Texture Art with Jen

P1020392It is no secret that I love texture AND color!  I can't get enough of bright, gorgeous color and patterns and textures.  This project has both in large doses!   I started this project while I was at the Faber-Castell headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio!  I had it sitting on my desk just waiting for the final finishing touches to make it complete.  Finally, I gave it more texture and some fun embellishments and I'm thrilled with the result!

P1020399I used my favorite colored Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Double Scoop Gelatos® in Snow Cone, Mango, Lemon, Metallic Mint, and Margarita! 

P1020396I added Whipped Spackle through a stencil and also splattered and stamped with bubble wrap using some Chalkboard Paint.

P1020394This gorgeous butterfly is from UmWowStudios and used WOW Embossing powder on it!  I layered more chipboard to create a fun finishing touch.

P1020397More bubble wrap stamped in some Whipped Spackle after being put through a stencil.  I just adore bubble wrap as a texture tool.  The edge of the wood plaque was painted with Chalkboard Paint.  I love the contrast between the colors and the black edge.

I love when I finally finish a project that I start months ago ...it's very satisfying and deserves a celebration!

Thanks for letting me share this piece of art!

Another Wearable Art necklace with Jen Matott

P1010802So last month I created a necklace with ComposiMold and the Mixed Media with Gelatos kit!  I loved it so much that I made another wearable art piece.  This time I used an UmWowStudio Hexagon Background die cut piece, canvas, and the Steampunk Gelatos® set.

Here are some step outs from my creation!

Wish by Terri Burnette

Good morning everyone.  Today I want to share a mixed media project with you.  I wanted to make a little canvas to help me remember that wishes do come true.  So, on to the project.

Here is the final project:  

DSC_0016

 

I began with an 8 x 8 burlap canvas board.  I knew I wanted 3 areas to work on so I began with the backgrounds of each of the boards.  Using my Black Stamper's Big Brush Pen I swiped the ink over my stamp and stamped onto white tissue paper.  I continued until I had the design I wanted.  I love using my Stamper's Big Brush Pen to stamp.  The india ink is permanent and it is so easy!  Each of my 3 areas was stamped with a different background stamp.

DSC_0001

 

I have already decided that I would use 3 mini canvas' on the main 8 x 8 until I made the unfortunate discovery that I didn't have any mini canvas' in my stash!  So, I improvised.  I cut chipboard that I had so that I had several of the sizes I wanted to use and then glued them together.  I then adhered the stamped tissue paper to the chipboard stacks using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gel Medium.  I also gave the tops a coat as well.

Once the Gel Medium was dry, I gave a light coat of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gesso to each board to lighten the patterns and give a base for the color to grab onto. I also applied Gesso to the wood elements I will add to the page later.

At this point I decided to add a "frame" of Gesso around the area where the boards will be placed on the canvas.

Now, time for the color.  For the first coat I scribbled on Gelatos® Double Scoop® Metallic Mint.  I used my finger to get the color distributed all over the board and sides.

Next, I added Gelatos® Blueberry just along the edges and smoothed with my fingers.

And last, Gelatos® Iced Chai for the edges to give them a little distressed look.  I love how the metallics in these colors catch the light too.

I also added these same colors to the paper elements for the canvas.  Again, I used my fingers to move the color around.  I did not wipe my fingers between colors so I got a wonderful  mix of the colors without really trying!  These colors were also applied to the wood and chipboard elements.

Now for a little fun.  I sliced off small pieces of the Gelatos® Double Scoop® Metallic Mint and Gelatos® Blueberry using my palette knife.  I then added Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Glaze to each and mixed well with the palette knife.  Then I added it to the metal butterfly you see in the picture.  Simply drip the colors on and swirl with the palette knife.

This is what the butterfly looked like after I applied my colored Glaze to it.  I also added a few beads in the center for a body.  This took some time to dry because I put it on really thick.  I left it on a small acrylic block overnight to dry.

Once all the elements were dry I added them to the canvas.  I also added some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Glaze to the wood letters to give them some shine and was happy to see that it really brought out the colors and sparkle of the metallic colors.

I wanted to take a moment to say a big Thank You to Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.  My time this summer on the Summer 2014 Design Team was truly a wish come true for me!  I know that their amazing products will continue to be my go to items for creating and continuing to make my wishes come true!

Round Robin Journal with Jen Matott (AND Ustream winner)

P1010630

Have you ever participated in a traveling/ Round Robin swap before?  I used to years ago while active on Scrapbook.com, but haven't in a loooong time.  When a friend started a journal Round Robin swap, I was in!  We chose our own topic and journal and then we send it on to a designated person in our group for them to add to it!  It's exciting and fun to see the journals as we get them and create in each one.  It was hard to let go of this baby at first but I really loved getting someone else's to create in.  Here is a peek at my journal before I mailed it on to my buddy!

Patriotic Layout by Tonya Gibbs

Patriotic Layout by Tonya Gibbs

We recently celebrated our Independence Day here in the USA.  I love to see everyone dressed in their red, white & blue to show their patriotism. My Sister In-law shared this photo of her and her beautiful daughter.  Since my niece is all dolled up like a pageant queen, I wanted my layout to resemble a parade float.   The colors needed to be rich and vibrant, but feminine and soft, so I turned to my stash of Gelatos®. Their creamy texture and rich pigments were just what I needed to make this layout pop!

When I use Gelatos® I'm often asked these two questions:
