to give out to friends from a group I'm in called Faith Art Happy Mail. I sure hope these brighten someone's day as much as making them brightened mine!
I'm also sharing these over at PaperCrafter's Corner for the Take A Chance Day Challenge!
Gesso over my bare cardstock and let it dry completely before coloring with Gelatos or any coloring medium. This is a must unless you are working with watercolor or Gesso-prepped specialty paper. ;)
The above stamp is from Unity Stamp Co. and it's several years old. I found it and thought it went perfectly with the rainbow of color. Here are just a few of my favorite colors. The metallic ones have a shimmer that I love and I use them often because of that shimmer. They all create such a creamy, rich and beautiful color. I never tire of coloring with my Gelatos!
Here's a sample of the dry-blend technique before blended...more control, less mess...
And sample of the water-blend technique...more messy and yes, more fun...
Art is such a wonderful and exciting journey. I love finding out where it's going to take me!
Here's a couple more bookmarks I made with different looks. One was dry embossed, then colored with Gelatos, then water-blended with my finger, then dried half with a heat tool and half air dry. I also made a few fun accessories with scraps! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Wishing you a creative and blessed weekend!
