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.
