Hello my crafty friends! Linsey here today sharing my last guest designer post for this incredible company Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®. I've enjoyed my time with you all so very much and thank you for the amazing experience! Now, on to my project! I was inspired by a children's construction paper craft I saw on the internet 2 years ago and decided this was the perfect occasion to finally try it myself. My translation is this 9x11 mixed media canvas panel that definitely cured my early winter blues!
I really loved creating this one and here's how it came together. I started by laying down 6 shades of Gelatos® on watercolor paper then spritzed with water and blended with my fingers. This will be the bird.
Hey everyone, Lisa with you today and I have a fun minimalist mixed media Valentine card to share. Most people tend to think that with mixed media it's all about tons and tons of layers, right? Well, with this card I really wanted to try to try to keep it as simple as possible BUT also showcase some of our amazing products without making the card super thick. This card isn't hard to make at all and is FLAT! So no extra postage!! Woohoo!
Hi! Dana Tatar here today sharing a set of chalkboard valentines. I started this project with a set of wood veneer hearts and used Chalkboard Paint, a Stamper's Big Brush Pen and PITT®Artist Pens to add color. I added dimensional metallic accents with the NEW Texture Gems. These valentines are quick and easy to create and fun to personalize!
Hi everyone! Lisa here with you today. And I'm happy to be back after being gone at CHA. It's always so fun to be there showing all the exciting new products for everyone, but it sure is awesome to be home.
So, now that I'm home I thought it would be fun to share a few of the new products with YOU! Just a little card, but it will give you an idea of what you have to look forward to. :)
Hi crafty friends! It's Lisa here with you today and even though it's only January I DO believe that love is in the air so I made this "Love" tag with some non-traditional colors and other fun elements.
Here is how I made it:
1 - Cut a piece of chipboard to #10 tag size. (8 ½"L x 4 ⅛" W)
2 - Coat chipboard tag with layer of Gesso. No need to be neat.
3 - Rub Gold Champage Gelato® Double Scoop® from edge towards center using fingers.
I put together a video to show you the full process of making this. If you're having trouble playing the video in this post, please click here to watch the video directly.
Happy New Year to all of you! I wish you a wonderful and artsy 2015! To ring in the new year I'm trying something NEW with my Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®! I used my Gelatos® Double Scoop® to stamp and watercolor to create a small art print.
