I enjoy the versatility of Design Memory Craft Gelatos®. Their vibrant color glides smoothly onto many surfaces like paper, canvas, and wood. Today I'm going to use them on a paper mache heart that I picked up at my local craft store.

I started by giving my heart a coating of Gesso to lightly texture the surface and get it ready to accept the Gelatos®.

After letting the Gesso dry a bit, I used my Gelatos® Brights to basically scribble on color.

Next, I used the brush that came included in the Gelatos® set to brush over the color with water, creating a paint like effect.

I wanted the color to be even more vivid, so once the wet layer dried, I went over it again with more of the Gelatos®, but this time I left it dry and blended it with my fingers.

To add more texture to my heart, I used Ice Layers - Bubbles and a darker Gelatos®.

Using Black Cherry from the Steampunk Gelatos set and the Faith Mixed Media Paper Stencils pack, next I added a feather.

To balance out the feather, I used the "Wander" stencil from Mixed Media Paper Stencils 304.

At this point, I went back in with my Ice Layers and the Black Cherry Gelatos to create a bit more dimension.

I sealed the heart with a coat of gel medium.

Once that was dry, I used my Stampers Big White Pen to do a bit of mark making.

I added a bit more visual interest with a texture stamp from my stash before calling it complete.
