No-Line Watercoloring with Art Grip Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils

IMG_9761

Aloha Guys!  This is Joyce from http://enjoyscrappin2.com and today I have a No-line watercolored card using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.  I personally love to watercolor and these watercolor pencils are by far my favorite.  The colors are very vivid,  intense and they blend out completely.  These pencils are Waterproof, Permanent and Archival, once it's dried.  Which makes layering very easy, without having the color underneath get effected.  I love them, they are very easy to work with.  I hope you enjoy this card and I'll see you next time.  Thanks again :)

Cheers for the New Year with Penny

New-Year-600

Hello crafters...Penny here today and with the holidays coming to a close I had to sneak in here with a New Years card. Several Gelatos® and some Texture Luxe™ were used to make this card full of raised goodness. And when you make a big booboo by tearing the corner, you then distress the card so it looks intentional. :)

Mixed Media Canvas with Gelatos® Colors

Faber_Castell_Design_Memory_Craft_Gelatos_Mixed_Media_Canvas

Hi everyone! Carisa here.  Today I'm back to share with you a pretty mixed media canvas using primarily Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® Colors. I was inspired by the pretty papers I had just received as well as the rub on from the collection. I wanted to see how it would work over a background made with Gelatos® Colors. I pulled out Butter Cream Gelatos®, Kiwi Gelatos®, Aqua Dolce Gelatos®, Earl Grey Gelatos® from the Pastels Set and Iced Currant Gelatos® from the Metallics Set. 

  Faber_Castell_Design_Memory_Craft_Gelatos_Mixed_Media_Canvas_Close3

 I started out by covering my entire canvas with Gesso and adhering pattern paper with Gel Medium. Then I added Gelatos® Colors using one of my favorite methods by scribbling a lot of color on and spritzing with water then letting it drip down the canvas.

 After drying that with a heat tool, I applied Gelatos® Colors through a stencil from the 101 Collection using a baby wipe. I then added the rub on and coated it with a thin layer of Gel Medium to protect it for coloring later. I also added some Texture Luxe through a stencil to add more texture and tie in the gold from the rub on.

Finally, I colored in the flower using Stamper’s Big Brush Pens and added some Glass Bead Glitter Gel on top. To see the entire process, I have a video for you:

 

Products Used:

Gelatos® Colors (Kiwi, Aqua Dolce, Butter Cream, Earl Grey, Iced Currant)
