Stenciled Negative Background

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here today with another way to use those Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils with the new Mixed Media Stencils! I love the new Mixed Media Stencils because they come in a variety of patterns at an affordable price! They're also disposable, but with a coat of glaze you can prolong their life & usability! Pretty neat, right?

I hope you're inspired to try this SUPER EASY technique on your own!

Custom Stencil Art YOU can do!

TiffGlassesTrioMain

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here with a short picture tutorial for you! I adore the Sunglasses/Mustaches stencil from the Mixed Media Stencils 10ct 201 Collection, but was stumped as to how to incorporate it into my every day crafting! Then a lightbulb went off in my head & I remembered seeing a cool watercolor print on Pinterest featuring simply drawn sunglasses that were watercolored!

First, I started experimenting with the various frame options on watercolor paper. Then I doodled the details with a PITT Artist Pen (black, M). Mixing our mediums is one of my favorite things to do, so next I added color with my Gelatos® and details with my Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. The only thing left to do was to frame it or add it to a card! You could even use it for a pocket scrapbooking page! 

I absolutely love the results & hope this encourages you to use the Mixed Media Stencils with the PITT Artist Pens to create custom art!

Cut white cardstock in 3 different sizes to fit on top of each other.

using the G45 Stamp Set I used the Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pen to stamp all over the larger piece of white cardstock.

Cut a mat for the middle white cardstock from the typography paper line.

Repeat step using Stamper's Big Brush pen and stamp set for the middle piece and top piece, choose your favorite stamps from the set.

place all cards on top of each other using 3D foam and with a stencil and whipped spackle apply some texture in random spots on top of the tag as shown.

Apply some gelatos on the top of the tag using the Steam Punk Collection and spray with water as shown below to allow them to run and become a watercolor effect.

Last but not least, use a Pitt Artist pen to create faux stitch lines around the tag for some interest.

Last step is to assemble card including some metal findings from Graphic 45.

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.
