Hi! It's day 3 of our Blog Hop with Pink Paislee. Jen Matott here to share a little project that I made with the Artisan line and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products. I loved the wooden covers from their album because it's covered in fabric that you can color yourself! I took one of them and made it into a cute hanging sign.
Here's some of the process I used with parts of this sign. I started with creating a spray with the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft 50's Diner Gelatos® set in Banana using the Gelatos® Mist Maker Set.
This kit makes it very easy to make your own sprays from the Gelatos® and some water. I used the Banana color and shaved a bit off with the tool into a dish. I filled the spray bottle up with water and dumped it into the dish. After swirling and mushing up the Gelatos®, I used the eyedropper to put the color in the spray bottle. Viola! Done!
I used a Pink Paislee stencil to create the background. Once it was dry, I added some of the other colors in the corners.
I placed the stencil back over the design and drew with the PITT Artist Pen in black to create sketchy look.
I created some more spray and used it to color the ribbon. I attached the ribbon with adhesive to the back of the wooden plaque so that they were layered.
I love those Artisan shapes and words! They are white and perfect for adding colors to customize your page or project. I used the PITT Artist Pen in Black Small tip to outline the groove in the word.
Here is one of the Artisan papers that has a resist design already on the paper so all you have to do is add color! I used Gelaots to add color and wiped off the color that collected on the resist with a towel. I also colored the butterflies (one was a chipboard resist one and the other is paper) with the Aqua Dolce and Banana.
Before I assembled it all, I added some dots with sequin waste and the Squid Ink Gelato and dabber. I colored some on the craft mat and picked it up with the dabber. I swirled it over the stencil and it created soft dots. Here's a look at the finished project all done again.
