Canvas Corp Blog Hop Day 5- Jen

Hi everyone and welcome to day five of the blog hop with Canvas Corp! To win Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft's $50 prize, comment below each day this week.  One random winner will be selected on April 20th. 

Hi everyone!  Jen here to share with you a project that creates with Canvas Corp bag and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products.   FrontofbagI started with a hexagon stencil from the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mixed Media Stencil 101 Collection and used Gelatos® Colors Brights set to create areas of shape and color.

GelatosonbagColor inside the stencil and then blend with finger.  I rub in a circlular direction to create a mixed effect.

I used the same stencil to dab Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard Paint over to create some black areas.  Once dry, I added Art GRIP® Color Pencil in white over the chalkboard painted shapes as well as PITT® Artist Pen in Black around some of the Gelatos® shapes.

Here's a view of the back of the bag... I just added some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard Paint through the hexagon stencil and drew with the ArtGrip colored pencil in white.

On the front of the bag, I colored with the Gelatos® Colors in Snow Cone from the Brights set.  I tipped the bag up ( I suggest putting a piece of cardboard inside the bag to create a flat, solid surface to paint on) and sprayed water to create drips down the surface.  Some text was stamped using a Stamper’s Big Brush Pen in black over some areas.

Next, I added Texture Luxe™ in Gold to some chipboard shapes from UmWowStudio using a foam dabber in the Gelatos Tool Set.

Using that same hexagon stencil, I added some of the Texture Luxe™ in Gold through using a palette knife.  Allow to dry completely.

Create textured design by applying Whipped Spackle through Fleur De Lis stencil from the Stencils 201 collection.

Canvas Corps Blog Hop Day 3 - Tiffany

TiffCanvasCorpsMain1

Hi everyone and welcome to day one of the Blog Hop with Canvas Corp! To win Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft's $50 prize, comment below each day this week.  One random winner will be selected on April 20th.  

Hey Blogosphere, it's Tiffany for Day 3 of our Blog Hop with Canvas Corp and today I'm showcasing the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® product line with an 8 x 10 Stretched Natural Canvas. I definitely went out of my comfort zone to create on such a large-to-me surface, but I had fun! What matches more perfectly with a Cityscape Canvas than the Manhattan Gelatos®? Nothing, right? Oh, I usually create Video Tutorials, but decided to make a Photo Tutorial for you:

TiffCanvasCorps1

1. Create a Cityscape Mask from cardstock & then dab Gel Medium through the Brick Background Stencil (Stencils 10ct 201 Collection) using a foam brush. Allow to dry.

2. Color background with the Gelatos® Designer Colors - Manhattan

3. Blend with a wet brush & then dab away the excess color with a towel to reveal the Gel Medium resist.

4. Trace Cityscape Mask outline using an Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencil (black).

 

TiffCanvasCorps2

5. Paint Cityscape with Chalk Board Paint medium.

6. Paint windows with Gesso medium. Allow to dry.

 

TiffCanvasCorps3

7. Dab Texture Luxe™ Gold through Key & Fleur Di Lis Stencils (Stencils 10ct 201 Collection) using a foam dauber. Dab a little throughout the canvas to add more texture as well. Allow to dry.

8. Paint "home" with Chalk Board Paint medium onto the key with a fine paintbrush.

9. Splatter Chalk Board Paint medium across finished canvas & add some to the upper-left corner. Spray with a mini-mister (Essentials Tool Set) of water to all drips.  Allow to dry & then add embellishments!

Canvas Corp Blog Hop day 2 with Rita

RitaBarakat.com
Hi everyone and welcome to day two of the blog hop with Canvas Corp! Rita Barakat here and today I am sharing a Canvas Corp 6x6 Canvas Stitched Mini I decorated with a few of my girls. I had so many pictures I made a little video of the finished mini portfolio below (this is the cover)! Here are some tips and techniques I used...

RitaBarakat.com2 RitaBarakat.com4
 You can use Gesso or paint directly on the canvas with Gelatos® Colors! If you are doing a lot of fine detail you might want to use a thin layer of Gesso first - it gives you a smoother surface and a little more time to manipulate the colors.  
RitaBarakat.com3
I draw directly on the canvas, then spread the color with a wet paint brush. If I am covering a large surface, such as the background I grab Gelatos® Double Scoop®  and mist the surface instead of just using a wet paint brush.
RitaBarakat.com6
RitaBarakat.com5 All of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® textures worked on the canvas; with and without stencils. On the left I am using the Texture Luxe™ Gold  with a stencil. On the right I used the Chalkboard Paint for the wings (I love the contrast between the paint and Gelatos®) and the Glass Bead Glitter Gel with the stencil. Have you tried the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products on canvas yet? Here is my finished project...

Canvas Corp Blog Hop Day One - With Lisa

LisaAdametz-ButterflyDots-1

Hi everyone and welcome to day one of the blog hop with Canvas Corp! To win Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft's $50 prize, comment below each day this week.  One random winner will be selected on April 20th.  

It's Lisa with you to start the week of festivities and I hope that you enjoy the project that I made.

Now, I'm not gonna lie and tell you that I started my project and loved it right off the bat. In fact, I had made something else entirely and HATED it! It happens. So I ripped off as much as I could and used the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gesso and applied about 3 coats and started over.  It's a learning process. And not everything goes as planned or what you had in your head. But, don't give up!
