Scrapbooking, Guestbook

Guestbook4

I always look forward to when Scrapfriends comes out with a new sketch.  I just love the splatters!  Anyways, I knew I just had to use this sketch for some guestbook cards from when I got married a few years back.  I had just found them again and I've been trying to find fun ways to get them into my wedding scrapbook.  It has been such a blast reading them!
I tried using gelatos on this layout, but I mostly made a mess and warped my paper a bit.  I know lots of people are loving them, but I'm really not much of a fan.  I'll give them a few more tries.  Maybe I'll find a way to use them that I like.

I've had the wooden envelopes for a long time just waiting for a good layout for them.  I'm so glad to finally use them!

  1. great idea to scrap those guestbook cards! and I feel you with the gelatos - I´ve tried them with water and my first try..well, lets just say, it was not what I expected. then I found that rubbing them without water onto the paper by just using my fingers was the way to go for me. I´m sure you will find a way to get along with Gelatos too :). thanks for joining us at ScrapFriends this month!!

  3. Great idea & wonderful bright colours...I love my Gelatos - but I think the secret is to spray water with an empty fne mist - like an empty Tattered angels mist spray for example - not so much to warp your paper & then scribble the Gelatos on in a small space, gradually adding water & color as you go.... I hope you do 'get them'...as they are FUN to work with:):) Also, they are great over gesso....which 'resists' the water a bit, so this makes for great 'pooling'...but it's not quite as bright of course...sorry for the long post! Anyways, thanks for playing along with us at SF:):)
