How about a Shamrock shake? And the winners of March Take the Challenge

FCMarch2015_ArtJournal_MouS

Hi everyone, Mou here with today's post! It's an art journal page. We are not Irish, but living here in the U.S., we are touched by many cultures and their celebrations in one way or another. For instance, on St. Patrick's Day, the kids have to wear something green to school and we love having Shamrock shakes from McDonald's... and I think it's great to have these opportunities to learn about other countries and cultures.

 To create this page, I took the following steps:

Attach old book paper to journal page with Gel Medium.

When dry, apply a coat of Gesso.

Sketch a drink cup with straw.

Color the page with Gelatos®colors: Lavender, Red Cherry, Mango, Pistachio, Blueberry, Grape, Coconut, Aqua Dolce, and Black Cherry. Blend with waterbrush.

Journal next to the cup with PITT® artist pen BLACK.

Dot the page with Stamper's Big White pen to finish.

Supplies:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents:  Gesso, Gel Medium,

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®: Blueberry, Grape (BLUE set); Lavender, Red Cherry (RED set); Mango (YELLOW set); Pistachio (GREEN set); Aqua Dolce (50's DINER); Coconut (NEUTRALS set); Black Cherry (STEAMPUNK set) 

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big White pen
 
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Essential PITT Artist pens: BLACK
 
Hope you enjoyed today's post and would journal about the big and little things about how other cultures impact your lives!

And now, the winners of  March 2015 Take the Challenge with Mou...

Red head - mini canvas by Riikka Kovasin

Dmcmar1b
Hello there! It's Riikka here sharing my very first guest post for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®! I couldn't be more excited! I really enjoy doing mixed media pieces and for my first project I decided to do a smaller scale version of one of my lady canvases.

I used Gelatos® to color the picture and drew the features of the character with PITT® Artists Pens and Stamper's Big Brush Pens. Gelatos® work really well in a project like this as they have that lovely creamy texture and they are easy to mix together just by smearing with your finger.  The end result resembles almost like painting. On the other hand the India ink products like the PITT® Artist Pens are awesome as they stuck to the creamy surface Gelatos® create and also are permanent after drying.

 Underneath is a little video showing how I created the piece - starting with creating the background using Gel Medium and finishing with Glass Bead Glitter Gel. I hope you enjoy!

Thank you for stopping by today! Until next time!

Smile Card by Lisa

LisaAdametz-Smile-1

Hi there crafty friends! It's Lisa back with another project for ya and, like my DT teamies Tiffany and Rita, I have a project featuring the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. Talk about ESP, huh?

These pencils are by far the best watercolor pencils I have ever owned in their category. The color is richly pigmented and lightfast and turns into a waterproof color once dry. The leads are glued through the bore of the pencil so that they never break. The triangular shape is ergonomic = so comfortable to work with.  But let me show you a quick card I made with them so you can see for yourself what a dream they are...

Watercolored Animal Stack!

IMG_2833

Hello Blogosphere!

It's Tiffany here today and I have a video tutorial showing you how I used my most favorite coloring medium, the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, to create this cute birthday card for Lawn Fawn's 5th Birthday!

What's not to love about these awesome pencils? Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils are so many things.

  1. Water Soluble, so they glide onto wet surfaces!
  2. Waterproof once dry, which is great for adding layers and depth!
  3. Lightfast, so they never fade!
  4. They're as precise or blended as you want them to be!
  5. The leads never break when sharpened.
  6. Their triangular grips ensure they don't roll around on your desk!
  7. You can use them with all of the other mediums in the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Mix & Match product line!

I could go on & on, but really just watch the video and you'll see just how easy it is to color with these!
