Bold and colourful Art Journal book cover

Art journal 

Hi Everyone, Beck Beattie here again to share with you how I created this cover for my next Art Journal.  I just love these Mixed Media Journals as they really take the layers and different products without warping.  You really can have LOADS of fun with them.  
I must say I really love how the bright colours still pop against that chalkboard base.  Here is a video I made to show you how the layers came together to get this look


The Faber-Castell® Design Memory Crafts® products I used on this Art Journal cover are:

  • Gelatos® tool set
  • Gelatos®
  • Glaze, Gel Medium
  • Mixed media Journal
  • PITT Big Brush Pens
  • Whipped Spackle]
  • Chalkboard, Gesso

Here are some detail pics also where you can look at the effects all those layers created.

Don't be scared to have fun with your Art Journalling.  I find it such a great way to play with newproducts and see what they can do in different ways.

Hope you enjoyed my share today and I can't wait to be back here with another :)

I love this journal & the process; full of many techniques which creates pretty colors and lots of dimension. Thanks for sharing, Beck!


One day I will own some faber castel products

Melissa Hurley

I would love this! Could finally add some art journaling to my project Life stuff!


This is gorgeous! I am totally impressed with the results you achieved with these products. Best video I have seen showing how use them.


My two daughters and myself, like to scrapbook and art projects together! This would really kick it up a notch! We would really have some fun with this!


Love the Gelatos kit - my 6 yo daughter is big into faeries right now - I'm planning a big mural (on paper, as her interests change quickly!)for her room - the way the colors blend would work wonderful for what I'm thinking!

Laura Bohall

Great job-much appreciated!

Tammy Renken

I love all your products but my favorite are the pit big brush pens - I use them all the time in my art and would love to have all colors.


I just bought my first 12 set of gelatos and can't wait to do something like this. This was beautiful. Thank you for sharing
