Mini Mixed Media Journal Board


Hello! Mieko here today sharing another project as Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Guest Designer. I used Mini Mixed Media Journal boards and some of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products-Gelatos®, Stamper’s Big Brush Pens and Art Grip Aquarelles.

I started by painting the background with Gesso and dried it with a heat gun. I applied some of Gelatos® directly on my board and blended colors with my finger.



I applied Big Brush Pen directly to a clear acrylic stamp and stamped it.



I applied the keyhole with Stamper's Big White Pen.


I colored Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils onto the papers and blended using a Water Brush.



I chopped a bit of Gelato® and blended with water in the bottle. I dyed May Arts’ ribbon. I used ribbons to bind my journal pages together.



 This Mini Journal is perfect for all your design, memory and craft projects. I hope you enjoy my creation.

I don't know which color the last picture is, but give me a spoon. It looks good enough to ear! I also think it would be a great color of paint for a bedroom. Your journal is adorable.

Thanks, Susie! I have used guava guava Gelatos® from Gelatos Colors.


I love it. Simple but cute <3
