Hi Artsy Friends! It's always fun to share a journal page that I have worked on with you! I am doing a sort of "round robin" journal swap with fellow art teachers in my school district and this page was one of them using lots of stencils and layers. I wanted to try some different materials together and use different techniques.
Today I'm thrilled to share a coloring book project using Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® to create a dimensional wall hanging perfect for any room with imagination (ie. kid's room, college student dorm room or my craft room! LOL!). My project is placed on the fireplace mantel...for now :)
I started coloring with my watercolor brush using Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® in Green Tea, Margarita Mix, Watermelon, Lemon, Raspberry, Metallic Melon and Snow Cone. The Collapsible Water Cup filled with water and my palette was my acrylic stamp block made my coloring go fast.
Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying the spring weather :) Today I am combining spring flowers and upcoming Mother's Day in this sweet embossed mini bag.
Hi everyone! Carisa here with you today sharing some more fun with the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Paper Flowers Kit. This is such a fun kit with everything you need to get started making your own beautiful watercolor handmade flowers. You get four gorgeous Gelatos® Colors in Metallic Melon, Lemon, Snow Cone and Metallic Grape. I pulled out some additional colors to make a bright, spring inspired mixed media hoop art canvas.
Hi Artsy friends! Jen here with another of my shoe creations! I love altering shoes to wear with my basic outfits. I always feel great wearing something that I created and something that is one of a kind. These shoes were purchased a local large store and were canvas. Perfect for altering with Gelatos® colors! I used Margarita Mix, Metallic Mint, Snow Cone, Lemon, Mango, and Passion Fruit for these shoes.
I have been working in an art journal lately with other art teachers. We trade journals every month and create a page that explores techniques, images, ideas and lessons that we are inspired by for our students. Our hope was that we might have a collection of professional art, ideas and lessons in which to share at the end of the year. So, for this page, I was exploring some pen drawing and areas of color using Gelatos® watered down as well as splattered on. As an Art educator and artist, I like working out ideas in a journal so that I can possibly use them on a full sized canvas or paper.

When I got these products, I immediately thought of Frida Kahlo with that image on the stamp. Frida was an amazing female Mexican artist in the 1940's-1950's. She used her heart and soul in every artwork she created and you can see the story of her life in her work! She went through so many tragic and painful experiences but didn't let that affect her ability to make art. In fact, it was therapy for her!
