With my latest order from A Cherry On Top filled with gelatos, I am having a blast with them as there are so many different techniques out there.
This latest layout features gelatos mixed with gesso, which I painted on the dark brown pattern paper.
I used the Lemon gelato from Faber-Castell and it really brightens up that dark paper, making the pattern paper strips and photos POP!
I even use a little bit of the gelato and rubbed it into the Studio Calico veneer arrow I used:
This layout is based on a sketch over at Let’s Get Sketchy – Week 3 May:
I changed my layout a bit by rotating the photos, and not putting anything in the upper right hand corner.
This layout was also inspired by ACOT’s 3 in a Row Challenge, where I used the 1st column – something brown, burlap, and painting.
My list of supplies are as follows:
Papers, “fun” chipboard piece: Echo Park
“documented” sticker: MAMBI
veneers: Studio Calico
painted background: Gesso mixed with Faber-Castell Gelato in Lemon
“hello” title, sequins, tabbed folder: from stash
I’m loving the Teresa Collins “Nine & Co” collection more and more. Not only is it great for the new homeowner pics of me and my hubby, but it works great for doggie layouts too! See!!
Miss Penny just chilling in the yard! So this layout took alot of turns. First, I wanted to use the Becky Fleck sketch that ACOT was posting for their weekly sketch challenge.
Then…saw the floral pattern paper I was using, pairing it with the orange cardstock and I decided to submit it to ACOT’s Supply List Challenge. Joannie listed 10 items and I chose orange (cardstock); torn edge (on pattern paper); floral pp; burlap (used as photo mat for 2nd photo); and sequins (scattered on floral paper).
By this time, all I needed was a title. And nothing fit. No pre-made title (tag, die cut, word art). Stamps weren’t going to work. I just couldn’t think. As I looked over ACOT challenges I remembered the Music Challenge! Barb wanted us to use a song that mentioned nature – from grass to flowers to trees to the sky. Something outdoorsy! First song that came to mind was Tim McGraw’s “Where the Green Grass Grows”. Ha! Perfect! So I looked thru my stash of alphas and decided to emphasize “green” in the title with some larger green alphas.
My complete list of items includes:
Pattern paper, sequins, chipboard, folder (opened up and used as a tag), button, die cuts: Teresa Collins
small alphas: Authentique
larger alphas: Webster’s pages
Paw Print sticker: Sticko
