Hi everyone and welcome to day one of the blog hop with Canvas Corp! To win Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft's $50 prize, comment below each day this week. One random winner will be selected on April 20th.
It's Lisa with you to start the week of festivities and I hope that you enjoy the project that I made.
Now, I'm not gonna lie and tell you that I started my project and loved it right off the bat. In fact, I had made something else entirely and HATED it! It happens. So I ripped off as much as I could and used the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gesso and applied about 3 coats and started over. It's a learning process. And not everything goes as planned or what you had in your head. But, don't give up!

If you've seen our new packaging for the Mixed Media Stencils 101 Collection, you might recognize this piece. I did the artwork for that package! I used lots of media on this one!
Using a Mixed Media Square Journal board, I applied some lace and fabric tape to create a background texture.

Does it feel like Spring might never come to anyone else? It has snowed in Central New York for a month with 3-4 feet on the ground (actually up to my windows) and the air so cold it hurts to breathe when you step outside! I am so ready for a warm up! So to brighten my cold, dreary, winter day, I made a spring tag with some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® media and UmWow Studio lovelies.
I needed some gorgeous color so after priming the chip with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso, I added a rainbow of Gelatos® colors to the tag. Gorgeous!

I'm in a "Art Journal Swap" that trades journals and each person does a page in it following a theme that is set by the owner of the book. It's fun to see what others have done in the book prior to you getting it but it's equally fun to create a page to pass on!
This book's owner left the theme up to each artist. I just chose to create something mixed media with texture and color! I wanted to keep my theme about art and creation.

Hi everyone! It's Lisa here with you and I'm sharing a watercolor type of card made with the Gelatos® Steampunk colors. The way that I created it leaves the colors looking much softer than you'd expect, though. The paper itself has a resist embedded into it, which is very cool. Let me show you how:

Happy weekend crafty friends! It's Lisa here with you and I have a cool tag to share today. I love repurposing things I get in the mail to make tags and cards, or pieces of a canvas. Today's repurposed bit turned into a tag. Lots of texture and oh-so-pretty!
Let me show you how I created it!

Hello! I am so excited to be on the Guest Design Team again. I hope to inspire you to take out those Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® products and come play with us! Today I am featuring a couple of their newest releases from CHA (Craft & Hobby Assoc.) Mega Trade Show last month :) These are perfect additions to your Design Memory Craft® supplies!
I had a work in progress canvas that I didn't like it so I re-purposed it for today's project. Just use two coats of Chalkboard Paint and it goes away! LOL! The image below is only one coat - dry between coats :)
