Playing with Gelatos | Scraptures GDT

Good Morning Readers!

It's my final post for Scraptures today. Thank you so much Christa for inviting me to play with your kit this month !!

I have a canvas to share with you today! It was created using only Gelatos

At first I gathered my scraptures Kit - a canvas, some water, modge podge. I layed out all my supplies and wasn't really sure what i was going to do. At first I was going to do some sort of a mixed media canvas with flowered " built in " to my canvas. But that sadly didn't work out well !! 

I started coloring my canvas with the gelatos - then i submerged my paint brush in water and started spreading my paint arround. just playing and spreading it.

This was actually the fun part for me. I loved spreading paint around and it was so easy with these awesome gelatos!

Once i finished painting i added flowers with mod podge. I really didn't like this and was not comfortable painting them with gelatos. So, i started to slowly peel them off and all of a sudden the top layer of my canvas came apart! Yup, i had peeled the first layered and the flowers left a small print on the canvas. So i decided to paint those prints!

Thanks for reading today!
If you have a few gelatos in your stash why not give them a try!
The supplies used in this project were supplied by Scraptures.

Hello Summer | Scraptures GDT

Hello Friends,

I have another reveal with the July Scraptures Kit today! Creating with some GELATOS as ink plats, Bo Bunny Stamps and Simple Stories - i Heart Summer Collection. 

not having diecuts and stickers is making this a bit of a challenge for me, but i 'm enjoying it! It's making me think outside the box and how to use the supplies given to me.

I'll have another project to showcase at the end of July and hope you're enjoying your summer!

Hubby and i went on a little hiking trip yesterday and visited a little Fishing Village called ALMA. It's about an hour and 30 min from our home and we had a great time. Love those Nature Hikes!

Thanks for reading today!
If you want to see more pics of our hike and what i'm up to please come visit me on my instagram feed  http://instagram.com/kristined

Guest Designer | Scraptures

Good Morning Friends!

I am happy to announce that I was asked to be a Guest Designer for a Canadian Scrapbook Store called Scraptures - Thanks to Christa of course for sending out the invitation and allowing me to create with some GELATOS and Simple Stories - i Heart Summer Collection. 

Also included in my kit were -- GELATOS!

I must admit, at first I was a bit scared of Gelatos.. only used them once on a mixed media canvas and that was it. I searched You Tube and found quite a few videos on how to use them and different methods of using them. 

I selected the _ add water _ option! I also did a few dots and rubbed in the color, it turned out ok - something i'll try again in the near future!

Also as an added extra - some BO BUNNY Background stamps .. Love these!
I used the coffee stain/ink stamp on my current layout. It was kind of fun just experimenting with the new products and allowing myself to Create! I will for SURE use them stamps again - for my Mixed Media Canvas' and also my pages .

You can view the Scraptures Online Store by Clicking HERE!

This is the layout I created and I'll be sharing a few more projects on Tuesdays in July!

Thanks for visiting today and HAPPY JULY!
