Scrapbook Page with Gelatos and Metallic PITT Pens
Hi there everyone!
Katarina here with today's Guest Design Team post.
I was so happy to be invited in to the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Guest Design team.
And when my box arrived at my front door I was so happy to find some Mix & Match Media Samplers sets, featuring Gelatos™ in my box. Such a great product, each set includes a Stamper´s Big Brush Pen, Metallic Gelato™, Pastel Art GRIP® Pencil and Metallic PITT® artist pen.
My first project was to try out these Gelatos™ for one of my scrapbook pages.
The Gelatos ™ are a creamy, acid-free pigment sticks with vibrant colors that blend with or without water.
I used the Gelatos™ without water on a French Lace paper doily in the background, I gently stroke the Metallic Mint Gelatos™ over the surface of the Doily, and smudged the pigment in with my fingers, that gave the doily a shimmery look, I also stroked some Metallic Melon Gelatos™ that gave an absolutely wonderful vintage effect to my project.
I also used my Metallic Melon gelatos™ as a smudged chalk on the edges of my butterfly accent.
I loved using the Metallic PITT® Artist Pens to write journaling, and add highlights on my page. The pen is odorless, lightfast, Permanent India Ink, in brilliant metallic colors, that do not bleed.
The fact that the pens are odorless is a big plus for me personally, since I often suffer from headaches due to strong solvent odor art mediums.
I had so much fun playing, and I really look forward to my next art project already J
Have a really great day!
