Hi everyone! It's Lisa with you and it's my turn on the blog to share my craft for our Wearable Crafts Week. Have you been enjoying the projects so far? So fun, right?
I have a super awesome tote bag to share with you today. I currently live in California and bags like these are an absolute necessity! We have a plastic bag ban, so you NEED a nice roomy bag like this to take shopping with you. And customizing it just makes it so much more personal. Who wants a bag that looks like everyone else's? Not this gal!!
I love that this bag already had the gold accents on it. It made it so fun to run with that idea.

Hi! It's Jen Matott here and I have an adorable wearable art clutch purse to share with you today! I love getting dressed up and going out on the town and having your handmade accessories creates "Wow" factor in style! This week the New York State Fair is opening which means the end of summer and beginning of Fall. I entered Fine Art works and crafts into the competition and won 7 awards! They have an art reception to see the work before the general public does. So, I went with a couple of my friends and wanted to wear something fabulous as an exhibiting artist! This little purse was perfect!
The clutch purse was a sort of canvas like material and has a leopard print inside lining. It needed more color!

Hey there Crafty Peeps Rita Barakat here today. In my travels I have met a lot of ladies that have interesting jewelry. I especially love the ones that people make themselves. I thought it would be fun to make a little bracelet and right now natural accents are still very popular.So I thought I would take a stab at it and make my own! This is how it turned out!

I like to create colorful layouts and I love the colors of the new Gelatos® Bright kit.
For this project, I would like to show you a technique to create a watercolor background very easily with Gelatos®.
First, prepare your scrapbook sheet with Gesso and dry it with the heatgun. You can now start applying your Gelatos®. After this step, spray water on your works.

Zoey's here today with a quick and easy art journal page. The inspiration for this art journal page I had it from the quote "home is where your heart is"...quickly changed in "Home is forever".
I love using Mini Journal Boards as the base of my art journal pages, they are ready to work on, but I like to add a really thin layer of Gesso before starting to add any other mediums.
I grabbed few colors from the brand new Gelatos® Colors BRIGHTS , I scribbled the Gelatos® and then I blended everything with a baby wipe. I love how smooth are the Gelatos® on Gesso!

I really love to make pages in my art journal. To me it's a fun way to try out new techniques, products or just play a bit without the need for it to be perfect. And if something goes wrong there's always Gesso to cover everything up and start over again. This time I was in the mood to make something soft and calm instead of bright and colorful as I usually do. Here's how I made my page.

Hello creative friends, it's Marjolaine Walker here and I'm back with the second part of my mini mixed media art journal. Since I'm inspired by people who are true to themselves, I decided to expand on the words that I had on the other six pages of my journal. Be brave, kind, honest, bold, amazing and REAL! This time I experimented with something new, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products with a gel printing plate. It was a lot of fun seeing what worked and what didn't and I hope you will try it for yourself. I mixed and matched some Gelatos®, Texture Luxe™ and Chalk Board Paint and finished it off with Pitt Artist Big Brush Pens which are permanent, light fast, acid free and archival. I recorded the process so you could see, I hope you enjoy the video!
