It's been a long winter and by that I mean it's been snowing since October and it's now April and the white stuff is still around... Here's what my car looked like the other day, sadly.
I don't know about anyone else in Canada but I am ready for some SPRING!!! So regardless of it still being Winter here. I am happy to welcome you to my blog for the SkrapnChat spring blog hop. Bringing a little spring to the world even if it's only the virtual world.
So it's been a month since I ventured into my scrap space so I was really itching to be creative. Instead of doing a traditional layout though I decided I would do some art journaling. I was inspired by a couple pieces of chipboard I had on my table and knew that I wanted to bust out my gelatos and get messy! What's spring without a little mess- mud on the ground etc.
I first primed my background with gesso and then began to play with gelatos and my water pen. This is the background.
Then I used my gelatos to color my chipboard. I scribbled the gelatos right on the chipboard and then blended with my finger. I took a picture of the pre-blended gelato.
And here is the finished result. The journaling on the page reads I am so ready for you to show up! It's been a long winter and we're ready for some fun and warmth" - April "14 I love how the gelatos turned out on the chipboard they blended so nicely!
Hope you enjoyed my project and thanks for stopping by. You are now off to April's blog! Here Enjoy!
Here is the master list of participants just incase you ended up here from somewhere else and want to start at the top!
