Be Happy | A Scrapbooking Tutorial by Irit Landgraf

2015-02-1o2 12

Hi! I am beyond excited to share with you my first project as a guest designer on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog.

I am a 12*12 scrapbooker at heart, so today I'll show some of my favorite ways to use Gelatos®, Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and Stamper’s Big Brush Pens. Let's get started!

I prepped my paper with a thin layer of gesso because I knew I wanted to use Gelatos® and lots of water, and I find the color flows better when my surface is primed. I had to go with one of my favorite color schemes lately, purples and aquas. You can find a list of all the products I used at the end of this post.

 Hi everyone! It's Laurel Beard here today with my first post as a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Guest Designer! ACK! I am over the moon excited about guesting here! There are no words to explain my joy! If you know me at all, you know I love Gelatos® and coffee! So, I thought for my first project as a Guest Design Team member, I would create a funny coffee card full of texture using various products from the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® line. All the products are "Mix & Match", which means they are designed to work together!!!!! Actually, their tagline is "mix mediums with matching color palettes to creative with confidence." And it's true. Today's cards features: Gelatos®, Stamper's Big Brush Pens and Whipped Spackle. All the exact supplies I used are listed at the end of this post.

Hi everyone it's Rita AND Lisa here with you today with two FABULOUS projects to show you today.

First off it's Lisa's turn to share her project!

LisaAdametz-RoseHeart-1

Hi crafty friends! It's been quite an exciting week here on the blog with all of the beautiful projects featuring May Arts. Isn't my canvas fun with those little roses creating that heart? As usual, I try not to make it difficult. Let me show you how:

1. Coat the burlap canvas in Gesso. Not completely. Being sure to leave some of the burlap showing through.

2, 3. Using May Arts Rose Trim and a large die-cut heart, peel the paper backing from the trim (it's adhesive!) and apply to heart. 

4. Once complete, spritz trim with water. Then using sponge "pounce" Gold Texture Luxe into surface of Rose Trim.

LisaAdametz-RoseHeart-2

5.  Once Texture Luxe has been smooshed into the rose it should be air dried.  The Texture Luxe dries quickly so this shouldn't be an issue (for you impatient crafters like me).

6. Add Gelato® colors to the background. Gold, Cotton Candy, and Bubble Gum were initially used, but I found them too bright. So I toned them down with some Metallic Melon and even some Red Cherry.

7. Rub and blend the Gelatos® in with your fingers, paintbrush, or baby wipe to blend.

8. Place stencil over background and use either sponge or palette knife with Gold Texture Luxe to create background image.

LisaAdametz-RoseHeart-39. I liked the look of the Red Cherry Gelato® so much in contrast to the May Arts Aqua ribbon (which I had wrapped around one side along with a piece of May Arts Jute) that I also added more of the Red Cherry to the heart and misted it to make it more red.

10. Sticker letters were added to spell out my quote: "To thine own self be true".  I picked this quote for Valentine's Day because I think you need to love yourself first before you can love anyone else. ♥

11. The quote was coated with Gel Medium to give it staying power.

12. Using a piece of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesive Sheets, portions of "stickiness" were applied to the background and lifted off. Then Fab Foil was applied to the sticky part and rubbed with a bone folder (according to directions.) Once lifted the shimmery part is left behind. Very cool!

LisaAdametz-RoseHeart-4I hope you liked this project as much as I did. Aren't those little roses cute? And adding the Texture Luxe is so perfect to make them really shabby chic.

Feb 2015 005100 If you are like me and are sew challenged a little scor-tape does a tremendous job keeping beautiful ribbon scrunched up and in place! Feb 2015 017100-001 I used the same tape directly on my little canvas(watercolor paper) to add these pretty little flower ribbon, then I slid it in the pouch (Deflecto). For the artwork I used various Gelatos®Colors, PITT® Artist Pens, Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, Gesso, the new Texture Gems. Blessings!

Hello Everyone! It's Limor Webber here today!

We’re hopping with May Arts this week! We’re so excited to be partnering again with them and crafting with their fabulous ribbons. 
Are you ready for an inspiration filled week with giveaways? Here’s how you can enter: Stop by our blog and the May Arts blog each day this week and leave a comment. Two winners will win $50 of product from us, and 3 spools of ribbons from May Arts. 
Good luck!

I wanted to show you a super quick tutorial on a different way you can use your ribbons.  Join me in 3 super quick steps to create this background.

IMG_9999

First step is take your ribbon and adhere it to the cardstock using Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium

IMG_0001

 

Take your favorite Gelatos® and apply them on to the ribbon as shown.  With a paint brush, water and your finger go ahead and start blending those colors together.  You'll start to see how easy those creamy and silky colors just mix and blend.

 

IMG_0002

The last step to my background was adding a little bit of the white Gelatos® to tone down the brightness and allow all three colors to blend perfectly.

IMG_0003

Here is an example of how easy it is to complete this card in seconds using any stencil and an inspirational sticker or phrase!

I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial!
