Nobody practices art like a little kid. Todays post and video were inspired by a comment from a child and I ran with it. I broke out my never-used Gelatos. These were inherited art supplies and I like 'em. They are really silky smooth and mooshy. Like Portfolios, yes. But even more buttery and smooth. Really a great art material. However, the way they are packaged stinks. I don't need extra brushes or stamps. I just want a basic rainbow of colors.
I ordered a pack meant for kids over here at Amazon that has the rainbow so I'll let you know how the quality is.
Folding vellum produces a beautiful pattern. I'm using a heavier than usual weight vellum from Bazzil (linked below). You can make all sorts of patterns and starbursts, even crumpling.
I hope that this is a simple playful art journal idea for you! You can see where something didn't work out and what I did to make it work. And so the idea - let's make it #practiceart - can be a revolution. Tell your kids.
This video has more chat than usual. I'm not so sure if you really want to hear the ramblings in my brain. Let me know. I tend to want videos that are short and sweet myself. I'm trying to find a good balance.
Quick word on the mists I use. I put some (a good pinch) of PearlEx or Perfect Pearls into a mini mister. You can add water or reinker and water for a great spray. Extend your supplies.
