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.

'Flowers' a canvas...

Final pic wm

Hello everyone!  Krista here again showing you another fun project you can do using some Gelatos®, Stampers Big Brush Pens and Textural Accents.  I've got a little video-slideshow-tutorial on how I created this 6" x 12" canvas. 

 

This canvas was super fun (and fast) to make.  I used lots of Gelatos® and Stampers Big Brush Pens.  If you've never tried Gelatos® before you MUST!  They are my fav, my go to, my can't live without...lol.  They blend effortlessly with or without water, are compact, highly pigmented acid free color sticks that glide on creamy smooth (just like butter) for maximum color and coverage.  And the Brush Pens always finish things off beautifully.  These pens are all lightfast India Ink and have a durable brush nib for a multitude of uses!  I would be lost without them!  :)

Anyway, hoping this project brightens your day and puts a little glimmer of hope that spring is just around the corner!  

Enjoy your day! ~Krista van Tol

After the Gel Medium was thoroughly dry, I whitewashed to unite the various papers a bit using Gesso.
