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!

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®.

This month's challenge is to create something you don't usually create. It could be style, colors, theme, products, anything you don't create often.

For me, it's Steampunk. I like the look but don't try doing it myself. Here's my take:

Take the Challenge with Mou, May 2014

Hi everyone, Mou here  and welcome to the fifth Take The Challenge of 2014! And also Happy National Scrapbook Day!

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®.

How about a product challenge in honor of National Scrapbook Day? As you know, Design Memory Craft is a brand of Faber-Castell that's dedicated to the memory crafters. All the products are archival, permanent, colorfast, non-toxic, and acid-free... in short, they are safe to use with your photos. Your challenge is to create any memory project using at least TWO Design Memory Craft products. You are welcome to use more, but you must use at least two categories (not just two colors of the same category, but two separate categories) from the following:

To be entered to win, please

1. Create any memory project (scrapbook layout, mini book, photo frame, art journal page, etc.) using AT LEAST TWO different Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products.

2. Photograph the products you used and the project you created. Share a link with us in the comments section of the challenge post.

**My apologies in advance to those who don't find Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products in your area. There will be many more non-product challenges in future for you to participate in and win some of these fabulous products -- that's a PROMISE :) If you check back previous Take the Challenge posts, you'll see that we rarely ever do product challenges. I wanted to dedicate this month's challenge to those who support and help advance our brand and show them our appreciation. I hope that you will understand.**

Now, let me share with you my take on the challenge

FCMay2014TakeTheChallenge_MouS

I did a mini book. Here's a spread from it. This is also an example of how to showcase your project image. Please feel free to post more than one image as not all memory projects can be completely showcased with just one photo.

Here's what I used to create my mini book and a simple example of how to photograph the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products you use

Art Journal Page with Jen Matott

 

JustBepage1

Hi creative friends!  I am so very excited to see the new products that Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® has released.  One of them is full of my artwork!  In fact, I designed the art and instruction booklet photos/ write up for this kit! 

It is the second one that I've designed for  them and I'm thrilled with how it looks!  WOW!  I can't wait for you to be able to get your hands on this kit.  In the process, I had to cut a couple pages out due to space and materials that were going to be included.  So, I wanted to share one of those pages that didn't make the cut with you!

Journaling with emotions

Storm blog

Hello, Olga Siedlecka here. Do you love art journaling? I do love and every once in the while I have to transcribe my emotions onto papier. Since my last art journal burst at the seams I decided to try out the Faber-Castell one. It is dedicated to all media and I came to the grips with four out of the eight mentioned techniques: texturing, painting, collage and embellishing.
