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.

Congrats on your second term :) I loved how you created your window box project - great way to show off the new chalkboard paint :) LOVE the Stamper's Big White Pen too! LOL! Wonderful inspiration xo


ahhh, that is so cute! Your little kitty picture is just so sweet! And I love this project. Awesome work, love how you stamped the chalkboard paint with the white gelato, and the painted flowers are amazing and a neat trick too. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi. I love Rita's style! I wanted to know if she would share how she did the black area that's over the blue and red on the sample journal page she did? (shown above - the one that says 'remember' on it) It almost looks like it might be with plastic wrap or something. Looks very cool! :D

    Like the look of the chalkboard black peeking through with the black stamping on top. I bet this would be fun to try with the texture cards too. Love your finished canvas. Your young lady's eyes are so expressive. I'm sure I'll see you again on the Design Memory Craft blog.

    Hi Tiare!

    I went to visit your website - and there's nothing there. :(

  • Tamiko on Butterfly Love

  • Ruth Gauss on Mini Book Cover

    So beautiful! What wonderful texture you got with the bricks and I love the soft watercolored flowers! And I learned that you can use the waterbrush to take color directly from the Gelatos - that's so good to know! Thanks so much for sharing!
