Glass Bead Glitter Gel, Gelatos and a Wall Hanging, Oh My!

FC Hang 2

Funny how time flies when you're having fun!  I cannot believe this is the last post for my time here as a Summer Guest Design Team Member with Faber Castell Design Memory Craft.  I have LOVED sharing my creativity with you and using these wonderful products to make works of heART.  

Well here we go with another one. 

I've gotten into making wall hangings lately. They are just a wonderful way to brighten a craft room, bedroom, office or cubicle and provide a word of encouragement and positivity.  

This time, I decided to break out those,  "oh so, wonderful, dreamy, creamy," Gelatos®, again!  Mmmmmm! Mmmmmmm!  I just cannot help myself.  They are so rich and fabulous!

Well, let's go.  Here are the steps to make your own AMAZING wall hanging. 

FC Hang 10

Grab your supplies.  Gelatos®, Whipped Spackle, Glass Bead Glitter Gel, Gel Medium,  (2)12x12 chipboard.  Wasn't sure of the colors I would use, so I grabbed them all!  LOL!


FC Hang 9

Cut chipboard into 3, 6x12 pieces. 


FC Hang 8

Stack 6x12 chipboard pieces.  Adhere using Gel Medium. 


FC Hang 7

Next, spread on Whipped Spackle and draw on design using Gelatos® Double Scoop Chocolate, Licorice, Mango, Green Tea and Snow Cone and Gelatos® Black Cherry. 


FC Hang 6

Grab a paintbrush, dip in water and spread Gelatos®.  Go from the lightest color to the darkest color.  Be sure to rinse brush before each color use.


FC Hang 5

Use a black acrylic paint marker to add outlines, sentiment and doodled details. 


FC Hang 4

Use a white acrylic paint marker to add more highlights.  Add Gelatos® to create shadowing. 


FC Hang 3

 Add Glass Bead Glitter Gel to add even more dimension and sparkle to the large red poppies.  

FC Hang 1

Lastly, punch holes, add eyelets and use wire, decorated with beads for hanging. 

Tada!  Now hang it up and ENJOY!

Muchas smooches, lovelies.  It's been a blast!
