I just wanted to share my creation for the Memory Nest's Make it Monday. It's a really sweet color challenge for February. I love the minty blue. I actually had the perfect pictures for the be thoughtful and generous phrase, but the colors in the photos where all yellow and green and clashed so badly with this color challenge. I might have to save that phrase for those photos though. Anyways, I found this cute little photo of my daughter and her boyfriend and had to use it.
I decided to give those pesky gelatos another chance. I put some gesso down (this seamed to make a HUGE difference) first and then smudge the gelatos down. Then I spritzed some water on it and let it run together. I really think that gesso stuff is key to getting gelatos to blend and get a much richer color. I'm just glad to finally get the look I've been trying to get with those things!
