Hi everyone! Donna here for another layout with the October kit: Funfetti

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I used a simple but fun technique that I’ve always been wanting to try but haven’t until now.

Here’s how I created the background using a few gelatos and watercolor. I brushed the white cardstock with gel medium first. Then proceeded with a pink gelato.

I wanted a more vibrant pink so I added watercolor. I kind of spread it with a small plastic. I have to practice more to achieve subtle results lol I should have tried on a scratch paper first but I am impatient so… it’s quite chaotic lol!

I added more color after but this time I just splattered them instead of using the plastic technique.
