Welcome back to another colorful Gelatos® post! This is Rachel Kleinman and I'm sharing a new-to-me project with my favorite Gelatos® color: GUAVA! Last post I shared that Snowcone Gelatos® was the first color I ever owned; but Guava Gelatos® was my first favorite! The name definitely had something to do with it, I mean, Guava Juice is delicious :)
I started with a plain metal tin that included a little accordion style album inside. You can find these at many arts and crafts stores, or just make your own with an old mint tin. I covered everything with Gesso before adding my Gelatos®, Aquarelle® Pencils, and Whipped Spackle.
Since Guava Gelatos® is naturally a light color, I used my Aquarelle® Pencils to highlight and outline. You can see I've added a lot of orange to my album, and that's because I always find myself using Guava alongside the Mango Gelatos®. They just work together! You'll see in a lot of my pieces that where there's pink... there is orange right along side it!
There are a lot of new techniques I share in my how-to video for new ways to use your Guava Gelatos®. This includes misting, melting, and stenciling!
This little album and tin is also filled to the brim with Mixed Media Stencils! I really love the addition of stencils to the Design Memory Craft line, it just makes designing so easy!
So, go! BE AWESOME and play in your craft space, create something new, and try out new ways to use your Gelatos®! Thanks for joining me and happy creating!
