Playing with Gelatos

After receiving my early birthday presents from my sweet boyfriend, I couldn’t wait to play with them! This lucky girl got the Gelatos AND Big Brush gift sets from Faber Castell AND a Ranger Craft Mat!

I tried to film a craft video, but after trying many different setups, I gave up and just started crafting. My goal wasn’t to make something nice, but just to experiment with all the different techniques with the Gelatos and Big Brushes. They are so incredibly wonderful to work with!
They blend so easily and you have a background within to minutes. So much faster and easier than with distress inks and sponge daubers!

This is my experiment so far. I tried a different font, but every time I try to write differently, it’s SO ugly. So I decided to cover it up with some Gesso and an extra layer of gelatos. I’m not happy with the end result, but it’s really time to call it a night. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you tomorrow for the finished layout.



Let me know in the comments what your thoughts are about the Faber Castell products and if you’d like to see me make start-to-finish-craft videos.
Take care and hope to see you tomorrow!
