I am in LOVE

For a long time I have been seeing projects and videos using these things called Gelatos by Faber-Castell. I loved what I was seeing but I couldn't find them at any of my local stores. This past week when I went craft shopping I found something amazing. GELATOS at Joann's!! They had all the color packs....and a coupon. I am now the owner of three color packs and the black/white pack. 
I couldn't wait to use them so here is my first project. 
I bought a pack of little canvases from Michael's a while ago and finally broke them out. I primed the canvas with gesso then spread the light pink gelato with my fingers in the middle and used a wet brush with the red gelato. (They're so much fun). Next I stamped the script and music notes (7Gypsies/Hampton Art) and toned it down with more pink. On the chipboard letters I tapped on the gesso to give them texture then smeared them with the red gelato. I added some Maya road embellishments and a Ben Franklin quote around the sides.
I'm entering this in the Design Memory Craft thankful challenge. Love is definitely something I'm thankful for :)
