Hi crafty friends! It's Lisa here with you today and I'm sharing a little Mixed Media Mini Canvas that I made using just about everything that Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® has on the shelf. ;) It was fun using a little bit of everything. "Mixable Mediums + Matching Color Palettes = Mixed Media Made Simple." It's so VERY true!
I have a lot of photos to share so please bear with me! Let's get started:
Hey there creatives! Rita Barakat here! Lets talk backgrounds shall we? Ombre backgrounds...with texture! And I know you already have the tools! OK go grab them: Gesso, a stencil, your favorite shades of the same color Gelatos®Colors (dark and light) and Whipped Spackle.
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!
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.
Hi everyone! It's Lisa with you today and I'm sharing a card that I created for one of my other creative teams. Here's the thing, though, the entire piece is watercolored using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. Even the black and white. Yep! So, it's an awesome piece to share here, too. :)
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:
Here's a list of supplies I used:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural accents: Gesso
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Colors: Mango (Yellow set), Red Cherry (Red set), Green Tea, Pistachio (Green set), Blueberry (Blue set), Iced Coffee (Steampunk set), Metallic Mint (Metallic set)
Others: adhesive, cardstock, diecutting system, paintbrush, stamp, twine
Here are the steps:
Apply a coat of gesso to the pillow box diecut.
Rub Mango, Green Tea, pistachio and Metallic Mint Gelatos colors to the pillow box. Blend with wet brush.
On a label diecut, stamp sentiment using Black Stamper's Big Brush pen.
Draw a border to the diecut label with Scarlet Red Stamper's big Brush to make look like label stickers.
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.
Tie twine to the pillow box.
Tuck in leaf and label under the twine.
Don't forget to share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to the challenge post with link to your project image(s) by Friday, 11/14 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.
The prizes for this challenge are: One Gelatos Mist Maker set.
Don't forget to check back on Monday, 11/17 to see if YOU won!
Good luck to all!
Hello everyone! I'm Linsey and I'm thrilled to be sharing my very first guest design team project with you today! I had lots of fun creating this mixed media canvas board and it was so easy because all the different Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products mix and match so beautifully together! Here's what I did--
How quickly time flies , its a first day of November !! We are almost at the end of 2014.
Let's begin this month with 'Art Journal Page- Soar'
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft has Mini Journal Boards which are perfect for painting, texturing, layring, misting, embellishing. And I love to do all that in my journal.
