Mixed Media Tag with Gelatos® and more

Hello, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft fans! Meihsia here to share a mixed media project using Gelatos®, 
Stamper's Big Brush Pens and Gesso. I've enjoyed creating using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products
so much and hope you will try them and enjoy them, too. Here are some steps to show
 you how I made this tag.
This is a 6" X 2.75" watercolor paper tag. I apply the Yellow Gelatos on the craft
sheet and spary water to mix it. Press the tag face down on to the Gelatos mixture.

After drying the tag with the heat tool, I apply Black Gelatos on the stamp, spritz
with water and stamp it on the tag.

Dry the tag then apply a thin layer of Gesso to make the stamped background softer.

Apply White Gelatos on a piece of kraft resist paper (4" X 2.25") and use wet brush
to blend the color.

Cover 3 pieces of triangle chipboard banner using Gesso and color them with
3 shades of Blue Gelatos.

Add some interest on the banner using Stamper's Big White Pen and sequin waste.
After assembling all these elements and adding more embellishments I dab
some Gesso randomly as final touch.

Here is the finished tag.
And some close up photos.

I hope you like my creation and get a chance to try these interesting techniques
and awesome products. Have fun!

    Unfortunately this is not my cup of tea, because I love the steampunkt and Halloweencolors.
    Still love the stencil and the feet you used.

    What a spectacular masterpiece!!! Every detail involves a technique I'm dying to try now!!! Seriously, I'm drooling on my keyboard right now, mulling over every beautimous nook and cranny of this marvelous box!!! What an absolute delight to have the opportunity to witness such awesome artistic inspiration!!! Thank you SO much!!! :D

  • Linsey on Graphic 45 blog hop day 4 with Rita

    What a brilliantly charming creation!!! I love how Rita created that most wonderful texture with her Whipped Spackle and cool stencil design! Then painted with those scrumptious Gelatos and addition of real metal feet, this piece takes on the look of something much more fabulous than that of mere cardboard!!! I mean, WOW!!! The victorian Gilded Lily collection is absolute perfection to coordinate with the box and makes for a stunning little work of art!!! Rita has worked her magic and super-inspiration again!! :D Thanks for never disappointing!!!
