Hi everyone!

I like to create colorful layouts and I love the colors of the new Gelatos® Bright kit.

For this project, I would like to show you a technique to create a watercolor background very easily with Gelatos®.

First, prepare your scrapbook sheet with Gesso and dry it with the heatgun. You can now start applying your Gelatos®. After this step, spray water on your works.

Stenciled Negative Background

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here today with another way to use those Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils with the new Mixed Media Stencils! I love the new Mixed Media Stencils because they come in a variety of patterns at an affordable price! They're also disposable, but with a coat of glaze you can prolong their life & usability! Pretty neat, right?

I hope you're inspired to try this SUPER EASY technique on your own!

Custom Stencil Art YOU can do!

TiffGlassesTrioMain

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here with a short picture tutorial for you! I adore the Sunglasses/Mustaches stencil from the Mixed Media Stencils 10ct 201 Collection, but was stumped as to how to incorporate it into my every day crafting! Then a lightbulb went off in my head & I remembered seeing a cool watercolor print on Pinterest featuring simply drawn sunglasses that were watercolored!

First, I started experimenting with the various frame options on watercolor paper. Then I doodled the details with a PITT Artist Pen (black, M). Mixing our mediums is one of my favorite things to do, so next I added color with my Gelatos® and details with my Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. The only thing left to do was to frame it or add it to a card! You could even use it for a pocket scrapbooking page! 

I absolutely love the results & hope this encourages you to use the Mixed Media Stencils with the PITT Artist Pens to create custom art!

Ann Corbiere-Scott's Bloom Art Journal page featuring Aquarelle water color pencils

IMG_6706

Hi, Ann Corbiere-Scott here and I am over the moon to be a little part of the most amazing company, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®! I am thrilled to share some Art GRIP® Aquarelle watercolor pencil artsy fun with you!  I love art journaling, I have oodles of them!  I find them a excellent way to try out new techniques and products, coupled with a positive message is absolutely perfection to me! 

Here we go! I am madly in love with the mini Mixed Media journal, so I took a page from mine and jumped right in!

1. I adhered a vintage book paper page onto the mixed media journal page with Gel Medium.

2. I painted a thin layer of Chalkboard paint over the book paper, I wanted to be able to slightly see the words through the paint. 

IMG_6690

3. On another sheet of book paper, I loosely drew some organic flowers and leaves with Art GRIP Aquarelle water color pencils (I used 168 for the leaves and 117,121,111, 107, 152, 125, 162, and 156 for flowers). With a wet brush, activate the watercolor to create loose, flowy flower and leaf shapes.

4. With an XS PITT® Artist Pen, randomly scribble draw flower and leaf outlines around painted shapes.

5. Cut out and adhere in a frame like shape, with Gel Medium, taking a moment to layer and tuck pieces under others for lots of visual interest and depth. ( here's a trick I use-before I adhere it all down, I play with placement of all of the bits and pieces. Once I have a layout I really like, I take a photo with my cell phone, then I have a visual reminder to work from when adhering!)

6. Lastly, I wrote the word bloom with a pencil onto the open chalkboard space. Next, I traced over the pencil lines with the silver (251) pencil. To add depth to your handwritten letters, widen the down strokes. Fill in the open down stroke spaces with the silver pencil. Go over the outer lines of each letter with a Silver (251) PITT artist pen 1,5 and add a few coordinating colored enamel dots for a bit more dimension.

Stenciled Watercolor Background

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here today with a Video Tutorial showing you an easy way to create a beautiful background with the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils! I'm currently on Spring Break Vacation, so I was inspired by the ocean in Florida!

If you're not familiar with the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, they're pretty amazing and my most favorite product in the Design Memory Craft® Mix & Match line! Not only are they completely water soluble, but you can get beautiful vibrant detail with them that will last because they're also lightfast & permanent once they're dry! I especially love how portable they are!
