Amazing Day Mixed Media Chipboard Scene


Hello, Joy here!  I had the best time creating this mixed media scene using Faber Castell Design Memory Craft products!


I started with some scrap paper that I had leftover from previous projects.  I tore the paper into shapes and adhered it using Glaze.  It's great for gluing and making things shiny!  Next, I painted chipboard with Gesso.  It helped me have a brighter base color for adding a layer of Gelatos.


After the Gesso dried, I covered the board with the Snow Cone Gelato.  To spread the color out a bit more, I painted over the Gelato with water.


I added the torn paper to my chipboard using Glaze.  It's so useful!  I painted the back of the paper and stuck it down, then I covered the front of it too.  That helped me get the edges down well and also provided a  pretty sheen.


I used the Pitt Artist Pen Big Brush in black to color my car stamp.  Then, I stamped my image on a scrap piece of patterned paper and cut it out.


To make the patterned paper have a more cohesive look with the rest of the project, I toned it down by painting it with the Pink Madder Lake Big Brush pen.  I added a little water to thin the color a bit.  I also used Gelatos and more Big Brush pens to help me finish the look of the car.


I added buttons to tops of wooden arrows to make flowers.  I colored directly onto the wooden arrows and hearts with the Big Brush pens.  Aren't they versatile?!  I love them!


I used pop dots to pop up the car and the stamped sentiment.

That is so awesome!!! Love that car---it's PINK!!

Thank you, Laura! I had a blast making this. :)

Where can I get that car stamp? My daughter just bought a VW bug convertible...looks just like that stamp! It would be great on a SB page for her.

    Thanks, Lisa. Things will get easier as I get familiar with the website.

  • Ruby C on Be Strong Tag Using Texture Gems - With Lisa

    I keep looking at your tag because there is so much too see. Wonderful and creative use of products, beautiful shimmer and fun texture. That is a pretty interesting stamp too. I don't have any glitter gems yet but they do look like they would be fun to experiment with.

    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

  • Angela S on Guest Design Team Call!

    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!
