Hi everyone, Mou here with a mixed media collage today using Gelatos® colors PASTELS! If you saw my previous mixed media collage, you'll notice that I am still inspired by the Pastel colors and shimmer of the Glass Bead Glitter Gel. This project is a 2nd in what might become a mini series of collages.

Before I walk you through the steps, let me give you a list of supplies:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents & tools: Glass Bead Glitter Gel, Gesso, Gel Medium, Gelatos Tool Set 
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® colors: PASTELS (Aqua Dolce, Buttercream,Guava, Kiwi) and Metallic Blueberry
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Pen COLD GREY III
Others: cardstock, old book paper, ephemera, tag, sewing machine, thread, paint brush, palette, stamp

Rub some Metallic Blueberry Gelatos color on a palette and mix it with water. Dip your paint brush in it and write 'Let it Snow' on cardstock. Cut out with scissors. Attach to collage with gel medium to finish.
You can leave it at this step or mount it on a canvas if you like.

Have fun with a collage!
