VIDEO: Easy Gelatos Technique For Adding Color And Texture

 

I thought we could all do with some color! So in my Wednesday art video this week I am adding lots of color and texture using a really easy Gelatos technique. I mean, to be honest, you can try this technique with any of your colouring products, but I thought I would go full rainbow with my Gelatos and just share another way that you can use yours to add layers of interest to a piece. We often grab for lots of different products to build interesting layers in our mixed media, art journals and even card making don’t we? Sometimes you just don’t need to and just a few choice products will be fine and you can still build layers of interest.

So have fun trying this easy Gelatos technique out and let me know how you get on! There is a close-up photo of the page at the bottom of this post, so do scroll down to see it!
