Today I had an absolute blast on this project!
I'd like to say that I spend hours thinking up what I'm going to do and planning every creative touch intensely but the truth is most times I just sit down, get out my products and just follow where the creative bit of my brain takes me, I cannot lie! I find very often when I'm teaching that many students struggle with the composition of what they're making or the colours and my only advice to them is always to just 'go with the flow' because anything else tends to restrict your mind and creativity. If you REALLY struggle with letting go I can highly recommend using sketches, and very often even a simple card sketch can be turned into a great journal page or a decor item, it's all down to interpretation. And you can't go wrong with great products of course, I honestly have yet to be disappointed with anything I've made using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products because the quality is supreme!
Hello everyone! Today I would like to share a great card I made using Gelatos from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft. I’m so excited!! I wanted anxiously to use my Gelato to try new technique obviously for me. I tried Resist technique and used Gelatos as watercolor and DTP. Here’s how I made my card:
I gathered my supplies: Gelatos Metallic: Grape, Blueberry, Butterscotch and mint, Brush, plastic cup, water, VersaMark ink, white embossing powder, cardstock, card and stamp came with Mix and Match set from Faber Castell Design Memory Craft.
Hello, my dear crafty friends! Irit is here again and this time I decided to make my "Same, but different" crafty project.
Lot of times we see a tutorial from one of the most popular artists over the web that is great and inspirational, but we don't feel like those "copy and paste" kind of crafters, so we just pass. I saw this tag tutorial online, and I felt that as much as I like this tag, I hate to be a " duplicating monkey" and if I would make it, it should be done in my own and totally different way. So I made a design, even with similar shapes, but not a single product the designer used was used making this project. All I used were some stamps from Visible Image company I design for and all possible Faber Castell Design Memory Craft products.
So here we go!
Jen Matott here again to share another mixed media project with you! I love finding new materials to create my art on... I love dark surfaces for Faber- Castell Design Memory Craft's Gelatos and Metallic Gelatos to be used on. They just come alive against the dark background! Here I used a black velvet paper to create this journal page. This is nothing like those Elvis paintings!
I love the gradation of colour behind the gold & with the final one the effect of the gesso stamping to accent the arrow.
I'm in love with those colors you chose!
