Water Coloring using Gelatos® with Mindy.

Mindy
 
Hi there everyone. It's GDT Mindy here.

I'm so very excited about being a guest designer for Faber-Castell.

Today I have a little water coloring project I made using Gelatos®. First, I'd like to say how in love I am with these little amazing sticks of color! You can seriously do anything with them.

I started off by stamping my image and then taking Acqua Dolce, Lavendar and Earl Grey Gelatos®. and mixed the colors up a little for my background.

LisaAdametz-WatercolorSpotlight-1

Hi everyone! It's Lisa with you today and I'm sharing a card that I created for one of my other creative teams.  Here's the thing, though, the entire piece is watercolored using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. Even the black and white. Yep! So, it's an awesome piece to share here, too. :)

 This card took a little bit of time to create, but was VERY easy to create.

PinkOctRose-LisaAdametz

Hi there crafty friends! It's Lisa here with you this Tuesday and I have a special card for you in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I know far too many women who have been affected by this horrible disease. So with my card today I wanted to show my support for all of my friends who have battled breast cancer -- no matter what stage they're in - early stages, remission, even cancer free. 

Here's how I made the card:

Blog Hop with Unity! Day 4 with Tiffany

10413330_594249277351752_3071880075318103672_n (1)

Hello Blogosphere! Welcome to Day 4 of the Unity Stamps and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog Hop!  It's Tiffany here and I thought I'd show you a timeless Faux Leather Technique with Gelatos and how I used that super cute Boots, Class and Sass Itty Bitty stamp set from Unity!

TiffUnityMain

You'll need the following supplies for this tutorial:

TiffUnityStep1

1. For a Faux Leather look, color an A2 card base with various earth-toned gelatos (cinnamon, iced chai, butterscotch).

TiffUnityStep2

2. Blend with a wet paintbrush. 

TiffUnityStep3

3. Spray with water and ball it up to create wrinkles. The water makes the paper more pliable!

TiffUnityStep4

4. Flatten the balled up paper, allow to dry, and then apply some chocolate Gelatos with a foam wedge onto the wrinkles! EASY peasy!

TiffUnityCloseup

Stitching adds that extra fabric charm to your Faux Leather panel!  I had so much fun designing with Unity Stamp Co. & hope you enjoyed this short Faux Leather Tutorial!

Thanks for hopping by,

Blog Hop with Unity Stamps! Day 3 with Rita Barakat

10413330_594249277351752_3071880075318103672_n

 Welcome to Day three of the Unity Stamps and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog Hop!  Rita Barakat  here and I thought I'd show you a fun way to use the same stamp three different ways!  Each day we’ll post a new project on our blogs so come back and leave a comment to be entered in our $50 product giveaway! For extra entries, leave a comment on our Facebook page HERE.

RitaBarakat.com2 I received this sweet girl stamp called "Every breath", I love that stand alone she can easily become a work of art by using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and a little water.

RitaBarakat.com3 Here she is again, now with the added sentiment and sparkly stars thanks some Glass Bead Glitter Gel and  a star stencil (TCW). I used a little foam tape to pop up the sentiment but worked it right into the design. I also layered her dress - stamping it twice, cutting it out and using foam tape. I used  Gelatos®Colors and a very small paint brush for this piece.

RitaBarakat.com4 Bonus picture, so you can really see the Glass Bead Glitter Gel.  

RitaBarakat.com1 And for the minimalist, a simple mat frame will do. I colored this one with Gelatos®Colors and PITT® Artist Pens and added a digital sentiment. I hope that gives you some ideas for using these products!

Blessings!
Rita
