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

This is such a sweet project - love all the colors! Great way to color your ribbon :) Congrats on another term - looking forward to MORE wonderful art from you, Mieko xo

    Dear Jen, Our son is an astrophysicist. I will absolutely love making something like this for him. I am not nearly as talented as you are, so there will be a few (many) changes, but I know it will make him smile. Thank you. Dee

    Lisa, your tag is awesome! I love, love, love the beautiful colors and textures you chose, as well as the way you put them together. I opened an email today from Faber-Castell about the Ustream Class on Wed., May 27, 2015. I watched the DIY All Occasion Party Banner and made a comment to be entered in the giveaway. The demonstrator (I couldn't find her name anywhere) said that if we comment on the blog we have a chance at winning the grand prize. I couldn't find a link to your blog anywhere on the Ustream page. I went to Faber-Castell website and couldn't find anywhere to write a comment. I went through the Ustream video several times to find out how to get to the page where I was to leave a comment. FINALLY, I discovered that Faber-Castell has a blog. I've looked throughout this blog and couldn't find a place to leave a comment about joining you for the Ustream class on May 27th. When I browsed through the site, the sections are not dated so I had to keep searching. At last I settled on writing to you here on your texture tag demo. Where should I leave a comment to register for the grand prize? Thank you!
