Hello, Faber-Castell fans, Meihsia here sharing with you some quick steps to make these cute mixed media houses using my favorite Faber-Castell Design, Memory, Craft® products.
(You may click on the picture for a lager view)
First, I prepared the materials and tools including Gelato®, Stamper's Big Brush Pen®, Gesso, Gel Meduim, sequin waste ribbon and an old book page, etc.
I also cut a piece of linen canvas paper (size about 3" x 7") into a house shape.
After I drew some lines of the roof, window and door on the paper, I pasted some ripped small pieces of old book page using Gel Medium.
I applied different colors of Gelato on the paper randomly and black Gelato on the roof then used brush pen with water to spread the colors.
Next, I added a thin layer of Gesso to blend with all the colors and made colors softer. Then edged the house and outlined the window and door with black Gelato.
Drew some scalloped lines and shaded the window and door using the white Stamper's Big Brush Pen. I also used the Dot Dabber and sequin waste ribbon to make more texture.
After adding the cutout embellishments, I added a layer of Glaze to make a beautiful sheen and protect the surface.
I used the same techniques and made two more houses except on the left house, I used the Palette Knife and sequin waste ribbon to add Gesso on it.
And on the middle house, I used Gelato and white Stamper's Big Brush Pen to make bubbles and added some stamped text.
I really hope you will try these fun techniques and wonderful products, and make some cute little houses when you get a chance.
Happy creating!! ^_^
