Glorious Gelatos and a Canvas


It was time to create but I had no mojo.  You see I have been busy planning my very first public showing of my art, an all day crop, as well as a visit from a dear friend.  Planning hasn't left much time for creativity.  This day was particularly busy, but I had to get something created for my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® post.  Well, what is a girl to do???

I go to my studio and the thought process begins.  I grab a canvas and the new Gelatos® Steampunk .  I knew I wanted to use the Gelatos® Black Cherry for the  flowers.  Creativity begins.  As I create, I am not too sure how this is going to turn out.  Not so sure I like it.  However, as I continue, blending and smoothing edges with water and my fingers, adding shading and light, I begin to like it more and more. To my surprise on this day, I'm feeling like, "Wow, sometimes when I do not want to create, I am able to create something more beautiful than when I do want to create."  LOL!  It's a fun and silly thought and for me it's true...just for this moment.  

I am feeling happy and stress free.  Feeling grateful for being on the summer design team, for it has given me direction and a reason to create and relax.  So perfect, for an otherwise busy day.  Here it is.  The not so cute start and the awesome finish.

Full Bloom Chalkboard by Tonya Gibbs



Hi everyone,  I'm super excited to bring  you today's project. I've created this Chalkboard Art that would make an awesome gift for someone.   This project is one of those that started out being one thing and ended up being something totally different.  I started out wanting to make watercolor card gift sets to share with friends. But when I finished the Art Panel it was just too beautiful to turn into a card. It needed to be displayed on a wall!

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!
