I love to give tags to friends and family and I love having little reminders that inspire me in my studio so the paper from Graphic 45 was perfect! Check out the process.


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.


Fussy cut your favorite image/saying


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.


Materials Used:

G45 - Cling Stamps, Ornate Metal Label Holder, Typography Collection Journey #4500772, Old Curiosity Collection Parlour Wall 4500429

For this project, I used Graphic 45's ATC Box in Kraft and created a little steampunk art box. 

JenMatottGraphic45 - 7

The lid is covered with paper from the Topography line in Journey.   I loved the dictionary text on this paper with the slightly aged appearance!  Right up my alley!

JenMatottGraphic45 - 23The butterfly was layered on the lid but it's actually a Gel Medium skin transfer!  Here's how you do it:

1. Coat your toner-based image (photocopy, laser print or magazine image) with a generous even layer of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium.  Brush in one direction.  Allow to dry completely. Then, layer on another generous layer going the opposite direction.  Repeat for the 3rd layer and allow to dry completely. 

JenMatottGraphic45 - 1
Once completely dry, you are going to spray water onto the back of the paper.  Allow to saturate and then slowly use your finger to rub the pulp off.

I tried to get as much pulp off as a could but it does leave a dull haze when dry so I added a layer of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Glaze to the image side.  Once dry, it gives it a nice soft sheen and hides the pulp fibers!

JenMatottGraphic45 - 6

Using the Steampunk Gelatos colors, I colored on of the tags that comes in the box.  I used it as a layering piece.

JenMatottGraphic45 - 8

I layered the tag, over one end of the ribbon on the lid, then the cut out frame from the Gilded Lily Ephemera card pack and then the butterfly.  I cut a question mark from the Journey paper and layered the metal keyhole on top.  The keyhole was colored with Iced Coffee to match the Claw Feet.

JenMatottGraphic45 - 11

I used a Mixed Media Stencil in brick from the 10 ct. 101 Mixed Media Stencil pack 
and some Whipped Spackle through the brick stencil.  I did this to all 3 sides.

JenMatottGraphic45 - 9

Adding Steampunk Gelatos® Colors with lots of water created this drip effect.

JenMatottGraphic45 - 15

Finally, I colored the inside of the lid with the same Steampunk set and stamped using a Stamper's Big Brush Pen in black and the Topography 1 stamp set. 

JenMatottGraphic45 - 19

Inside the box is a pillow of velvet fabric and a nest with metal wings to complete the Steampunk feel.

Mixed Media Fairy on Wood by Sylwia Gryczuk



Hello Arty Souls! Sylwia (TandiArt) here with my first project as a Guest Designer:) I am so excited to be here, as products of  Faber Castel Design Memory Craft® are just 'must have' for every artist and crafter:)

So for this first project I decided to make my favourite Fairy-Girl. She was inspired by my little babygirl, whose afro-hair is just unmanageable :D

I wanted to show you how to work with Faber- Castell Design Memory Craft ® Gelatos® and Chalk Board Paint on row wood. They all work great on this surface! Creamy consistency of Gelatos makes it very easy to spread them even  on unprimed wood.


I have also video tutorial for you:


Firstly I applied a Black Chalk Board Paint with a brush.


Then I added Pistaccio, Orange Soda, Limoncello and Passion Fruit Gelatos® from Mix and Match Set Gelatos® Designer Colors- BALI 




I also used  Gelatos® with Stencils set 201

To add more dimension to my piece, I added Texture Gems™ Ice 



I used following products of Faber-Castell Design memory Craft:

Chalkboard Paint

 Limoncello Gelatos® 

Orange Soda Gelatos® 

 Passion Fruit Gelatos®

 Pistachio Gelatos®

 Chocolate Gelatos®

Texture Gems™ Ice

Stamper's Big White Pen

Mixed Media Stencils 10ct 201 Collection


Mechanical Pencil 0.35mm

I hope you enjoyed the projects and got inspired!

Canvas Corps Blog Hop Day 3 - Tiffany


Hi everyone and welcome to day one of the Blog Hop with Canvas Corp! To win Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft's $50 prize, comment below each day this week.  One random winner will be selected on April 20th.  

Hey Blogosphere, it's Tiffany for Day 3 of our Blog Hop with Canvas Corp and today I'm showcasing the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® product line with an 8 x 10 Stretched Natural Canvas. I definitely went out of my comfort zone to create on such a large-to-me surface, but I had fun! What matches more perfectly with a Cityscape Canvas than the Manhattan Gelatos®? Nothing, right? Oh, I usually create Video Tutorials, but decided to make a Photo Tutorial for you:


1. Create a Cityscape Mask from cardstock & then dab Gel Medium through the Brick Background Stencil (Stencils 10ct 201 Collection) using a foam brush. Allow to dry.

2. Color background with the Gelatos® Designer Colors - Manhattan

3. Blend with a wet brush & then dab away the excess color with a towel to reveal the Gel Medium resist.

4. Trace Cityscape Mask outline using an Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencil (black).



5. Paint Cityscape with Chalk Board Paint medium.

6. Paint windows with Gesso medium. Allow to dry.



7. Dab Texture Luxe™ Gold through Key & Fleur Di Lis Stencils (Stencils 10ct 201 Collection) using a foam dauber. Dab a little throughout the canvas to add more texture as well. Allow to dry.

8. Paint "home" with Chalk Board Paint medium onto the key with a fine paintbrush.

9. Splatter Chalk Board Paint medium across finished canvas & add some to the upper-left corner. Spray with a mini-mister (Essentials Tool Set) of water to all drips.  Allow to dry & then add embellishments!




I hope you enjoyed this photo tutorial & much as I enjoyed working with the Canvas Corps 8 x 10 Stretched Natural Canvas!

Thanks for hopping by,

Come on Spring! Tag by Jen Matott

Does it feel like Spring might never come to anyone else? It has snowed in Central New York for a month with 3-4 feet on the ground (actually up to my windows) and the air so cold it hurts to breathe when you step outside!  I am so ready for a warm up!  So to brighten my cold, dreary, winter day, I made a spring tag with some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® media and UmWow Studio lovelies. 

 I needed some gorgeous color so after priming the chip with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso, I added a rainbow of Gelatos® colors to the tag.  Gorgeous!

All the products are "Mix & Match", which means they are designed to work together!!!!! Actually, their tagline is "mix mediums with matching color palettes to creative with confidence." And it's true. Today's cards features: Gelatos®, Stamper's Big Brush Pens and Whipped Spackle. All the exact supplies I used are listed at the end of this post.
