IMG_6309

Hi there! Laurel Beard here as a guest designer for the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Design Team.  I'm here with the first part of the Mixed Media Journal I am creating....  Throughout my time here, I will mix it up and  share the different pages I am creating for my journaling board as well as some cards designs.  I am LOVING all these Faber Castell® Design Memory Craft® line and I love that all the products are mix & match! Today's journaling board uses the Gelatos®Whipped Spackle, and Stamper's Big Brush Pens.

This was so much fun to create, and super easy too!!!! I hope you will check out the video below... You can watch it right here or over on my youtube channel.

Art Journal with Jen Matott

JournalJenMatott1

I'm in a "Art Journal Swap" that trades journals and each person does a page in it following a theme that is set by the owner of the book.  It's fun to see what others have done in the book prior to you getting it but it's equally fun to create a page to pass on!

This book's owner left the theme up to each artist.  I just chose to create something mixed media with texture and color!  I wanted to keep my theme about art and creation.

Limiting your color palette- Steampunk Colors

RitaBarakatSteampunkGelatosA100
Hey there Arsty peeps Rita Barakat here!  I am doing a little spotlight on Steampunk Gelatos®Colors. If you are ever stuck for ideas sometimes limiting your color palette can be a great way to challenge yourself! Especially if the colors are outside of your comfort zone! That's what I did here on this art journal page. By repeating layers of complementary colors you can get a lot of depth in your work and challenging your self is always a great way to grow!

How about a Shamrock shake? And the winners of March Take the Challenge

FCMarch2015_ArtJournal_MouS

Hi everyone, Mou here with today's post! It's an art journal page. We are not Irish, but living here in the U.S., we are touched by many cultures and their celebrations in one way or another. For instance, on St. Patrick's Day, the kids have to wear something green to school and we love having Shamrock shakes from McDonald's... and I think it's great to have these opportunities to learn about other countries and cultures.

 To create this page, I took the following steps:

Attach old book paper to journal page with Gel Medium.

When dry, apply a coat of Gesso.

Sketch a drink cup with straw.

Color the page with Gelatos®colors: Lavender, Red Cherry, Mango, Pistachio, Blueberry, Grape, Coconut, Aqua Dolce, and Black Cherry. Blend with waterbrush.

Journal next to the cup with PITT® artist pen BLACK.

Dot the page with Stamper's Big White pen to finish.

Supplies:

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

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®: Blueberry, Grape (BLUE set); Lavender, Red Cherry (RED set); Mango (YELLOW set); Pistachio (GREEN set); Aqua Dolce (50's DINER); Coconut (NEUTRALS set); Black Cherry (STEAMPUNK set) 

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big White pen
 
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Essential PITT Artist pens: BLACK
 
Hope you enjoyed today's post and would journal about the big and little things about how other cultures impact your lives!

And now, the winners of  March 2015 Take the Challenge with Mou...
