Hello Blogosphere! Welcome to Day 4 of the Unity Stamps and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog Hop!  It's Tiffany here and I thought I'd show you a timeless Faux Leather Technique with Gelatos and how I used that super cute Boots, Class and Sass Itty Bitty stamp set from Unity!

TiffUnityMain

You'll need the following supplies for this tutorial:

TiffUnityStep1

1. For a Faux Leather look, color an A2 card base with various earth-toned gelatos (cinnamon, iced chai, butterscotch).

TiffUnityStep2

2. Blend with a wet paintbrush. 

TiffUnityStep3

3. Spray with water and ball it up to create wrinkles. The water makes the paper more pliable!

TiffUnityStep4

4. Flatten the balled up paper, allow to dry, and then apply some chocolate Gelatos with a foam wedge onto the wrinkles! EASY peasy!

Stitching adds that extra fabric charm to your Faux Leather panel!  I had so much fun designing with Unity Stamp Co. & hope you enjoyed this short Faux Leather Tutorial!

Thanks for hopping by,

Blog Hop with Unity Stamps! Day 3 with Rita Barakat

10413330_594249277351752_3071880075318103672_n

 Welcome to Day three of the Unity Stamps and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog Hop!  Rita Barakat  here and I thought I'd show you a fun way to use the same stamp three different ways!  Each day we’ll post a new project on our blogs so come back and leave a comment to be entered in our $50 product giveaway! For extra entries, leave a comment on our Facebook page HERE.

RitaBarakat.com2 I received this sweet girl stamp called "Every breath", I love that stand alone she can easily become a work of art by using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and a little water.

RitaBarakat.com3 Here she is again, now with the added sentiment and sparkly stars thanks some Glass Bead Glitter Gel and  a star stencil (TCW). I used a little foam tape to pop up the sentiment but worked it right into the design. I also layered her dress - stamping it twice, cutting it out and using foam tape. I used  Gelatos®Colors and a very small paint brush for this piece.

RitaBarakat.com4 Bonus picture, so you can really see the Glass Bead Glitter Gel.  

RitaBarakat.com1 And for the minimalist, a simple mat frame will do. I colored this one with Gelatos®Colors and PITT® Artist Pens and added a digital sentiment. I hope that gives you some ideas for using these products!

Blessings!
Rita

I *heart* mix and match

Celebrate you layout

Hi everyone Beck Beattie here with my first Guest Design Team post and I am so very excited to be shaing with you today!  

When I got my package of yummy products to play with I just couldn't wait to get started.  I have always loved products by Faber-Castell and the new collection of yummy products released recently at CHA are just DIVINE to work with!   

Today I am sharing a mixed media Scrapbook page I created of my little boy on his birthday.  

I had so much fun mixing it all up with the different items in there that I created a video to show you how I used the various Faber-Castell® products together.

 

These products are designed to work well with each other as I have done on this layout.  Why not give it a go to mix things up a little and share with us on the Design Memory Crafts Facebook page here.  I'd LOVE to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Art GRIP® Aquarelle Valentines

 
 Hello! Dana Tatar here today sharing some valentines that I created with the Red Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. I used the watercolor pencils along with some Gel Medium to create the string heart embellishments for my valentines. The richly pigmented water-soluble lead from the pencils turns into permanent, waterproof and lightfast watercolor, so my dyed string hearts are just as vibrant as the watercolor on the paper.

Wedding Series: Mixed Media - will you try it?

jan 2014 019   Hey there creative people Rita Barakat here! When I am out and about I hear two things- either you are an avid follower of the blog and never do any mixed media because you are intimidated by mixed media but you love looking at it or you just cant get enough! Either way, todays post is for you!  Mixed media- will you try it? Time to get your hands dirty! (Or get your gloves out- yes I know you!) "The best is yet to come" would that be a great theme for  a wedding? Exciting times starting on a new venture ! I made this little canvas as I was thinking of a table with gifts and mementos at a wedding. How sweet would it be there with the other best wishes for the bride and groom! This project is simple enough for the beginner as a quick and easy project if you are an old pro!
