Hi Faber-Castell Peeps!! It’s me, Karen, here again to show you what I love about my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft pens and crafter crayons! I may not be the best at sketching and drawing, but I love to cut and tear paper into shapes to make projects.
This week, I sketched a sailboat and cut it out of some of book paper and then my favorite scrapbook paper. I glued the pieces down to my canvas with Faber-Castell Gel Medium, sealed the whole thing with Gel medium, and let it dry. What I love about using gel medium is the fact that it isn’t sticky like glue. I also love that when I am working on my finishes, I can actually ‘erase’ pen marks for a little bit since they sit on top of the medium and dry a little bit slower!
Hello, Olga Siedlecka here. I feel more than honoured to be here and I’m so exited to share with you my first project prepared as a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® guest designer. I’m a addicted to a joined smell of coffee, cookies and a fresh magazine. I always cherish such moments of relaxation as a sheer pleasure. Moreover, I usually find flicking through fashion pages very inspiring. I also look upon each and every color magazine as if it were first and foremost my source of illustrations and texts to be used afterwards. This time I decided to the mixed media portrait using wonderful Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® media.
I love the look of metallics on a neutral background. This look is very easy to achieve with Mix & Match products from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®! I found this old picture of my family and I thought it would be fun to do a single picture 8" x 8" vintage scrapbook page.
The little one is me... so I guess I'm a little vintage myself.
Hi everyone Beck Beattie again here sharing another Scrapbook page to inspire you with yummy Faber-Castell® Design Memory Crafts® products.
I have really been enjoying exploring the mix and match system working with differnet products that work just so well together. Today I'm really featuring the use of Gelatos and how you can add LOADS of colour into your projects using thes nifty sticks of colour goodness.
While going through my photos trying to find that 'perfect' photo, I came across this pic of friends' girls from when we went duck feeding with all the kids one day. I love how sweet the photo is and can't wait to Scrapbook it a second time so I can gift them one each.
Here is a video so that you can see how the background is created, and the layout comes together, while learning some techniques along the way.
I have to apologise for the occassional video shaking as my new camera set up just wasnt working, but I really wanted to show all the techniques so left it in.
For today's project I have used:
Faber-Castell® Design Memory Crafts® Gelatos in Cotton Candy, Bubble Gum and Metallic Mint
I have teamed these up with the following Spellbinders® dies:
Gold Facets, Gold Majesty Circles, Standard Circles Small and Lacey Circles.
I have also used paper by Heidi Swapp, Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock, flowers from Kaisercraft and Manor House Creations, lace from Prima Marketing, sticker word from Jillibean Soup and tiny twine from Craft Queen.
I'd love to see you adding some colour into your projects, and please share with us on the Design Memory Crafts Facebook page here. I'd LOVE to see what you create!
Hi everyone! Mieko here. First of all, I am so exited to be part of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Guest Design Team for a second term. Today I would like to share with you all a Home décor project I made using New Textural accent medium, Chalkboard paint. Chalkboard Paint is a dynamic medium containing actual chalkboard properties when applied, great for contrast in mixed media projects.
I love little buckets and baskets for storing art supplies. I found these cute $1 buckets (I believe from Target) a while back and had them set aside to alter. When I saw the new Chalk Board Paint from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them! Chalk Board Paint, Gesso , Whipped Spackle and Gelatos® what a great combination!
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!
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.
Hi there Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® fans! Lisa back with you today sharing another fun (and a VALENTINE!) project. Well, I think so anyway. ;) I have lots of pictures to share, but don't let that scare you off, okay? GREAT!! Here we go...
