Mornings With Mom
I tried using gelatos for the first time ever with this layout. I'm not sure if I really liked using them. I first tried coloring them directly on the paper and then getting them wet to smoosh them around, but I didn't like that. So I flipped over the paper and tried smooshing the gelatos on my craft mat and then using a wet brush to watercolor onto the paper. I liked how that looked better. And I painted the wood veneer with the same watercolor/gelatos. I liked how the wood veneer turned out. And I even tried cutting all the papers by hand to give them wonky edges. I don't think that made things any faster for me though. I'm glad I finally tried using gelatos but I need more practice before I decide if I really like them.
