Chalkboard Fun!

Lil-house-final2

Hi Faber-Castell Fans - Karen here again!!  I had SO much fun playing with the Faber-Castell Chalkboard Paint and PITT® Pastel Pencils -  it was one of those projects that just worked from the start and I loved the finish!

My first thought was to create the house with just the PITT® Pastel Pencils because they work SO well on the chalkboard paint, but I thought I would mix it up and add some paper to the mix!!

'Flowers' a canvas...

Final pic wm

Hello everyone!  Krista here again showing you another fun project you can do using some Gelatos®, Stampers Big Brush Pens and Textural Accents.  I've got a little video-slideshow-tutorial on how I created this 6" x 12" canvas. 

 

This canvas was super fun (and fast) to make.  I used lots of Gelatos® and Stampers Big Brush Pens.  If you've never tried Gelatos® before you MUST!  They are my fav, my go to, my can't live without...lol.  They blend effortlessly with or without water, are compact, highly pigmented acid free color sticks that glide on creamy smooth (just like butter) for maximum color and coverage.  And the Brush Pens always finish things off beautifully.  These pens are all lightfast India Ink and have a durable brush nib for a multitude of uses!  I would be lost without them!  :)

Anyway, hoping this project brightens your day and puts a little glimmer of hope that spring is just around the corner!  

Enjoy your day! ~Krista van Tol

Take the Challenge with Mou, March 2014

Hi everyone, Mou here and welcome to the third 'Take the Challenge' of 2014! 

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners randomly from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
 
We are in the last month of the first quarter of 2014...already! I'm already starting to re-evaluate some of the things that I planned for this year -- what to keep, what to set aside for now, what to drop, etc. And one core theme that's guiding my thought process significantly is satisfaction -- that of doing a job well, living up to my own expectations, meeting standards, etc. and above all feeling fulfilled in what I do, how I do it, who I do it with and for, and why I do it. When those pieces fit, I stay motivated, curious, and creative. I find that the greatest everyday motivator for me is loving what I do and wanting to do more of it. So, my motto is "Do what you love, love what you do." 
 
What's your motto? Show us any project that captures the essence of your motto.
