Hope Makes Honey

     After playing at a Faber-Castell workshop at CHA, I have been eager to try out my free gift that I was given for completing the class. I received a box containing 24 colors of Gelatos! 


     To make the background for this tag:
  • Paint Gesso onto Kraft paper.
  • Drag Expresso ink pad in strips down the paper. This gives a wood grain look.
  • Rub blueberry Gelato in upper left and lower right corners. 
  • Use Wet Wipe or damp paper towel to smooth blueberry Gelato.
  • Place flower stencil and use Wet Wipe to remove Gelato from flower.
  • Use Wet Wipe to pull a bit of the blueberry away from the flower.
  • Use burlap stencil and Green Tea Gelato randomly.
  • Use clear Wink of Stella over the petals of the blueberry flower.
     The embelly is one that I made a couple of years ago. The project got crushed. I rescued it from old project and now placed it onto a new project.
