Holidays

Cool 4th of July Monogram Art

Door

Home Décor with Gelatos

Hello Loves.  So glad to be here with you as part of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Team.  Very grateful for this opportunity to create and share with you.  

It’s summer and many of us are all gearing up for a fun and festive 4th of July.  One of my favorite things for the holidays and seasons is to create something fun to hang on our door.  I love seeing what my neighbors do and have to join the fun with my own little handmade creation.  This time I decided on our last name initial.  How cool is that!  It’s quick and easy.  Here’s how you too can make your own!

Gather your supplies

Supplies

Cover letter with Gesso.  

Gesso

Use washi tape to create section lines, to allow for painting straight lines.

Use Gelatos® Boysenberry to cover top right, activate with water, spread using finger or paint brush.  I used my finger. Add Gelatos® Double Scoop®  Red Cherry to create red strips and use Gelatos® Iced Coffee to smudge in various spots to create an aged look. 

Stripes added

Punch out stars and cover with Glass Bead Glitter Gel.  Allow to dry and then adhere using Gel Medium.  Set aside to dry. 

Stars

Use Gelatos® Boysenberry and Gelatos® Double Scoop®  Red Cherry to color string.  Color on and rub in with fingers. This step is messy, have baby wipes handy for cleaning hands. 

Use Mixed Media Stencils, Scandinavian to create bird and color using Gelatos® Boysenberry, Metallic Grape and Snow cone.  Cut out bird.  Outline using a Black Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen, or here I used the Polychromos black pencil.

String and bird
 

Wrap string around top right and tie bow. 

Use Gel Medium to adhere bird bottom left.

  Bird and string added

Use Mixed Media Stencils, Scandinavian to add flower by spreading  Texture Luxe™  in Gold over stencil to create sparkle and dimension.  Adhere string from bird beak to flower using Gel Medium. 

Finish off by adding dots using Texture Gems™ in gold. 

Protect by covering with Glaze or Gel Medium.

Done

Snowy Woods New Year's Card

New Year's Card
Who didn't get a chance to send out Christmas cards this year? Me either. But we still have time to send greetings to our loved ones by sending out New Year Greeting Cards! And this simple technique for creating the look of birch trees in a snowy woods is the perfect project to create unique, homemade cards. Of course, if you miss the New Year mailing deadline, these note cards would also work for Winter stationery. Maybe even Holiday Thank You cards?

RitaBarakatMixedMediaArt
Hey there artsy peeps Rita Barakat here today! If you missed last weeks posts you might want to go and check it out. With holidays around the corner this is a great time to get creative about last minute gift wrapping ideas and we shared a lot last week! After all of that I was thinking how about those of you who say you have no time to get creative this season? Why not do a little double duty and get creative with your gift wrapping! I don't mean fancy ribbons or bows either!  I bet you thought this was a canvas? Nope it is a gift box! A 5x7, 3/4 inch deep gift box I "decorated" with my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products! You can create little works of art too and personalize them for the person who will be receiving this gift! It's easy, quick and I know you already have the supplies! Let's get started!
