There is a lot of inspiration out there on the internet - different blogs, instagram and facebook to name a few. So if you ever get a scrap block - get yourself out there! :)
This is an Art Journal page where I was inspired by a blog post over at the Faber-Castell blog - created by Mieko. Faber-Castell makes a lot of yummy color/media products, like the Pitt Artist Big Brush Pen, different fun medium and Gelatos.
On this page I worked with Gelatos. Gelatos is kind of like a creamy crayon, with the consistency as a lip stick. It is colorful, and dissolves easily with water. That is also where it gets permanent.
I colored some wood hexagons, from Studio Calico, with gelatos. Then I painted with a water brush on top to make the color permanent.
When everything was dry, I spread some UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) and Fragments (Shaved
Ice) over the hexagons and heated it with an embossing heat gun. Use a pair of tweezers to hold on to the hexagon with, cause this will get HOT! ... and other tip: Heat it from below... otherwise you will have glitter and UTEE all over the place (pretty sure of that! ;)
Doesn't it turn out pretty cool? :) Kind of like small pieces of candy!
I found this quote on Facebook a while ago. And it is sooo true - For me it means that if I put my heart and soul into whatever I'm going - I will make it! :)
