Hi everyone! It's Lisa here with you today and I have a cool mixed media canvas to share with you that would be perfect as a gift for your neighbor, friend, or co-worker. I really hope that you like it. I took a LOT of photos, so let's get started!
1. This is a 8 x 10" pre-gessoed canvas that was turned on the long side. A piece of patterned paper was cut to size (the edges were torn just a little) and adhered to the canvas using Gel Medium.

Hi everyone! Margie Higuchi here. Today, I’d like to show how I repurposed a mint tin by using many wonderful Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products! I love how the colors and mediums mix and match to make it SO EASY to create!
First we need to prep the tin by sanding the surface and then applying Gesso. I put two coats on with dry time in between coats.

Hi friends! I had the best time creating this and I'm going to tell you just how I did it but first I have to point out the orange/yellow highlights on the main part of the acorn. I LOVE that! It's as simple as pie! Simply highlight parts of your project using Paper Crafter Crayons before painting. Yep. That's awesome. It withstood paint AND Gesso and it still shines on. YAY!

Hi everyone, Mou here and welcome to the fourth 'Take the Challenge' of 2013!
I feel that creative challenges help us experiment and learn new things. Challenges can help us get unstuck from creative ruts. They can also inspire us to create in ways we would not have thought of otherwise. So, I decided to take a few creative challenges myself and thought you might like to play along.
Every month, on the first Monday (April turns out to be an exception as we had a blog hop starting on 4/1 and so, challenge starts today April 8th), 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. The following Monday, we will pick TWO winners randomly from among the readers who participated in that week's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
Today I have a challenge and an announcement for you. Let's start with the challenge.
Today's challenge is about making something new from something used or old.
April is Earth month and I feel that upcycling something creatively might show a little bit of our love for our beautiful planet.
So here's my take: a journal spread using an old book and some security envelopes we got in the mail, and of course, some of my favorite Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products.
