Just say yes - art journal by Maya Isaksson

Maya Isaksson art journal faber castell design memory craft600

I really love to make pages in my art journal. To me it's a fun way to try out new techniques, products or just play a bit without the need for it to be perfect. And if something goes wrong there's always Gesso to cover everything up and start over again. This time I was in the mood to make something soft and calm instead of bright and colorful as I usually do. Here's how I made my page.

A Gel Printing Experiment with Marjolaine Walker

 

DMC-BeArtJournal2

Hello creative friends, it's Marjolaine Walker here and I'm back with the second part of my mini mixed media art journal. Since I'm inspired by people who are true to themselves, I decided to expand on the words that I had on the other six pages of my journal. Be brave, kind, honest, bold, amazing and REAL! This time I experimented with something new, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products with a gel printing plate. It was a lot of fun seeing what worked and what didn't and I hope you will try it for yourself. I mixed and matched some Gelatos®,  Texture Luxe™ and  Chalk Board Paint and finished it off with Pitt Artist Big Brush Pens which are permanent, light fast, acid free and archival. I recorded the process so you could see, I hope you enjoy the video!

Stenciled Negative Background

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here today with another way to use those Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils with the new Mixed Media Stencils! I love the new Mixed Media Stencils because they come in a variety of patterns at an affordable price! They're also disposable, but with a coat of glaze you can prolong their life & usability! Pretty neat, right?

I hope you're inspired to try this SUPER EASY technique on your own!

Mini Mixed Media Journal with Marjolaine Walker

BeArtJournal1

Hi creative friends, Marjolaine Walker here with my first post as a guess designer. I am so thrilled to be here! This project is part one of a two part project.  The Mini Mixed Media Journal has twelve pages and today I am showing you six. I will be doing something different to finish up the rest of the journal.

For my projects I rely heavily on Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Mix and Match collections. The reason for this is that I am partially color blind and need all the help I can get in putting colors together! Mix and Match takes the guess work out of it for me because the colors are set to look fantastic together. All the Gelatos® I used come from the 15 piece Brights that has quickly become my favorite!

An art journal page with Mou

Hi everyone, Mou here today with an art journal page.

Summer is a time for going camping or RV-ing for many. My page is inspired by a camping staple: a lantern.

FCJuly2015_Tutorial2_MouS

On this project, I used:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents & Tools: Gesso, Gel Medium

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Colors: Buttercream (YELLOW set), Green Tea, Lime (GREEN set), Iced Coffee, Black Cherry (STEAMPUNK set)

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pen: WARM GREY IV (NEUTRAL set), SCARLET RED (RED set)

Others: Sizzix Die Rustic Lantern; die-cutting system; art journal, old book paper, patterned paper 

And here are the steps.

With Gel Medium, attach some old book papers to your journal page. Attach a patterned paper block at the center. Color the page with Gelatos colors. Ink up stamp with Warm Grey Stamper's Big Brush pen and stamp around the page. Add some gesso on parts of the page and blend it in.

Layer the diecut lantern on the page with Gel Medium. Color the lantern with Scarlet Red Stamper's Big Brush pen and add shadowing with Black Cherry Gelatos color and highlights with Gesso. Add shadowing around the lantern using Warm Grey Stamper's Big Brush pen.

Cut text out of old book paper and attach it to the lantern. Draw a frame around it with pencil to finish.

Hope you enjoyed today's post and have fun creating with all the fun Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products this summer!

Ann Corbiere-Scott's Bloom Art Journal page featuring Aquarelle water color pencils

IMG_6706

Hi, Ann Corbiere-Scott here and I am over the moon to be a little part of the most amazing company, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®! I am thrilled to share some Art GRIP® Aquarelle watercolor pencil artsy fun with you!  I love art journaling, I have oodles of them!  I find them a excellent way to try out new techniques and products, coupled with a positive message is absolutely perfection to me! 

Here we go! I am madly in love with the mini Mixed Media journal, so I took a page from mine and jumped right in!

1. I adhered a vintage book paper page onto the mixed media journal page with Gel Medium.

2. I painted a thin layer of Chalkboard paint over the book paper, I wanted to be able to slightly see the words through the paint.

3. On another sheet of book paper, I loosely drew some organic flowers and leaves with Art GRIP Aquarelle water color pencils (I used 168 for the leaves and 117,121,111, 107, 152, 125, 162, and 156 for flowers). With a wet brush, activate the watercolor to create loose, flowy flower and leaf shapes.

4. With an XS PITT® Artist Pen, randomly scribble draw flower and leaf outlines around painted shapes.

5. Cut out and adhere in a frame like shape, with Gel Medium, taking a moment to layer and tuck pieces under others for lots of visual interest and depth. ( here's a trick I use-before I adhere it all down, I play with placement of all of the bits and pieces. Once I have a layout I really like, I take a photo with my cell phone, then I have a visual reminder to work from when adhering!)

6. Lastly, I wrote the word bloom with a pencil onto the open chalkboard space. Next, I traced over the pencil lines with the silver (251) pencil. To add depth to your handwritten letters, widen the down strokes. Fill in the open down stroke spaces with the silver pencil. Go over the outer lines of each letter with a Silver (251) PITT artist pen 1,5 and add a few coordinating colored enamel dots for a bit more dimension.

Supplies used

  • Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils (green 168 for leaves,red/ orange 117, red 121, orange 111, yellow 107,blue 152, purple 125, green 162, teal 156, silver 251 for lettering)
  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Gel Medium
