Mini Mixed Media Journal with Marjolaine Walker

BeArtJournal1

Hi creative friends, Marjolaine Walker here with my first post as a guess designer. I am so thrilled to be here! This project is part one of a two part project.  The Mini Mixed Media Journal has twelve pages and today I am showing you six. I will be doing something different to finish up the rest of the journal.

For my projects I rely heavily on Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Mix and Match collections. The reason for this is that I am partially color blind and need all the help I can get in putting colors together! Mix and Match takes the guess work out of it for me because the colors are set to look fantastic together. All the Gelatos® I used come from the 15 piece Brights that has quickly become my favorite!

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!

TiffGlassesTrioCollage

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!

Thanks for stopping by,

Last but not least, use a Pitt Artist pen to create faux stitch lines around the tag for some interest.

My my project, I also used Graphic 45's ATC Box in Kraft to create a future photo memory keeper box (I have 2 beautiful cats so the Raining Cats & Dogs collection is perfect for me).

I coated the entire box with a coat of Chalkboard Paint. Once dry I gave it a second coat of paint and allowed that to dry.

LisaAdametz-LoveIs-G45-2

I measured the papers that I wanted to use and applied those with Gel Medium to the sides, bottom, and top of the box. Allowing to dry or heat setting, as preferred.

LisaAdametz-LoveIs-G45-3

Using one of the Stencils from the Stencil 101 pack I applied Texture Luxe™ Gold lightly (with a sponge) through the stencil to the box lid.

LisaAdametz-LoveIs-G45-4

I additionally fussy cut a flower pattern and adhered that with Gel Medium and added a touch of Glass Bead Glitter Gel for extra shimmer. This was also attached to the box lid.

A few decorative chipboard elements were added to the sides as well as a large chipboard piece to the top. A few of the smaller chipboard tags were nestled inside for a decorative touch.

Here is a close-up!

Graphic 45 Blog Hop Day 3 with Jen

Hi artsy friends, Jen here on Day 3 of our Graphic 45 blog hop!

This week we're so excited to be hopping with Graphic 45! Stop by our blog every day this week to see craft inspirations! Don't forget to leave a comment on the posts to be entered in our giveaway!

For this project, I used Graphic 45's ATC Box in Kraft and created a little steampunk art box. 

JenMatottGraphic45 - 7

The lid is covered with paper from the Topography line in Journey.   I loved the dictionary text on this paper with the slightly aged appearance!  Right up my alley!

JenMatottGraphic45 - 23The butterfly was layered on the lid but it's actually a Gel Medium skin transfer!  Here's how you do it:

1. Coat your toner-based image (photocopy, laser print or magazine image) with a generous even layer of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium.  Brush in one direction.  Allow to dry completely. Then, layer on another generous layer going the opposite direction.  Repeat for the 3rd layer and allow to dry completely. 

JenMatottGraphic45 - 1
Once completely dry, you are going to spray water onto the back of the paper.  Allow to saturate and then slowly use your finger to rub the pulp off.

JenMatottGraphic45 - 2

JenMatottGraphic45 - 4


I tried to get as much pulp off as a could but it does leave a dull haze when dry so I added a layer of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Glaze to the image side.  Once dry, it gives it a nice soft sheen and hides the pulp fibers!

JenMatottGraphic45 - 6

Using the Steampunk Gelatos colors, I colored on of the tags that comes in the box.  I used it as a layering piece.

JenMatottGraphic45 - 8

I layered the tag, over one end of the ribbon on the lid, then the cut out frame from the Gilded Lily Ephemera card pack and then the butterfly.  I cut a question mark from the Journey paper and layered the metal keyhole on top.  The keyhole was colored with Iced Coffee to match the Claw Feet.

JenMatottGraphic45 - 11

I used a Mixed Media Stencil in brick from the 10 ct. 101 Mixed Media Stencil pack 
and some Whipped Spackle through the brick stencil.  I did this to all 3 sides.

JenMatottGraphic45 - 9

Adding Steampunk Gelatos® Colors with lots of water created this drip effect.

JenMatottGraphic45 - 15

Finally, I colored the inside of the lid with the same Steampunk set and stamped using a Stamper's Big Brush Pen in black and the Topography 1 stamp set. 

JenMatottGraphic45 - 19

Inside the box is a pillow of velvet fabric and a nest with metal wings to complete the Steampunk feel.

1. First, I added Chalkboard Paint to the top and bottom portion of one of the tags from the Graphic 45 Tag Album.

2. Then, I mix 1 part Chalkboard Paint to 2 Parts Glaze blending with water until smoothie like consistency.

3. Adhere the Rare Oddities Patterned Papers on top of each other with Gel Medium.

4. Before completely dry, tear portions of the top layer of paper to reveal the bottom layer.

5. Add Drips of Chalkboard Paint mixture with a dropper tool.

TiffGraphic2Corrected

6. The next step is easy, simply adhere die-cut apothecary bottles with Gel Medium.

7. Adhere the Graphic 45 Rare Oddities Chipboard to the bottles with Gel Medium & trim excess. 

8. Add a thick coat of Gel Medium around the Chipboard labels.

9. Now, this is when the magic happens. Heat Set the Gel Medium until it BUBBLES!!!! Yes, you WANT air bubbles! I loved discovering this happy mistake :)

10. Outline the bottles with a PITT Artist Pen Black (M).

11. Now, be brave and add some sort of handwritten sentiment on the tag with the Stamper's Artist Pen in White. I layered my sentiment with a Metallic PITT Artist Pen Gold. Now, you just have to adhere the finished Apothecary bottles to the finished tag!

So what do you think?! I cannot wait to add this finished tag to a bottle of wine for a host gift!

Thanks for hopping by,

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.

IMG_6676  IMG_6677

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.

IMG_6686

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

IMG_6688

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!)

IMG_6702

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.

Supplies used

  • Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils (green 168 for leaves,red/ orange 117, red 121, orange 111, yellow 107,blue 152, purple 125, green 162, teal 156, silver 251 for lettering)
  • Chalkboard Paint
  • Gel Medium
  • PITT® Artist Pen(s) XS black 199 and silver 251
  • mini Mixed Media Journal
  • vintage book paper 
  • Doodlebug Sprinkles enamel dots
