Hello my Lovelies, finally here with the end of my
Swatch Gelato Journal, my lovely friend Bibiana
made 3 swatch books of her stenciling technique's, her
blog is on my side bar is you want to have a look,
that's why I'm calling mine a swatch book, showing
all the techniques I used, these are my last pages.
I just have to put it together, I'll post that another day...
Warning this is a long post with lots of pics, sorry..
Stamped on some tissue with those gorgeous swirly flowers with gathered twigs and edged the torn piece, podged it on the page, splotched some Ecoline sepia all over with a fan brush.
I stamped the corner of the stamp with the sentiment on the watercolor paper I had sprayed with the gelatos, cut them out and framing the page with them, edged the whole page with gathered twig and Inca gold, close up below..
The back cover I made out of a piece I cut from cardboard, gessoed over it then rubbed the gelatos and water rubbing it in with my fingers.
stamped the word on tissue, podged it on..
I used the golden's paste with some letters, added it thickly below them trying to make long grasses, that didn't work, when I used the gelato's around the frame, cheap cardboard doesn't work, couldn't get any color with the gelato's, so I painted it with bronze metallic acrylic paint..
This is the bird stencil I had used on the other pages, I colored it just rubbing the gelatos on it with my fingers, I tried some water colored paper behind it, that didn't look good, I saw a large feather on my desk and thought he would look kool with real feathers, I love how he looks now..
That my dear Ladies is then end of all my pages, I want to thank everyone for visiting and all the lovely comments you have been leaving me, they do mean so much, they make my heart sing and my wings flapping..
Hope you all have a wonderful creative week..
