Hey there creatives Rita Barakat here! Today I have a tutorial for this mask - use it for dressing up or decoration! ( Your choice but my Baby Girl says it's for dressing up!)You are going to need a plain mask- mine is some type of clay. Your Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products, don't forget gesso, paint brushes, water, glitter, some beads, wet adhesive, a pencil (unless you like to wing it), paper towels (depending on how messy you get) and bling.
I had you grab your gesso because if your mask is slick or soaks up water you need to coat it first. Mine had a coating on the clay so I could skip this step. To test it, simply take a wet paint brush across the surface~ if it soaks in right away or beads up too much you had better coat it. Then draw your design!Once you are happy with your design go over the lines with your PITT® Artist Pens. Grab your Gelatos®Colors. I used Snow Cone, Lime, Margarita Mix, Lavender, Raspberry, Grape and Blueberry. I added color- literally just scribbled randomly over the surface (yes, you can do this!) Get a wet paint brush and blend the colors together. *I blend each color separately rinsing the brush in between, then I go back and blend the colors together so there are no divisions between colors. A fine tip glue pen comes in handy to add bling and beads. Then I added sparkle Mod Podge over the entire surface. Here are some more pictures of the finished project!So what do think?

Wow! I didn't know that one could use Faber-Castell Gelatos on fabric. What a beautiful craft idea for adults and children. I think I'll use this idea for our annual reunion as a project take-home for the children. It would make a nice take-home remembrance!
So funny - I am just the opposite - I can't do as well on a card!! Your mini journal board do look fun though Maya so might have to try. Love your sentiment and your page turned out great. Thanks bunches for the super tutorial too!. j.
