MIXED MEDIA MEMORY DEX CARDS I HOW TO USING GELATOS
Hello everyone and happiest Friday.
Today I am wanting to share a fun weekend creative type project with you. It is so simple to do, and once you master this technique the creative possibilities will be endless for you.
Today’s post is all about creating beautiful mixed media backgrounds, which we will then create Memory Dex cards from.
Water and a small paint brush
To do this, I created a very basic video tutorial to follow. I will be demonstrating this technique using gelato’s and watercolor paper, however this can also be achieved using other inks and mediums as well.
Watch my video tutorial below to see just how easy this is accomplished!
I love how much freedom there is to this basic technique, but allows for endless ideas, options and flexibility! Gelatos are a brilliant medium for creating backgrounds and I love how they blend so effortlessly creating beautiful patterns. Whether you use it as a base pattern, or take it one step further with making custom embellishments or allowing it to serve as a stamping platform…you will love whatever you choose!
Memory Dex dies are an absolute must have because once you have these dies, you can literally make cards out of anything for your spinner. I love mine so much and use them all the time.
Isn’t it incredible to think that all of these 3 cards were created from the same one piece of paper that I simply scribbled gelatos on to and then blended further with water? It blows my mind every time. I am definitely not a mixed media crafter by nature, but with products like these that make it so simple to emulate one…sign me up! I love it. Having other outlets like this, that is normally not my go to is such a great way to keep the creative energy alive.
I cannot encourage you more to try out this technique. You will love it. It always makes me so happy to add new additions into my Blush Memory Dex Spinner, exclusively found and only at scrapbook.com . Be sure to snag yourself some of these stamp sets too…I linked them in the post and they are by far my most favourite stamps to use right now. I just know you will adore them too.
Happiest creating friends. Till next time 🙂
