Happy Fall With Raspberry Gelatos and Jamie Dougherty

Hello everyone and Happy Friday. I have a fun mixed media project for you that will get you into the mood for Fall. This project would be perfect for place-cards on Thanksgiving, personal card fronts, or journal inserts. The warm fall leaves as they turn , hold such rich and enchanting colors. Our Raspberry Gelatos is the perfect accent color. The bold purple color blends nicely with the yellows, oranges, and reds that Mother Nature provides us.

(For the best results, press your leaves in a book for a few days prior to beginning)

Take a look at my video below to see how I created this colorful fall piece. Also a couple of quick techniques to try out with your Gelatos and leaves as well.

FCJuly2015_BlogHop_Detail2_MouS

For today's hop project, I decorated an ATC Book Box with various Design Memory Craft products and Graphic 45 embellishments. I have to say the two sets of products work together like peanut butter and jelly! I had SO MUCH FUN. Let me walk you through the steps.

Start by painting the ATC Book Box and the tags with Chalkboard Paint.

Once dry, color the surfaces with Gelatos® colors from the Metallic and Steampunk set. Blend the colors dry with the blending tools from Gelatos Tool set. To add some extra shin, apply a coat of Glaze. Let dry.

Apply Whipped Spackle through stencil on the tags as shown.

When dry, add some more colors with Gelatos® colors and Stamper's Big Brush pen, blending with a wet brush.

Ink up the selected stamps with Stamper's Big Brush pens and stamp randomly around the box and tags.

Next, cut out images from the Inscribe patterned paper and attach to the box and tags with Gel Medium. Also add selected words cut out of old book paper.

Punch a hole on the top of the ATC Book Box and insert the Lion Head Door Knocker. Screw it in place with the provided hardware to create a handle for your box.

Once the tags are thoroughly dry, put them together with the binder ring. Best part is that it can be an ongoing project as you can add more tags as you go!

Hope you enjoyed today's project and be sure to stop by tomorrow for more inspiration.

Hello Everyone! It's Limor Webber here today!

We’re hopping with May Arts this week! We’re so excited to be partnering again with them and crafting with their fabulous ribbons. 
Are you ready for an inspiration filled week with giveaways? Here’s how you can enter: Stop by our blog and the May Arts blog each day this week and leave a comment. Two winners will win $50 of product from us, and 3 spools of ribbons from May Arts. 
Good luck!

I wanted to show you a super quick tutorial on a different way you can use your ribbons.  Join me in 3 super quick steps to create this background.

IMG_9999

First step is take your ribbon and adhere it to the cardstock using Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium

IMG_0001

 

Take your favorite Gelatos® and apply them on to the ribbon as shown.  With a paint brush, water and your finger go ahead and start blending those colors together.  You'll start to see how easy those creamy and silky colors just mix and blend.

 

IMG_0002

The last step to my background was adding a little bit of the white Gelatos® to tone down the brightness and allow all three colors to blend perfectly.

Here is an example of how easy it is to complete this card in seconds using any stencil and an inspirational sticker or phrase!

I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial!

Simple Christmas Holiday Photo Tags

FB tag post 1

Hi everyone! Christine here.  Today's project was inspired by my three-year-old nephew. We'll be opening gifts together on Christmas morning and I want him to be able to find his own gift under the Christmas tree, despite not being able to read quite yet. Like you, I have a number of gifts to tag and wanted something personal, but simple. And I wanted to use supplies I already had. Voila, Christmas Photo Tags were born!

ATC's 1 drawing, three ways!

RitaBarakatATCdrawings6100     Hey there Rita Barakat here! Today I am sharing some ATC's  I have been working on! RitaBarakatATC100 So I had this idea - 1 drawing three ways. I  thought what if I drew one girl and traced her two more times - could I make three totally different ATC's? Of course the answer is YES! First step, trace on each ATC.( I am just drawing on tracing paper so all of the details don't necessarily transfer but that's OK. RitaBarakatATCdrawings100 With the basics in time to place, it's time to make adjustments- different hair,lips, eyes... RitaBarakatATCdrawings2100 Time for color! This time I grabbed my Art GRIP® Aquarelles. RitaBarakatATCdrawings3100 Spread the color with a wet paint brush. RitaBarakatATCdrawings4100 Hair color is so fun!!! RitaBarakatATCdrawings5100 Gold Gelatos®Colors for the background! RitaBarakatATCdrawings6100 A black PITT® Artist Pen for details and there you have it! 1 drawing, 3 ways!
