Lovely soft pastels this week at CSI and the Evidence prompted me to try my hand with some gelatos.
Having watched a few demos on line, I thought I'd be brave and experiment. My first three attempts were apalling and ended up in the bin. I finally settled for this one. There's room for improvement, but I did enjoy getting messy and using some watercolour paper.
Our DGD, there is nothing caged about this little girl.
The birds on the twig are fussy cut from a Prima paper
The bird cage is from Dusty Attic
Little orange hearts by Scrapmatts
The yellow flower is coloured with gelatos on vellum
Thank you to Eila Sandberg for the little pink butterfly
