Hello! It's Amy here today, to share a layout I made with a super cool and fun technique! I discovered the power of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft gesso and Paper Crafter Crayons, working in tandem....and it creates a really fabulously artsy look.
Using a mask or stencil, and gesso (which looks fabulous on their own), layering a background of texture and design is easy. Once dry, adding melted paper crafter crayons using an iron, is a simple way to add plenty of pizazz to any project. Have a look at a quick video I created sharing this technique.
Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you'll give this technique a try, I think you'll have so much fun with it....stepping out of the box is always a great way to discover yourself as an artist and crafter!

Amy Lynne Lassiter I am a mom to 3 lovely daughters, the wife to my best friend from college, a singer and librarian. I dream of living in Hawaii some day very soon, but for now, I make my home in northeast Kansas. I grab every spare second I can to create art...using as much mixed media as I can on scrapbook pages, altered items, art journal pages and more; expressing my heart, emotion, and soul on each project. As well as having the honor of being a guest designer for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft, I also design for Gauche Alchemy, UmWowStudio, Viva Las VegaStamps, Genuinely Jane Studios, and Paper Issues.
