Home Décor Project


Hi everyone! Mieko here. First of all, I am so exited to be part of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Guest Design Team for a second term. Today I would like to share with you all a Home décor project I made using New Textural accent medium, Chalkboard paint. Chalkboard Paint is a dynamic medium containing actual chalkboard properties when applied, great for contrast in mixed media projects.

I applied Chalkboard paint to the chipboard and allowed to dry.


 I applied Black Gelato directly on the edges of a piece of paper and used my finger to spread.


 I colored the flowers with Bubble Gum, Guava and Snow Cone Gelatos ® double Scoop® Colors and used brush pen with water to spread the colors.


I used Stamper’s Big White Pen to draw Love. Stamper ‘s Big White Pen makes it easy to write and draw on darker colors paper and board.


I applied a bit of water onto my clear stamp first with my fingers, applied White Gelato to the clear stamp and then stamped randomly. DSC00174

I have attached a photo of my sweet cat.
