Mottled leaf technique with enamel gels

Hi everyone, Rebecca here with a great tip to make mottled leaves. I have many Fall photos to scrap, yes even though it's springtime now! I adore the multicolored leaves of Fall and wanted to try and recreate that look with some G&P 3D Enamel Gels.

  • G&P 3D Enamel Bright Yellow
  • G&P 3D Enamel Napthol Red
  • G&P 3D Enamel Orange
  • G&P 3D Enamel Yellow Ochre
  • G&P Maple Leaf Bezel
  • Foil

Begin by applying different colors of 3D Enamel Gels onto foil. Don't mix them, just let them overlap each other. Make the puddle of gels slightly larger than the G&P Leaf Bezel.

Place a G&P Leaf Bezel directly onto the puddle of 3D Enamel Gels. Press down gently, then holding it on the edges, lift it straight up and out of the puddle. Set it aside to dry.

Make several leaves, and allow them to dry completely before using them on any project.

I used them as a leaf banner on a fall layout, but this technique can be used with any other G&P bookboard shapes and any color of 3D Enamel Gels. Experiment with it, and have fun!
