Hi everyone, Mou here with today's project:


On my layout, I used:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Whipped Spackle

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® colors: Gold Champagne and Metallic Blueberry

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mist Maker Set





And now, let me walk you through the steps.


Cut a piece of Ephemera Tissue and attach to background cardstock with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium. 


Whitewash the background with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso.


Attach alphabet masks to spell out title.


Color over the masked area with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® colors: Gold Champagne and Metallic Blueberry.


Peel off mask to reveal the title.


Use a misting bottle to help some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® colorMetallic Blueberry drip down the page.


Fill up a Pic Pocket with green sequins.


Trim a photo to fit inside another Pic Pocket.


Attach Pic Pockets to page and journal with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft PITT Artist pen.


With palette knife and stencil, apply some texture to the page using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Whipped Spackle.


Here's a close-up of detail.

Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and would try out these pretty and fun products that work together like peanut butter and jelly :)
