Resist with Gel Medium - Birthday Fun

Hello Loves! Today I am sharing a fun resist technique using Gel Medium. 
Below are two layouts I did using stenciling, gel medium, modeling paste, and lots of ink and paint! 

Using The Harlequin Stencil from The Crafter's Workshop, I used a palette knife and Gel Medium. Once the Gel Medium dries it acts as a resist. You can see below the diamonds have resisted the paint and ink. 

You can also see here the Distress Ink I used to color the edge of the layout. 

Using a stencil by Dylusions, Checkered Dots, I added dimension with Modeling Paste and Paint. 

The paint splatter was created by "dabbing" the paint dauber down. 

Using an arrow stamp and a heart, I stamped onto my scraps to create a little grouping. I used this throughout all the layouts for my birthday.

Using my Silhouette Cameo I cut out Polaroid Frames for my photos. 

I had a lot of fun creating these layouts. Matte Gel Medium is one of my go to's and I loved that I found a new way to play with it. 

I hope everyone has a lovely Saturday and finds a little time to create.
