    Beautiful pages and I love them. Awesome, Jill! I have a question…I noticed when you mentioned the Gelatos that it was necessary to use a fixative to seal them. Does that apply when you use them in card making as well, or is it because they were sitting on a less absorbent surface? Just wondering! 🙂

      Thanks so much for your kind words! Sealing the Gelatos does depend on the surface and the way they are applied. If the surface is less absorbent and they are just colored on and blended with my fingertips, I find they really need to be sealed. If the surface is more absorbent and they are also blended with water and then dried, they often do not need to be sealed. Also, if I am planning to add more wet layers on top of a Gelato’d surface then I definitely would seal them. On cards, once I’m done, I usually just rub my fingers on top. If nothing comes off on my fingers then I don’t seal them. In the journal, I think I will try and seal them always since the pages will be closed and pressed against each other and I usually add multiple layers in the journal as well. Hope that all makes sense. Haha! Hugs and happy stamping!

        Thanks so much! It does answer my question. A friend gave me a Gelato kit as a birthday present sometime ago and I need to use it and show her what I made. 🙂 I haven’t been too comfortable with using it before, but your videos do help!

    This is a fantastic video! A friend and I have been working in art journals for a year with acrylics. Great to know we can now add watercolors!!! Your pages are so lovely.
