Heart Orange Holiday Blitz 2018 Tutorial #1 Chat Thread

Today's tutorial: Gel Impressionism Foiled Collage
Author: Lydia Fiedler (Understandblue)
Gallery: Technique Spotlight >> Holiday Blitz Gallery >> Gel Impressionism Foiled Collage
Keyword: 2018BLITZ1
Date: Nov. 7, 2018

In a new take on the Serendipity technique, this foiled collage is perfect for die cutting into ornament shapes or just smaller geometric shapes for colorful holiday cards. The hardest part is ripping up your monoprint! If you don't have a Gel Press, use patterned paper, a watercolor wash, ink blending or anything colorful!


Here's my video on the technique:

Smile 2018BLITZ1 Chameleon in the grassland

this was a fun technique! I used treat size candy bar foil wrappers for my foliage- it's vintage black and white geometric paper I colored with markers before I ripped it into little pieces. Here's 2018BLITZ1 Chameleon in the grassland

Default Holiday Hearts

Thanks for the fun tutorial. I had to improvise, since I didn't have some of the supplies. My first Holiday Blitz Card: 2018BLITZ1 Holiday Hearts
