For this piece I started off by sketching out my word art and then erasing it a bit so I could trace over it using a PITT® Artist Pen with a fine nib. I made sure to let the pen work dry completely before erasing any visible pencil marks so I could add wet layers on top of it without it running since once the ink is dry it's waterproof. (Oh, and if you want instructions on how to create a fun pencil like this one, check out the instructions here.)
Then I rubbed some Gelatos® on my craft mat, added a spray of water and then used that to watercolor in my word art. After the watercoloring is dry I gently took a damp cotton swab over the Gel Medium since it resists the Gelatos® leaving the letters white.
Next I wanted to jazz up my clipboard so I took Glass Bead Glitter Gel and mixed it with the Red Cherry Gelato® and then painted it into a heart shape on the clipboard, I added a touch more glitter to it, and then let it dry.
At that point I thought I might be done...but it was just missing something so I broke out a stencil from the 102 Stencil Collection and then mixed some Whipped Spackle and Gelatos® together to use with it.
Done and ready to put up in my studio!
