WEDNESDAY WITH ASHLEY HORTON…

When I saw that our September 2014 Color Add-On Kit included three Double Scoop Gelatos, I knew I had to give them a try. I had never used Gelatos before, so I was excited to see what I could do with them.  I went with a fairly easy technique, and drew several circles on my background paper using the Coral colored Gelato. Then I spritzed over my paper with water and used my finger to blend the color. I added the Teal Gelato to the center of the circle and repeated the same process. After my page was dry, I used a fine point Black pen to draw some messy circles around the Gelato color. I really had fun adding some color to my background and I’m looking forward to using the Gelatos on more projects!

My next project is this quick card that I created using only 5 products from our September 2014 Hip Kit & Add-On Kits. I LOVE the chipboard pieces from the Teresa Collins – Nine & Co. collection!  As soon as I saw it – I knew that I wanted to use one of the large flowers, along with the sentiment, “Love Life” on my card.  For my card base, I used some of the Geyser cardstock from our Cardstock Add-On Kit.  I wanted to continue the floral theme, so I layered a piece of the Nine & Co. leaf paper over my card base, and added one of the Notes & Things Tags on top of it.  Then I finished it off with the chipboard flower and a few of the My Mind’s Eye Enamel Dots. Thanks for stopping by today.  I will be back next Wednesday to share another collection of projects created with our awesome September 2014 Hip Kits.  Have a great week!  xo – Ashley –.
