Hello Everyone!!! It's Tiffany here and I've started a fun series of Video Tutorials featuring our new Textural Accent medium, Chalkboard Paint! The series, Chalkboard Entertaining, shows various ways a clever crafter like yourself can apply chalkboard paint to the art of entertaining and decorating! It's amazing how all of the other Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® mediums work with this trendy paint!
First up, I'll be showing you how to jazz up your drinkware:
I hope you enjoyed this week's installment of Chalkboard Entertaining! Stay tuned for more episodes in February!
Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here with another video tutorial for ya! This is a project I created and taught for The Crafter's Home Workshop at Winter CHA in Anaheim last week! It's the perfect keepsake for Birthday Parties!
In the video, you'll see how to use the new Textural Accents, including Whipped Spackle, Glass Bead Glitter Gel, and Chalkboard Paint! Of course, you'll be able to use your beloved Gelatos® with this project as well- promise!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I've inspired you to look into our new Textural Accents :)
A challenge was issued to create a gift item for $5 or under! I can't turn down a good challenge so I dug up items that I already had: scraps of canvas, stamps, beads, and a bit of lace. The result was a pair of artistic bracelet cuffs. One for me to keep and one to give! That's a win-win gift if you ask me!
December is fast approaching! and before we know it, Christmas will be here! With that in mind, I went to town with altering this old iPad cover that I had stowed in my stash of alterables that I've been hoarding :) This cover was altered to hold wish cards for this Christmas and New Year. It can also be used to store advise cards or even to just store away the pretty things you will receive this festive season.
Here's my altered cover and a guide on how I made it look the way it does.
It's Linda here! I know, I know, it's only JUST October and I'm already talking about Christmas but trust me, it'll be here before we know it! If every other year is anything to go by, I'll be freaking out around December 20th because I have ZERO cards made so I thought I'd get started early :)
Today I thought I'd show you some cards that demonstrate how well Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products (specifically Gelatos ®) can work for simpler crafting projects. For those of you who aren't 'into' mixed media or canvasses, altered items etc, today's post is for you :)
Greetings! Margie here to share my first guest design team project with you! I had a hatpin needing color and function so why not create a charm for a bracelet?
I used a number of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products to “Mix & Match” different colors and mediums. To color my silver hatpin, I scraped a little of Metallic Grape Gelatos® with the Palette Knife from the Gelatos Tool Set into a disposable bowl. Then added about a tablespoon of Gesso and blended to a beautiful color. Brush the tinted Gesso onto the hatpin - I used two layers with dry time in between.
