Hey there everyone! I've been absent for some great reasons. This was probably the busiest week I will have all year. Last Wednesday my in-laws made it into town for my husband's graduation from Auburn for his Masters Degree, we had ballgames and mud run 5Ks, a wedding, and then my in-laws left. It has been a great, crazy few days.
What I'm showing you today was made for the special couple as a wedding gift. I have really been enjoying Gelatos recently and making home decor items. Playing around with the different products has proven to be very therapeutic :)
I started out by painting and distressing a wooden frame I found at a local craft store. That took no time and dried quickly. The next step was simply coloring a canvas board with the different Gelato colors. You can get so many different looks by just mixing and rubbing.
After I got the Gelatos to look the way I wanted, I used a stencil from Simon Says stamp called Moroccan. It's a great technique that gives an awesome look buy using a baby wipe. The final step for this background was to splatter some white paint using a toothbrush.
The final product is show above. I used some cork, a doily, some Prima roses, Chalk Board Paint form Faber-Castell, and a few other products. The die cut I used comes from Taylored Expressions and is called Label Stacklets 2. The stamp is a wood handled stamp that I thought was perfect for the happy couple.
The above is a close up of what that baby wipe/stencil technique looks like. I love it.
