Hi Everyone! Carisa back with you today and I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! I know we're already half into the month of January and time just continues to fly by. Hopefully, the newness, hope and anticipation of the new year has not worn off on you yet. I love the feeling of fresh beginnings and a clean slate. For my project today, I wanted to create something to hang on my wall to remind me to be positive every single day. I used some of my favorite products including: Gelatos® Colors 50's Diner Collection and Stamper’s Big Brush Pen for my stamping as well as Texture Luxe™ for added shine and dimension and more! A list of all the supplies used today can be found below.
Welcome to the FIRST Take the Challenge of 2016 with Mou! Let me start by wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
Hi everyone! Carisa here. Today I'm back to share with you a pretty mixed media canvas using primarily Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® Colors. I was inspired by the pretty papers I had just received as well as the rub on from the collection. I wanted to see how it would work over a background made with Gelatos® Colors. I pulled out Butter Cream Gelatos®, Kiwi Gelatos®, Aqua Dolce Gelatos®, Earl Grey Gelatos® from the Pastels Set and Iced Currant Gelatos® from the Metallics Set.
I started out by covering my entire canvas with Gesso and adhering pattern paper with Gel Medium. Then I added Gelatos® Colors using one of my favorite methods by scribbling a lot of color on and spritzing with water then letting it drip down the canvas.
After drying that with a heat tool, I applied Gelatos® Colors through a stencil from the 101 Collection using a baby wipe. I then added the rub on and coated it with a thin layer of Gel Medium to protect it for coloring later. I also added some Texture Luxe through a stencil to add more texture and tie in the gold from the rub on.
Finally, I colored in the flower using Stamper’s Big Brush Pens and added some Glass Bead Glitter Gel on top. To see the entire process, I have a video for you:
Gelatos® Colors (Kiwi, Aqua Dolce, Butter Cream, Earl Grey, Iced Currant)
Glass Bead Glitter Gel
Metallic PITT® Artist Pens (Red, Copper)
Mixed Media Stencils (101 Collection)
Stamper’s Big Brush Pen (Dark Naples Ochre 184, Pink Madder Lake 129, Cold Grey III 232, Cold Grey IV235)
Texture Luxe™ (Gold)
I hope you enjoyed this mixed media canvas using two of my favorite techniques with Gelatos® Colors.

Aloha Guys! This is Joyce from http://enjoyscrappin2 and I'm excited to share this Photo transfer I did on a canvas. I was a little nervous doing this project, since it was my first attempt at photo transfer. It's not perfect but I think it turned out ok :) I've use various products from the Faber Castell Design Memory Craft® line and I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did. Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll see you guys later. Thanks again.
Hi everyone! It's Lisa here on the blog to share a really special project with you. I have a 3-D Felt Poinsettia on Gessoboard accented with Texture Gems™ . This project DOES take a while to create, I won't lie to you, but it is soooo worth the effort.
Hey there artsy peeps Rita Barakat here today! If you missed last weeks posts you might want to go and check it out. With holidays around the corner this is a great time to get creative about last minute gift wrapping ideas and we shared a lot last week! After all of that I was thinking how about those of you who say you have no time to get creative this season? Why not do a little double duty and get creative with your gift wrapping! I don't mean fancy ribbons or bows either! I bet you thought this was a canvas? Nope it is a gift box! A 5x7, 3/4 inch deep gift box I "decorated" with my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products! You can create little works of art too and personalize them for the person who will be receiving this gift! It's easy, quick and I know you already have the supplies! Let's get started!
FABER-CASTELL DMC GDT Hee Sun Kim here and I am excited to be sharing my first post.
I would like to share the creative background using the Gelatos.
Hey there artsy friends Rita Barakat here with a mixed media canvas! This one is out of my comfort palette of colors but you know, weird thing, of all the canvas' I have made lately this is my favorite. I love it when it all comes together! I do try to use all types of colors but I tend to use my "go to" colors - blues, purples, greens (have you seen my hair? LOL) but I have two sweet daughters that LOVE pink so of course I have to go there...sometimes. So let's get started!
Today, I will be showing you by X'mas canvas.
