Wall-Decoration with Gelatos and Textural Accents

Fabercastell-designmemorycraft-andreagomoll-wallart-7

Hi everybody - Andrea Gomoll here with my second Guest-Designteam-Tutorial.

I really LOVE to use unusual (everyday) items in my craft projects or to turn something others would throw away into some sort of art. So I'm also keeping lots of stuff others might toss into the bin for to use it one day. This Styrofoam-Piece, which was part of a Wrapping of something I once bought, was standing here for quite a while and all of a sudden it hit me to create a piece of light-weight wall-art with it. I just grabbed some Gelatos® Colors and the Textural Accents and had some fun ... you can see a detailed instruction in the following video - hope you'll enjoy it ... and next time you want to throw something away - think twice - you might as well be able to create something beautiful with it ;)

Use your Stamper's Big Brush Pens to make a Scrapbook Page

Alexandra1

Hello Friends! alexandra  here, sharing my first post as Guest Designer at Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.

Scrapbooking, cardmaking, stamping, book binding, I enjoy it all! There is one thing though, one particular form of scrapbooking I'm obsessed with and that is recording and documenting the everyday moment.

To do so, I keep not one but two "Project Life" albums. One is the well-known 12x12" album with page protectors that Becky Higgins and her team conceived. The other one which is called "2013 in 52 Pages" is "my baby". It is also a weekly, the pages are 8" and it consists of a simple association of: a photo-collage+some journaling printed on a tag+papers and embellishments.
