Canvas Corp Blog Hop day 2 with Rita

Hi everyone and welcome to day two of the blog hop with Canvas Corp! Rita Barakat here and today I am sharing a Canvas Corp 6x6 Canvas Stitched Mini I decorated with a few of my girls. I had so many pictures I made a little video of the finished mini portfolio below (this is the cover)! Here are some tips and techniques I used...

 You can use Gesso or paint directly on the canvas with Gelatos® Colors! If you are doing a lot of fine detail you might want to use a thin layer of Gesso first - it gives you a smoother surface and a little more time to manipulate the colors.  
I draw directly on the canvas, then spread the color with a wet paint brush. If I am covering a large surface, such as the background I grab Gelatos® Double Scoop®  and mist the surface instead of just using a wet paint brush.
RitaBarakat.com5 All of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® textures worked on the canvas; with and without stencils. On the left I am using the Texture Luxe™ Gold  with a stencil. On the right I used the Chalkboard Paint for the wings (I love the contrast between the paint and Gelatos®) and the Glass Bead Glitter Gel with the stencil. Have you tried the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products on canvas yet? Here is my finished project...  


Be sure to hop along this week  with our fantastic Design Team to see what we've made with the Canvas Corp. products and check out the Canvas Corp blog to see what they've done with the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products this week, too! 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.

Art Journal with Jen Matott


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! Dana Tatar here today sharing a 2015 desk calendar that I created with some of my favorite Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products. I'm especially excited to show how I used the NEW Gold Texture Gems! Texture Gems are liners that are great for embellishing and are sold in a 3-count set of Gold, Silver and Pearl, and as a single count Texture Gem in Ice, which is a clear liner. If you missed the CHA Updates you're going to want to go back and read up on all the fantastic new releases!

New Texture Luxe with Jen Matott


Hi crafty friends!  I am here to share a project that I made using the new Texture Lux and our new Texture Stencils!  I love this stuff!

The Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Texture Luxe in gold is gorgeous!  Actually, ALL three colors are gorgeous but I used Gold on this board.   Using the Gelatos® Steampunk color set was used first through the new Texture Stencils.  I used the hexagons and dots for this page. Using a dauber, I put the color through the stencil.

{INSPIRE} mixed media journal cover...


 Happy New Year everyone!!  I hope your start of 2015 has been a great one so far!  One final post from me before this design term is up!  I created a cover for a mixed media journal.  The word 'Inspire' has to be one of my favourite words!  I am always inspired by art, and others so it was fitting to have it on the front of this journal cover.  

Here's a little rundown of how it came to be...

December Art Journal with Rachel Kleinman

With all the pressures and deadlines of the holiday season it becomes difficult to make time for yourself and the things you enjoy. Last year I created a December art journal, which gave me a space to play with my paints, pens, and papers without any commitment, deadline, or guidelines. It was my "me-time" place and I absolutely loved it, AND... I even finished that journal! Now I'm going to start my December 2014 art journal!

Gelatos® Art Journaling


Hi crafry peeps! Teresa here, I'm really loving the art journaling trend. The thing I love most is the freedom I feel when I'm working on a page that's one of many pages in a journal. There is no pressure to get it right the first time, because if it doesn't quite work out the way I imagined, there's always another day and another page. It's all about playing, and enjoying the process rather than producing a completed article.

This post is about four pages in a little album. I used the Mini Journal Boards as the base, as well as some Double Scoop Gelatos® and some Design Memory Craft mediums:
