Supplies used in the Gelato Mixed Media Masterboard Tutorial

To begin this Gelato Mixed Media Masterboard Tutorial, select a few book pages. I used dictionary pages from two different books. Adhere torn book pages to an 11 x 8.5 sheet of paper. Allow the glue to dry.

Paint the entire page with Clear Gesso to prep the page to accept the Gelatos. Allow the gesso to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Scribble one color of Gelatos in random areas on the masterboard. Using a paint brush dipped in water move the Gelatos. Dry with Heat Tool. Scribble another color in the same fashion and dry, repeat until the whole page is covered in color.

Stamp the masterboard with various stamps using Archival Ink, Jet Black. Choose stamps that the direction won’t mater as we will be cutting up this piece later.

Once the masterboard has been completed and if you are using B Line Designs Stamps, scan the page and print on cardstock. If you are using other companies stamps, check with their angel policy before you scan or copy the artwork.  Spray printed masterboard with Dazzling Diamonds Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to add shimmer to the page.

Adhere the masterboard to cardstock, if it wasn’t copied and printed onto cardstock and cut into the following pieces to get 7 different elements to use in junk journals.

Create Rainbow Seam Binding using Snug Hug and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Cut about 30 inches if you want long ties for tags. Arrange the seam binding in a spray box or on a surface that is okay to get Mists all over.

Start with by spraying one color somewhat in the center of the seam binding. Then pick another color and spray one side. Select another color and spray the other side. Let the colors bleed into each other.  Add more Glimmer Mists where the seam binding is still white as needed. Dry the seam binding with a heat tool or allow to dry naturally.

Cut seam binding and attach to tags.
