Hello everyone. Terri here. Today I want to share with you a layout I completed using several different Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products. So, let's get started! First, here's a look at what I have created.
I love creating my own backgrounds for layouts. I think my pictures deserve mini works of art to showcase them! (This is my oldest son in Spain last summer)
I began with a 12 x 12 sheet of kraft cardstock. To create some layers I first stamped with a world map stamp randomly on the background using a Dark Indigo Stamper’s Big Brush Pen. These are a staple in my craft bag. I rarely use inks to stamp anymore because these pens are permanent india ink. They come is so many colors and are very versatile. Just color directly onto your stamp and viola! Perfection!
After stamping I grabbed the Chalkboard Paint to add additional layers. I used 2 different stencils and "painted" the chalkboard paint through them. It dries very quickly so it was easy to move the stencils around the page and overlap them.
The Chalkboard Paint dries to a lucious matte color. To add some shine and dimension I decided to add some color using Gelatos® . I cut a small portion of Gelatos® Double Scoop® Snow Cone and Gelatos® Pistachio and mixed them with water.
