Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos™ Colors to create a water colored effect background. I always see these cute canvases people have made and wonder how they get those great watercolorish backgrounds. So, I thought I would try out these products to make my canvas background.
I started by using the set of Mix and Match Craft Gelatos™ Colors shown above. I put the Guava, Bubble Gum, Lavender and Red Cherry gelatos all over the canvas in a random pattern.
Then, using the provided brush and water, I blended the colors together.
And kept blending.
Ta-da! That was quick and easy and best of all, no mess!
I added some ribbon around it.
Then, using the Cricut Straight from the Nest cartridge, I cut this birdcage and the "fly" word art and applied it to the front. I used glue to adhere the birdcage to the front.
Check out the video below to see exactly how to do this:
Pros: It was super easy and quick to get a nice watercolor type effect.
Colors are vibrant.
Not messy at all.
Cons: Could not get the stamp to work with the Gelatos™ Colors and give a nice image.
Overall, I love the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos™ Colors and will be using these a lot in the future to create gorgeous, muted backgrounds.
