New Bird & Winter Trees

Winterbird24 (2)

Hello my crafty friends! Linsey here today sharing my last guest designer post for this incredible company Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®. I've enjoyed my time with you all so very much and thank you for the amazing experience! Now, on to my project! I was inspired by a children's construction paper craft I saw on the internet 2 years ago and decided this was the perfect occasion to finally try it myself.  My translation is this 9x11 mixed media canvas panel that definitely cured my early winter blues!

I really loved creating this one and here's how it came together. I started by laying down 6 shades of Gelatos® on watercolor paper then spritzed with water and blended with my fingers. This will be the bird.

Minimalist Valentine Card

LisaAdametz-MinimalistHeart-1

Hey everyone, Lisa with you today and I have a fun minimalist mixed media Valentine card to share.  Most people tend to think that with mixed media it's all about tons and tons of layers, right? Well, with this card I really wanted to try to try to keep it as simple as possible BUT also showcase some of our amazing products without making the card super thick. This card isn't hard to make at all and is FLAT! So no extra postage!! Woohoo!

Dark Night with Limor Webber

IMG_9820

Hi Everyone! It's Limor Webber here with a quick project share ;).

Can you guess the only medium that I used to create this canvas board?

If you said Gelatos® then you are correct!

I used nothing but Gelatos to create this piece as I wanted to challenge myself.  I find myself always trying to add more instead of using the mediums I have so I set out to create this piece just with Gelatos.

A CHA Scrapbook by Mahe Zehra

Small 18

Hello everyone! It is with great sadness that I am writing this - my last blog post - as part of the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® mguest design team. It has been such an awesome three months! I have met some amazing artists and learnt so much from them. I have discovered the true potential of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products as I have tried to push their boundries as well as my own. It has been a great learning experience and I am so glad I got to do this!

Earlier this month I was fortunate enough to go to CHA - The Craft and Hobby Association mega show. The show is full of inspiration with arts and crafts manafacturers coming from all over theworld to showcase their products. There are also many workshops to learn from and the topics range from business to creating art to getting published in magazines.

 Happy New Year everyone!!  I hope your start of 2015 has been a great one so far!  One final post from me before this design term is up!  I created a cover for a mixed media journal.  The word 'Inspire' has to be one of my favourite words!  I am always inspired by art, and others so it was fitting to have it on the front of this journal cover.  

Here's a little rundown of how it came to be...

Miniature Heart Garland with DeeDee Catron

DeeDee Catron - Mini Heart Garland

Hi everyone! DeeDee here today.. for my REAL last post. I can't believe I made that mistake, thinking the last post I did for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft was my last. That's okay though! I get to show you one more fun technique that's a favorite of mine! Today I turned the technique into this cute miniature heart garland.

We're going to go through this tutorial in video format, so please join me to see just how I created this garland: 

 

 

Great watercolor effect, no? And I just love how you can use the Big Brush Pens, dry them, and then keep adding color on top, like the Gelatos!
