Take the Challenge with Mou, July 2014

Hi everyone, Mou here  and welcome to the seventh Take The Challenge of 2014

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.

This month's challenge is to create something you don't usually create. It could be style, colors, theme, products, anything you don't create often.

For me, it's Steampunk. I like the look but don't try doing it myself. Here's my take:

In my project, I used - 

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso

Here are some close-ups of my page:

Calling all doodlers!

Feb 2014 018100 Calling all doodlers! Hey this is Rita Barakat and if you are still loving the chalkboard craze like me here are a few fun  & easy ideas to try! If you didn't know the White PITT Artist pen works great on the chalkboard painted surface!  If you are just trying it out you can do this on paper like I did and if you love it mount it on something else later with gel medium!

Feb 2014 019100 Now doodle away! Make a statement and grab your Metallic PITT® Artist Pens & PITT® Pastel Pencils - they all look great on the chalkboard paint! Here is my design!

Feb 2014 024100
I ended up mounting mine onto a piece of chipboard, punched some holes and hung it up! I told this was fun and easy! I am thinking this would be fun for a party, on the back of everyones chair? The could decorate it  themselves and it would be a fun keepsake! What would you do?

Mix & Match With Metallics

Snip

Hi! Jeanne Streiff here today!

I love the look of metallics on a neutral background. This look is very easy to achieve with Mix & Match products from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®! I found this old picture of my family and I thought it would be fun to do a single picture 8" x 8" vintage scrapbook page.

The little one is me... so I guess I'm a little vintage myself.
