Hello my Lovelies, I've busy at my desk, this was
an embossed page that came with the kit, I rubbed
different gelato's over the page and blended it with
my fingers.
Stamped one of my favorite stamps I received from my
Magpie cousin Julie Ann, on tissue then podged them
to the page and added some of my new washi tape,
 from  Tonniece, looooove it..
A close up below..
                                This is the new cover I made from the wavy
                                corrugated page, I gessoed over it, made some                                   sprays with the gelato's, blue and green,                                              sprayed them booth all over
                                  I splashed some Sepia Ecoline ink on it with
                                  a fan brush cover the whole page with a net
                                  from and onion bag, used more of my washi
                                  tape on the sides to hold it on the page..
                                  A few close ups...

                           I stamped on some water color paper I had sprayed
                           with the gelatos

                            You get a little bird with the kit, this is the                                         negative, I sprayed it with the blue quite heavily,
                            thought I would pour some of my new crystal rock
                            crazy, it didn't stick, I sprayed it with hair spray.
                            that didn't work great either, so I have now put
                            a few coats of clear nail polish, mounted it on
                            more water color paper, gave him a pearl eye. I                                 edged everything with   Tim' mowed lawn, broken                             twigs, then Inca gold.
                            That's is it for today, I have more, I'll post them
                             tomorrow, I've added another page to the book
                             for the back cover, I only have one page left to
                             finish, I'm taking a break and do some visiting.
                             Thanks for stopping by, I hope you all have a
                              wonderful, creative day...

This is very special with your use of the Gelatos and the wonderful texture and some very lovely washi tape on display.

It's completely delightful, Dianne - and so many ideas and techniques with the gelatos, and the inks, and embossing - love it! And that sparkly bird - even though he caused lots of trouble - was well worth the effort - beautiful focal point!

Oh wow, that washi tape is gorgeous. Tonneice is a treasure, I reckon! I love the sparkly bird too. As Butterfly says he was well worth all the trouble, he looks magnificent. So glad you are using those stamps; they are special favourites of mine! Lovely work, Dianne, you seem to be really getting the best out of those Gelatos and having lots of fun! Really pleased to see you creating and enjoying yourself. Three Magpie Cheers for a beautiful project! Julie Ann xxx
