Which is why I'm so excited about the new product line from Faber-Castell, DESIGN MEMORY CRAFT. Hi everyone, My name is Brenda Pinnick and I'm guest blogging today!
I want to share with you what my 75 students will be making in the Mixed Media Workshop I'll be teaching for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft this upcoming weekend at the Craft & Hobby Show in Los Angeles. Well, I'll give you a sneek peak, anyway...
This is just one of the pages in the minibook we'll be making.
When I first heard about this new product line for crafting, all based on color, I knew I had to check it out! Those of you who know me, know that I'm all about beautiful color palettes! As a colorist for over 15 years and a lifelong professional artist, I can tell you that having color confidence in your creative work will open up all kinds of creative fun and will take away the fear of "messing up."
One of my favorite things to remind artists in my classes and workshops is that using color is free. It doesn't cost you anything. Each hue is a tool in your tool box. Now that doesn't mean you should use all of them at once, but here, the color palettes are harmonious
which means that you will end up with a project which offers both variety and harmony, two of the essential ingredients in making successful art pieces!
The other wonderful advantage is that these products all work together as mixed media! I know you'll love using the new Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products as much as I do.
For the project above, I've used the following: Strathmore Vellum Bristol, Sizzix dies and Textured Impressions by Brenda Pinnick, (new lines, launching at CHA!), Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mixed Media Sampler in blue.
After the show, I'll be posting a complete set of instructions here and on my blog at http://www.brendapinnick.com/blog
so be sure to check back. And if you're attending the show this coming week, be sure to stop by the Faber-Castell booth (#547) to say hello and enjoy my make & take from 10am- 2pm Sat and 9am - 1pm on Sunday & Monday. You'll have a chance to give the products a try and to enter to win an ipad touch, courtesy of Faber-Castell!!! (I hope YOU win!)
See you there!
