Hi Artsy Friends! It's always fun to share a journal page that I have worked on with you! I am doing a sort of "round robin" journal swap with fellow art teachers in my school district and this page was one of them using lots of stencils and layers. I wanted to try some different materials together and use different techniques.
Art GRIP® Color Pencils

When I got these products, I immediately thought of Frida Kahlo with that image on the stamp. Frida was an amazing female Mexican artist in the 1940's-1950's. She used her heart and soul in every artwork she created and you can see the story of her life in her work! She went through so many tragic and painful experiences but didn't let that affect her ability to make art. In fact, it was therapy for her!
Hey everyone! Lisa here with you and I wanted to share a really sweet card that's not too time-consuming to replicate if you're in need of "Thank You" cards, which we all need plenty of. (I never seem to have enough on hand!)
Let me show how simple this card is to make...
Hello, it´s Denisa. Today I´d like to share with you my handmade magnets. They´re made of ordinary jar lids. I wanted to spruce up my kitchen a little bit because it´s quite small and the only place for some flat decorations is my fridge. So decorative magnets were the right thing.
Hey there creatives, Rita Barakat here with an easy way to add depth and texture to your mixed media projects! This tag was created on vellum paper.
I wrote a little quote on my sketch book - I am always writing down ideas for use at a later time! The vellum is great because I can see the lettering underneath and trace it. (this is also a good way to practice writing!- you can always print it out from your computer but I digress... )
It's hard to tell but there is Whipped Spackle and Texture Luxe Textural Accents on the tag. I used my finger to wipe some onto various areas. The Whipped Spackle is very matte and the Texture Luxe has very high sheen with the pearl like shimmer so they look great together!
I used a baby wipe to blend the Gelatos® Colors -remember you must always blend in Gelatos® Colors, you can't just draw with them, you have to blend that color.
I used a very wet paint brush to flick some splashes of Gelatos® Colors. I traced the writing but I didn't like the way it came out I decided to cover it with Gesso and try it again. (Gesso is your friend!)
Once it dries you can redo your lettering. Here is a close up...
Can you see all that texture? What will you be playing with today?

Hi everyone and welcome to day five of the blog hop with Canvas Corp! To win Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®'s $50 prize, comment below each day this week. One random winner will be selected on April 20th.
Hi everyone! Jen here to share with you a project that creates with Canvas Corp bag and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products. I started with a hexagon stencil from the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mixed Media Stencil 101 Collection and used Gelatos® Colors Brights set to create areas of shape and color.
I used the same stencil to dab Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard Paint over to create some black areas. Once dry, I added Art GRIP® Color Pencil in white over the chalkboard painted shapes as well as PITT® Artist Pen in Black around some of the Gelatos® shapes.
Here's a view of the back of the bag... I just added some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard Paint through the hexagon stencil and drew with the ArtGrip colored pencil in white.
On the front of the bag, I colored with the Gelatos® Colors in Snow Cone from the Brights set. I tipped the bag up ( I suggest putting a piece of cardboard inside the bag to create a flat, solid surface to paint on) and sprayed water to create drips down the surface. Some text was stamped using a Stamper’s Big Brush Pen in black over some areas.
Using that same hexagon stencil, I added some of the Texture Luxe™ in Gold through using a palette knife. Allow to dry completely.
Draw a shape (I created a bee shape) with a PITT® Artist Pen and use as a guide to backstitch using colored floss.
Be sure to hop along with our lovely Design Team all of this week to see what we've made with the Canvas Corp. products and check out THEIR blog to see what they've done with the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products this week, too! I hope you enjoyed my project!

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here with a NEW Video Tutorial hot-off-the-press! This time, I'll be revisiting some important Art GRIP®Color Pencil techniques for Valentine's Day! My video is 3-part: easy (fire hydrant), intermediate (dog), and difficult coloring (bicycle). I'll show you my 3 steps for coloring: base color & shape, contrast & depth, blending & highlighting!
Art GRIP®Color Pencils are acid-free, lightfast, and permanent! The leads also NEVER break because the entire color shaft is glued into its wooden case. You also don't need any special blending stump or Gamsols mineral oils (which are toxic) for blending...this is a HUGE plus for me!
My favorite valentine I ever received was a handmade card from my husband! It had zero sense of balance or art, but was packed full of heart :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope the video helps you in your Art GRIP® Coloring endeavors! What's the most memorable Valentine you've ever received?
