Lots to do with all this snow! I just got off the phone with my Uncle to tell him that I wouldn't be up to see him again today because of the snow! But with snow I do get to "play"!
I had the pleasure to have a couple of my friends over Friday. It was a great day! And it was great to see my dogs tired out!
So I have been playing a lot with my gelatos! I'm really liking making the backgrounds now! I usually apply the light yellow first along the edge of the paper , continue applying darker colors in the same group of colors; blending between each application; I use a piece of foam or sometimes just a pomp pomp to blend; circular motion on and off my craft sheet just like when we use inks. Gelatos are fast not as messy and a little more forgiving to me! I'm really bad for not testing things before I put it to the paper! Very bad! So for me, gelatos work! We (my friend and I) coloring with gelatos, She using her blender marker and a little reinker spray! She achieves that soft shading effect and we are in total control of the out come. Quicker than colored pencils; softer than markers; no paper piling! http://paperpassiondogaddiction.blogspot.ca/2015/02/gelatoes-and-paper-artist.html
But I couldn't make them do a background like the gelatos.
I have lots of different products and inks; I like them all! They all have a purpose and some might work better with a different product or application than others. All are tools to inspire! As with training our canine friends; all the experiences and devises give us a tool in our "bag". The out come may work or may not! But as long as I'm having fun trying! :)
thought I would post anyway! :) the flowers need yellow centres!
The left ones I like the shadows! The right one not happy with at all!
Now I need a lesson on making things straight! I need another gadget! :)
thanks for looking have a great day!
