So what are Gelatos you ask? They look like a tube of chapstick and they go on the page creamy, like a cross between a crayon and paint. They are super easy to use and not messy at all. You can blend it with a sponge or brush to give a painted effect. Blend the Gelatos with water to achieve a water color effect. They are acid free and perfect to use on paper, canvas, wood, and fabric. It is perefct to use in Bible Journaling because you can still see the words underneath the color.
I used pink and purple Gelatos as a base for a recent page I created using printables from Pitter & Glinks First Love devotional.
Simply rub the stick across the page, covering as much space as you desire. I used a paper towel to blend the colors together so the change from pink to purple was seamless.
Have you used Gelatos before? What is your favorite medium to use in Bible Journaling?
