Under Construction

Today I am sharing a week in review page spread. Over the long holiday weekend, last week, we decided to start a big project - putting in a large patio. Still lots more to go on the patio but here is the page spread and the pictures so far.

I decided to pull out my gelatos, as I have not used them in awhile. I scribbled them onto the page and then went over them with water to blend them together. I got out a Tim Holtz stencil and used the gelatos to add some more interest to the background.

I used the black gelato and lots of background stamps in the area where my photos would go.

I then added in my photos. To make them pop off a bit more I went around the edges with the black gelato. I used some construction stickers I have had fr quite some time to fill in here and there.

I found some letter stickers, but they were not quite the right color of orange. So once again, the gelatos came out.

I used various colors of green gelatos on my weekly planner page. I added in my text before I colored the planner page with the gelatos. Gelatos are a bit waxy and may ruin a pen if you write over them.

I am submitting this to the Craft Stamper Take a Stamp Anything Goes Challenge. As always thanks so much for stopping by!
