PaperArtsy blog Challenge, Topic 15: Gels and Mediums.

Hello friends and welcome here.
Tonight PA Topic 15 Gels and Mediums. you can see the video and sample is here. also Lin Brown's wonderful tutorial and sample is here. It's her lovely technique.
I started to used Golden Clear Tar Gel, and my brand-new Hot Picks 1505.
I dropped the gel in the form of poppy flower and leaves on top of the tile then I put in the Fresco (Bougainvillea and Cherry Red, Hey Pesto and Beach Hut) with Tim Holtz tool. And It was standing overnight.

I stamped Poppy flower and leaves by Stazon Jet Black onto the Tar Gel. Then I glued the book page on the back side thereof and fussy cut it( Jelly Poppy ).
Next I used 10 tag and I made background. I stamped Poppy stamp by Stazon Jet Black onto the 10 tag too. Then I glued the Jelly Poppy onto the background.
Finally I used the pebble and butterfly for embellishments.

 Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!
