"Blissful" Canvas Creation


Bliss Canvas



Hi All.  My name is Tiare Smith and this is my first post as a Summer 2014 Guest Design Team Memer.  I am simply thrilled and completely honored to share my creativity with you.  

When I got my box of goodies I knew immediately that I had to use the Paper Crafter Crayons™ and a canvas idea was born.  Nothing like playing with new artsy supplies!  Ohhh baby!

Well, here we go, an artsy video just for you.  I share the process and step-by-step instructions for completing your own, "Blissful" Canvas Creation...LET'S GO!


 Here are a few close-ups so you can enjoy all of the yumminess!

A Going Away Canvas

600WM ILScrapperCanvas

Hi, Margie Higuchi here! I am sharing a special canvas project, using a combination of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gelato® sticks and Textural Accent products. 

Summer brings weddings, graduations and Father's Day but also moving days like my crafting friend, Chris. In her honor, I created this {IL Scrapper} Canvas for her new craft room in New Jersey! We belong to an online group based in Illinois and have been IL Scrappers members for 10 years!

If you are like me, I am sure there's a TON of letter stickers in your stash? No? How about spelling and listing out words with left overs!

Art Journal Page with Jen Matott



Hi creative friends!  I am so very excited to see the new products that Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® has released.  One of them is full of my artwork!  In fact, I designed the art and instruction booklet photos/ write up for this kit! 

It is the second one that I've designed for  them and I'm thrilled with how it looks!  WOW!  I can't wait for you to be able to get your hands on this kit.  In the process, I had to cut a couple pages out due to space and materials that were going to be included.  So, I wanted to share one of those pages that didn't make the cut with you!

Chalkboard Fun!


Hi Faber-Castell Fans - Karen here again!!  I had SO much fun playing with the Faber-Castell Chalkboard Paint and PITT® Pastel Pencils -  it was one of those projects that just worked from the start and I loved the finish!

My first thought was to create the house with just the PITT® Pastel Pencils because they work SO well on the chalkboard paint, but I thought I would mix it up and add some paper to the mix!!

Coloring page with Gelatos®

Bird from a colouring book

Hello, Olga Siedlecka here. Today I would like to inspire you with a whimsical birdy portrait as Spring is nigh. The idea of copying outlines blew my mind during painting with my daughter in her coloring book. I came across this cute bird and I thought that it would look quite nice on a canvas panel. Versatile Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® media made the process easy peasy.

'Flowers' a canvas...

Final pic wm

Hello everyone!  Krista here again showing you another fun project you can do using some Gelatos®, Stampers Big Brush Pens and Textural Accents.  I've got a little video-slideshow-tutorial on how I created this 6" x 12" canvas. 


This canvas was super fun (and fast) to make.  I used lots of Gelatos® and Stampers Big Brush Pens.  If you've never tried Gelatos® before you MUST!  They are my fav, my go to, my can't live without...lol.  They blend effortlessly with or without water, are compact, highly pigmented acid free color sticks that glide on creamy smooth (just like butter) for maximum color and coverage.  And the Brush Pens always finish things off beautifully.  These pens are all lightfast India Ink and have a durable brush nib for a multitude of uses!  I would be lost without them!  :)

Anyway, hoping this project brightens your day and puts a little glimmer of hope that spring is just around the corner!  

Enjoy your day! ~Krista van Tol
