Hi Everyone Jen Chesnick here with you today to show you how to create a polka dot background with Zots™ and Geltaos. I have a ton of these canvas albums from Maya Road and I am always trying to figure out new ways to decorate the front. I had an AH HA moment last night and Zots™ did just the trick!
To start I used Zots™ in Medium, 3 different color Geltaos, a water pen and my canvas.
I tore of a couple strips of Zots™ and placed them directly on the canvas. I didn’t intentionally line them up, but because of how they are placed on the strips they came out totally lined up! Peel of the backing. Because you are using canvas you might have to hold down one of the edges to get it to stick.
When your done it should look something like this.
Next scribble your gelato all over your canvas kind of like a crayon. There are no mistakes here!
Then using your water pen blend your colors into your canvas. You’ll notice them turning into that pretty water color look.
Before your canvas dries peel off your Zots™. I used tweezers but they come off pretty easily by hand. I wouldn’t suggest letting them sit over night you may end up with a permanent bond.
Let your canvas dry overnight and decorate!
