MargieHiguchi 600x600 MetallicLuxeGlassJarDecoration


Hello and Happy December! Margie here.  The trend of glass jar is going strong and I wanted to see what I can do with it using the Texture Luxe™ Pearl medium. What is Texture Luxe™? It is an opaque acrylic paste designed to create a thick texture with a shimmery metallic finish. So I used it as a paint to cover the glass jar! What do you think?

ThisHappened - 3 copyHi, Artsy Friends!  I had to opportunity to go to an all weekend scrapbooking retreat this past weekend and had a blast creating, eating, and laughing!  I had the photos from my trip to the Faber-Castell warehouse and had been meaning to scrap it.  It was two years ago... see how long it takes me to get photos done?   I had so much fun looking around their warehouse and offices.

Hello everyone!

Zoey here today to show you how I altered this 8X8 Canvas!

Texture Luxe Skins on a Scrapbook Page with Jen


P1030737Want a gorgeous metallic surface to cut into shapes and add as embellishments?  Well, I have a technique for you!  This was so fun (if you have a little patience and room to leave it to dry!)... Those pie wedges on the page are Texture Luxe skins!  What is a skin?  Well, acrylic mediums are plastic-based and when they dry on a non-stick surface, they can be peeled off and create a "skin" of medium to cut shapes from!

Take the Challenge with Mou, September 2015 Edition

Hi everyone, Mou here! I'm back with Take the Challenge with Mou with the September 2015 edition.

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®.  

For September, my challenge for you is to alter something, anything you already have.

During our move, a lot of forgotten items were rediscovered. One was this wooden letter "M". I had some paper stuck on it but nothing special. With my stash of mixed media supplies, I decided to alter that letter to suit my current aesthetics. Here's the final result.


Here are the supplies I used to alter my wooden monogram.

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents & Tools: Gesso, Gel Medium, Whipped Spackle, Texture Luxe™ Gold, Texture Gems™ 3ct Metallics, Stencils 10 ct. 101  and 10 ct. 201 collections,  Gelatos Tool set

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®: RED set, BLUE set

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pens: BLACK

Others: wooden letter, patterned paper, tissue, string, stamps.


Here's how you can go about altering your letter.

Cover the letter with a layer of patterned papers and seal it off with Gel Medium.

Whitewash with Gesso.

Add texture with circles stencil from Stencils 10 ct. 101 set using Whipped Spackle.

When dry, color with Gelatos®. Blend colors with water. Let some colors drip down.

When dry, rub some Texture Luxe™ Gold to accentuate the texture.


Ink up stamps with BLACK Stamper's Big Brush pen. Stamp all around.

Tie some string to the letter.

Attach some tissue paper here and there to add interest to the wooden letter with Gel Medium. Also attach some patterned paper cutouts.


Choose a bird from the birds stencil from 10 ct. 201 set and apply Whipped Spackle through it. You can choose your favorite stencil that fits the look you are going for.

Using Texture Gems™ 3ct Metallics GOLD, create small dots to embellish the bird. Let dry thoroughly.


Attach a favorite saying to the letter to finish.

Don't forget to share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to this challenge post with link to your project image(s) by Sunday, 9/20 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.

The prize for this challenge is: One pack of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stencils 201 Collection.

Don't forget to check back on Monday, 9/21 to see if YOU won! Good luck to all!
