Video Tutorial: Texture Cards Reveal

TiffTextureCardsMay1

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here with a fun technique featuring the new Texture Cards!!! This technique is so versatile because there are so many mediums you can use as both the background and texture on top! There are 8 different textures, which means so much possibility!

I made a little tutorial for you:

 

Can't you see yourself using various mediums in the background? Maybe a melted Paper Crafter Crayons Background with some Texture Luxe™ Gold on top? The sky's the limit!

Closer Look:

MOM Scrapbook Page Using Texture Cards

MOM Scrapbook Page Using Texture Card by Margie Higuchi MAY15

This weekend is Mother's Day and I am far away from mine. So I took a picture of my mom and me from our last visit together and made a scrapbook page.

I wanted to try the new Texture Cards set to create my background. So I grabbed my Whipped Spackle and cardstock to make a sample board on each Texture Card. This is how it came out... Hard to choose, right? LOL! But I ended up using Texture Card #8.

Dress it Up with Texture Cards and Gelatos

FC Dress Form 4

Lately, I seem to be drawn to dress forms.  I want to paint and draw them.  They are feminine, free and full of imagination for the viewer and the artist. No words necessary.  You can fill with color, texture, techniques and/or patterns.  Just simple yummy goodness.

Take the Challenge with Mou, May 2015

Hi everyone, Mou here with the fifth Take the Challenge of 2015.

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®.

My May prompt for you is SPRING. Create anything you like that relates to spring in some way. Here's my art journal page.
 
FCDMCMay2015_TTCWM_MouS
 
On this project, I used:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents & Tools: Gesso, Gel Medium, Texture Luxe™ Gold, Whipped Spackle, Texture Cards, Gelatos Mist Maker Set
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mixed Media Stencils 101 collection: Dots
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Colors: Blueberry, Cotton Candy (BLUE set), Margarita Mix (TROPICAL set)
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Essential PITT Artist pens BLACK
Others: Sizzix Die Watering Can; die-cutting system; art journal, patterned papers
 
And here are the steps.
 
FCDMCMay2015_TTCWM_Step1_MouS
 
Apply a moderately thick coat of Gesso to prime the journal page. While still wet, color with Margarita Mix Gelatos color. Create a texture pattern using Texture Card # 8.
 
FCDMCMay2015_TTCWM_Step2_MouS
 
In a bowl, mix about 3 parts water and 1 part gesso. Add in Blueberry and Cotton Candy Gelatos colors by cutting a little off with the palate knife. Mix well.
 
FCDMCMay2015_TTCWM_Step3_MouS
 
With a drip dropper, drop a generous quantity of the above mix and let it travel around by turning the journal page in different directions.
 
FCDMCMay2015_TTCWM_Step4_MouS
 
Go back in with the same Texture Card to accentuate the texture further.
 
FCDMCMay2015_TTCWM_Step5_MouS
 
Apply Whipped Spackle through the Dots stencil. Let dry. Rub in some Texture Luxe Gold with your fingers around the page. When the page feels dry, drip in more of the liquid mix prepared above.
 
FCDMCMay2015_TTCWM_Step6_MouS
 
After the water dries, Add diecut watering can and some handcut water drops with gel medium. Let dry.
 
With PITT Artist pen, outline the elements, doodle and journal on the page. Again, drip in more of the liquid mix to finish.
 
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, 5/15 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.
 
The prize for this challenge is: One pack of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Texture Cards.

Good luck to all!

Did you know? with Rita Barakat

RitaBarakat.com Apron
Hey there artsy peeps! Rita Barakat here with my latest apron. Did  you know that you can use PITT® Artist Pens and Big Stampers Brush pens work on fabric? They are filled with India ink, which means they are odorless, waterproof, lightfast and archival. The images you make  stay bright and vibrant for many years to come. I have even thrown aprons in the wash with detergent and they come out beautifully - no change in the colors! I love that! This apron was made especially for one of my blog readers! I hope she loves it!

RitaBarakatApron
Because of the delicate fabric I did choose to use a little Gesso under the face. You have to test your fabrics if you choose to use them - thicker fabrics work quite well and don't bleed, but this particular fabric did (looks like she had chapped lips! LOL). No need to panic though, a little Gesso adds a stiffness to the fabric and keeps the marks in place - especially important when doing faces.

Here is a close up! I love products that have multi-purposes don't you? What will you do with your PITT® Artist Pens?

Blessings!
Rita

    Dear Jen, Our son is an astrophysicist. I will absolutely love making something like this for him. I am not nearly as talented as you are, so there will be a few (many) changes, but I know it will make him smile. Thank you. Dee

  • Angela S on Guest Design Team Call!

    If only I had the confidence to put what I create online on a regular basis! Good luck to those who apply! :)

    Thanks! Lisa

  • Tricia Ann on Be Strong Tag Using Texture Gems - With Lisa

    Lisa, your tag is awesome! I love, love, love the beautiful colors and textures you chose, as well as the way you put them together. I opened an email today from Faber-Castell about the Ustream Class on Wed., May 27, 2015. I watched the DIY All Occasion Party Banner and made a comment to be entered in the giveaway. The demonstrator (I couldn't find her name anywhere) said that if we comment on the blog we have a chance at winning the grand prize. I couldn't find a link to your blog anywhere on the Ustream page. I went to Faber-Castell website and couldn't find anywhere to write a comment. I went through the Ustream video several times to find out how to get to the page where I was to leave a comment. FINALLY, I discovered that Faber-Castell has a blog. I've looked throughout this blog and couldn't find a place to leave a comment about joining you for the Ustream class on May 27th. When I browsed through the site, the sections are not dated so I had to keep searching. At last I settled on writing to you here on your texture tag demo. Where should I leave a comment to register for the grand prize? Thank you!
