Magic - Alphabet background with Gelatos® Brights kit by Valerie Ouellet

Fotor_143733008812874

For my second project, I used Gelatos® 15 colors Brights kit. I particularly like those kit because I love neon color. You get some incredible effects when you mix neon with sepia or black and white photos.

First, I used my left over alphabet chipboards to build a background. I began by glueing my chipboards randomly. Then I applied Gesso. With a bit more heat, I made some texture while the gesso expanded.

Then, I coloured my alphabets with my Gelatos® (Passion Fruit, Red Cherry, Bubblegum) while playing with different colours to create a shading. To finish, I added water to complete my background.

1. First, I added Chalkboard Paint to the top and bottom portion of one of the tags from the Graphic 45 Tag Album.

2. Then, I mix 1 part Chalkboard Paint to 2 Parts Glaze blending with water until smoothie like consistency.

3. Adhere the Rare Oddities Patterned Papers on top of each other with Gel Medium.

4. Before completely dry, tear portions of the top layer of paper to reveal the bottom layer.

5. Add Drips of Chalkboard Paint mixture with a dropper tool.

6. The next step is easy, simply adhere die-cut apothecary bottles with Gel Medium.

7. Adhere the Graphic 45 Rare Oddities Chipboard to the bottles with Gel Medium & trim excess. 

8. Add a thick coat of Gel Medium around the Chipboard labels.

9. Now, this is when the magic happens. Heat Set the Gel Medium until it BUBBLES!!!! Yes, you WANT air bubbles! I loved discovering this happy mistake :)

10. Outline the bottles with a PITT Artist Pen Black (M).

11. Now, be brave and add some sort of handwritten sentiment on the tag with the Stamper's Artist Pen in White. I layered my sentiment with a Metallic PITT Artist Pen Gold. Now, you just have to adhere the finished Apothecary bottles to the finished tag!

So what do you think?! I cannot wait to add this finished tag to a bottle of wine for a host gift!

Thanks for hopping by,

Ann Corbiere-Scott's Bloom Art Journal page featuring Aquarelle water color pencils

IMG_6706

Hi, Ann Corbiere-Scott here and I am over the moon to be a little part of the most amazing company, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®! I am thrilled to share some Art GRIP® Aquarelle watercolor pencil artsy fun with you!  I love art journaling, I have oodles of them!  I find them a excellent way to try out new techniques and products, coupled with a positive message is absolutely perfection to me! 

Here we go! I am madly in love with the mini Mixed Media journal, so I took a page from mine and jumped right in!

1. I adhered a vintage book paper page onto the mixed media journal page with Gel Medium.

IMG_6676  IMG_6677

2. I painted a thin layer of Chalkboard paint over the book paper, I wanted to be able to slightly see the words through the paint. 

IMG_6690

3. On another sheet of book paper, I loosely drew some organic flowers and leaves with Art GRIP Aquarelle water color pencils (I used 168 for the leaves and 117,121,111, 107, 152, 125, 162, and 156 for flowers). With a wet brush, activate the watercolor to create loose, flowy flower and leaf shapes.

IMG_6686

4. With an XS PITT® Artist Pen, randomly scribble draw flower and leaf outlines around painted shapes.

IMG_6688

5. Cut out and adhere in a frame like shape, with Gel Medium, taking a moment to layer and tuck pieces under others for lots of visual interest and depth. ( here's a trick I use-before I adhere it all down, I play with placement of all of the bits and pieces. Once I have a layout I really like, I take a photo with my cell phone, then I have a visual reminder to work from when adhering!)

IMG_6702

6. Lastly, I wrote the word bloom with a pencil onto the open chalkboard space. Next, I traced over the pencil lines with the silver (251) pencil. To add depth to your handwritten letters, widen the down strokes. Fill in the open down stroke spaces with the silver pencil. Go over the outer lines of each letter with a Silver (251) PITT artist pen 1,5 and add a few coordinating colored enamel dots for a bit more dimension.

Supplies used

  • Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils (green 168 for leaves,red/ orange 117, red 121, orange 111, yellow 107,blue 152, purple 125, green 162, teal 156, silver 251 for lettering)
  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Gel Medium
  • PITT® Artist Pen(s) XS black 199 and silver 251
  • mini Mixed Media Journal
  • vintage book paper 
  • Doodlebug Sprinkles enamel dots

Art Journaling Week 3 with Jen

Art Journaling Banner 3Welcome back to another week of sharing our journals with you!  We are embellishing this week. I started to go through my hundreds of photos from my trip to Italy in 2011.  I picked some of my favorites. Those that have a story to tell or that represent my trip best.  Adding color, textures, and words was next.

JenMatottJOurnal - 1 (2)I drew some on the Chalk Board Painted circle with a Stamper's Big White Pen, Metallic PITT Artist Pen in Silver, and an Art Grip White Colored Pencil.  I added a title "Italy" with the Stamper's Big White Pen.

JenMatottJOurnal - 2 (2)
Then, I used another Stampendous stamp and a Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Chrome Yellow to stamp some text.

JenMatottJOurnal - 3 (2)

JenMatottJOurnal - 4 (2)

I used our new Texture Gems™ in Gold to embellish a bit and create some sparkle to my title area. They look like little gold gems and stay puffy when dry!

On to my next page in my journal book...  I used the Paper Crafter Crayons™ in an assortment of colors from all three color sets to shade the bricks in.  I layered colors for a fun look.

JenMatottJOurnal - 6 (2)

JenMatottJOurnal - 7 (2)

Then, I used our Chalk Board Paint to splatter on the page with our stipple brush from the Gelatos Tool Set.  

JenMatottJOurnal - 8 (2)

I added a photo and some word strips using the Gel Medium as an adhesive and top coat (to the word stickers only).

JenMatottJOurnal - 1 (1)

JenMatottJOurnal - 3 (1)

I also added the title puffy stickers with Gel Medium too.  I wanted to ensure they would on fall off later!  This stuff holds it's ground!

Next up, is another page using Gelatos® colors from the Pastels set. I used my finger to blend the colors over the collaged background.

JenMatottJOurnal - 6 (1)

Adding some Texture Luxe in Gold with a sponge applicator through a stencil (101 Collection)  creates the perfect embellished background for a page about Italy!

JenMatottJOurnal - 9 (1)

JenMatottJOurnal - 11 (1)

It picks up just the right amount of texture and leaves a very metallic shimmer to the page!

JenMatottJOurnal - 10 (1)

I did brush a light coat of Gel Medium over it in order to write smoothly with an Essential  PITT Artist Pen in small tip.

JenMatottJOurnal - 13 (1)

The last page I'm going to share with you, shows how I used the Metallic Gelatos® Colors wet over a Gel Medium stenciled background.

JenMatottJOurnal - 4 (1)

JenMatottJOurnal - 5 (1)

I was inspired by the colors and textures of Tuscany, Italy when I visited there and hope you enjoy my art that captures some of the beauty I saw on my trip.  Be sure to join me next Tuesday as I share my finished pages with you. Check back throughout this week to see how  Tiffany, Rita and Lisa are working on their art journals.

Limiting your color palette- Steampunk Colors

RitaBarakatSteampunkGelatosA100
Hey there Arsty peeps Rita Barakat here!  I am doing a little spotlight on Steampunk Gelatos®Colors. If you are ever stuck for ideas sometimes limiting your color palette can be a great way to challenge yourself! Especially if the colors are outside of your comfort zone! That's what I did here on this art journal page. By repeating layers of complementary colors you can get a lot of depth in your work and challenging your self is always a great way to grow!

A Halloween Chandelier with Mou & October Take the Challenge winners

Hi everyone, Mou here with Halloween home decor tutorial for you.

FCOctober2014Chandelier2_MouS

Do you ever shop in kid craft aisles? I do... some for my kids, especially my son who loves to paint things, but also for me. Don't always have a plan, but I pick up random things here and there. Such was the case of the Halloween chandelier.

FCOctober2014Chandelier_Step1_MouS

After sitting in a bin in my studio for at least a couple of years, it finally saw light of day. I found this chandelier at JoAnn. I altered it with the following supplies:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent: Chalkboard Paint

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent: Gesso

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent: Gel Medium

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent: Glass Bead Glitter Gel

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos Tool Set

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® colors: Gold Champagne, Iced Chai, Tangerine, Mango, Red Cherry, Blueberry, Cotton Candy, Metallic Mint

Others: punchinella, stencil, string

  FCOctober2014Chandelier_Step2_MouS

Start by adding a coat of Gesso to the chandelier pieces. Be sure to coat both the front and the back as you'll see all the sides when it's assembled and displayed.

  FCOctober2014Chandelier_Step3_MouS

Next, coat parts of the chandelier with chalkboard paint leaving out the candles and flames.

  FCOctober2014Chandelier_Step4_MouS

It should look something like this.

  FCOctober2014Chandelier_Step5_MouS

Color the candles with Gold Champagne and Iced Chai Gelatos® colors and blend with Gel Medium.

  FCOctober2014Chandelier_Step6_MouS

Color the flames with Mango, Tangerine and Red Cherry Gelatos® colors and blend with Gel Medium.

Add some dimension to the chandelier structure by rubbing on  Blueberry, Cotton Candy, Gold Champagne and Metallic Mint Gelatos® colors. Blend the colors with your fingers.

  FCOctober2014Chandelier_Step7_MouS

Lay a stencil over the chalkboard painted part of a chandelier piece and apply Glass Bead Glitter Gel with palette knife. Let dry thoroughly. Repeat on every surface of each chandelier piece.

When dry, lay a punchinella over some parts and color lightly with Iced Chai Gelatos® color.

  FCOctober2014Chandelier1_MouS

Assemble the pieces together and tie with string to display in a chosen spot.

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and now, it's time to announce the winners of October 2014 Take the Challenge with Mou.

Drumrolls please...
