Dia de los Muertos Inspired page with Jen Matott

JenM1114GoodTimes

As much as I love dressing up for Halloween, I love dressing up to educate my students in my art classes!  I went as a Day of the Dead Mexican Sugar Skull last Halloween.  I painted my face and created a headband of blossoms to celebrate not only our Halloween holiday but also the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos.  I love the meaning behind their celebration... to honor those that have passed before us.  To remember and celebrate our loved one's lives.  A couple days of dancing, eating, singing, parades, and family sounds like a great way to remember our heritage.  While I am not Mexican, I can appreciate a holiday that celebrates the life of others even while they have died.  Keeping their memory and accomplishments alive is part of the remembering!

Water Coloring using Gelatos® with Mindy.

Mindy
 
Hi there everyone. It's GDT Mindy here.

I'm so very excited about being a guest designer for Faber-Castell.

Today I have a little water coloring project I made using Gelatos®. First, I'd like to say how in love I am with these little amazing sticks of color! You can seriously do anything with them.

I started off by stamping my image and then taking Acqua Dolce, Lavendar and Earl Grey Gelatos®. and mixed the colors up a little for my background.

Take the Challenge with Mou, November 2014

Hi everyone, Mou here and welcome to the eleventh Take The Challenge of 2014!

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.

November is here. I have Thanksgiving on my mind. Every year, I make a list of the things I'm thankful for about each person in my family. While we don't do elaborate Thanksgiving meals, we enjoy the week off together. I like to give everyone my list in the form of some small handmade gift. This month, your challenge is to do the same. Create any small gift for a person you are thankful for.

Here's my take: 

FCNovember2014_TakeTheChallenge_MouS 

Here's a list of supplies I used:

Here are the steps:

FCNovember2014_TakeTheChallenge_Step1_MouS

 Apply a coat of gesso to the pillow box diecut.

FCNovember2014_TakeTheChallenge_Step2_MouS 

Rub Mango, Green Tea, pistachio and Metallic Mint Gelatos colors to the pillow box. Blend with wet brush.

FCNovember2014_TakeTheChallenge_Step3_MouS

On a label diecut, stamp sentiment using Black Stamper's Big Brush pen.

FCNovember2014_TakeTheChallenge_Step4_MouS

Draw a border to the diecut label with Scarlet Red Stamper's big Brush to make look like label stickers.

  FCNovember2014_TakeTheChallenge_Step5_MouS

Make a list of the reasons you are thankful for some. Fold and place that note inside the box and shut the box closed with adhesive.

Cut off a small bit of Blueberry Gelato color with palette knife from the Gelatos Mist Maker set and crush it down. Put the Gelato in the Drip Dropper filled halfway with water. Shake to mix. Drip on pillow box as shown.

Color embossed diecut leaf with Mango, Red Cherry, and Iced Coffee Gelatos colors.

FCNovember2014_TakeTheChallenge_Step7_MouS
