Stenciled Watercolor Background

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here today with a Video Tutorial showing you an easy way to create a beautiful background with the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils! I'm currently on Spring Break Vacation, so I was inspired by the ocean in Florida!

If you're not familiar with the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, they're pretty amazing and my most favorite product in the Design Memory Craft® Mix & Match line! Not only are they completely water soluble, but you can get beautiful vibrant detail with them that will last because they're also lightfast & permanent once they're dry! I especially love how portable they are!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you're inspired to create something of your own today!

See you soon,

Stenciling Transparencies


Stencilled-transparency-car
Stenciling is such a wonderful technique with so many possibilities. It's Julia Stainton here today with a project  that puts a spin on stenciling and has a great touch of glam.

There's so many different surfaces that you can stencil on. Most often I use paper but you can also stencil on fabric, canvas, wood and actually almost anything. I've been wanting to try stenciling on transparencies but not every medium is suited for adhering itself to the slick plastic surface. The new Texture Luxe™ from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®  is a wonderful product and I couldn't wait to try it out and see how it worked on the transparencies.

I made a little tutorial for you:

 

Can't you see yourself using various mediums in the background? Maybe a melted Paper Crafter Crayons Background with some Texture Luxe™ Gold on top? The sky's the limit!
