Yay!! :) Are you excited? It's Lisa here and it's Day THREE of the blog hop with May Arts. I'm sure you've already loved the 1st two days, so I hope that I'm going to bring you something fresh and fun, too.
Here is the little project that I created:
So here's a little step-by-step on how I made this (but, as with any canvas, it's really something you make your own, if that makes sense):
Here's a card I created for the Splitcoast Stamper's Mixability challenge. I'm challenging everyone to incorporate 3 or more different surfaces into their project!
I have a video tutorial on how to keep it simple:
It's easy peasy lemon squeezy!

If you can go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I would like to go to Rome and Egypt.
What's your favorite food?
I love Chinese and Mexican vegetarian food.
What's your 'signature' crafting technique?
I love playing with colors using a variety of mediums. I tend to create clean and simple designs.
And finally...any words to our readers?
I'm so excited to be here at Faber Castell Design Memory Crafts, sharing my creations with you all!! Have fun with whatever you create, it's an art in itself :)
Hi everyone, it's Anita here and I want to share a layout I made using a variety of Faber-Castell® products. I love adding visual texture to my layouts using pens and markers. It is a great way to add a lot of detail without adding a lot of bulk (which is a big problem with me!)
A great way to make a die-cut sticker pop off the page is to simply outline it with a contrasting color as I have done here. I used my Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Cobalt Turquoise around the outside of my die cut and I used my PITT® Artist Pen in Black on the inside.
I just love the chance to get all inky and messy for these Design Memory Crafts posts, mixed media has always always been my big love but I rarely get chance to do much of it these days so it's a real treat for me to sit and have a play - and I am so lucky that I am part of this fabulously talented team and able to use such an awesome range of products and show you what they can do! In fact I get so wrapped up in what I'm doing I go like the clappers and usually forget to take photos!
This art journal page was such a joy to make and I think I used ALL my Design Memory Craft products all in one place so I hope I didn't go too mad!
Hello, friends! Vivian here today with my second post as a Guest Blogger with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft. Did you know that yesterday was Make Your Dreams Come True Day? Well, in honor of this meaningful day, I crafted this Art Journaling page along with a coordinatingvideo tutorial in which I share some techniques for creating fluidity in your compositions.
The dreams I have for myself as I approach the big FOUR OH bear no resemblance to the dreams I had for myself growing up - they're not nearly as outrageous, but in some sense, equally difficult to realize.
This tireless performer in our Vegas garden very much encapsulates what I'd like to see for myself artistically this year - the ability to thrive with little coddling, and spiritually - to respond in trying situations the way this one below truly embraces the scorching Vegas sun.
My name is Patricia Chalas and this is my first project to share with you as a guest designer with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft. I have created Aquarelle Background Tags today using Mixed Media Aquarelles & Ink.
A colorful and interesting desing! Thanks for the idea! Hugs!
I like very much your idea and the materials you have used. Hugs!
This is so cute! I love how the gelatos tinted the cork. :)
Thanks Mou for inspirations through out this year, it was fun to participate in this monthly challenge with creative themes.
This year lot of changes happened in my family which were of course good, so 'Change' is the word for my Art Journal page. Linking here
I have been saving corks to make this!! Cute!,
this is beautiful!!
