Mixed media Art Journal pages with Rita Barakat

RitaBarakatMixedMediaArtJournalGrace Hey there creatives Rita Barakat here and today I want to talk to you about layers! One of the things about art journals and mixed media is anything goes! I want to show you how I started these pages in my art journal with left overs! Yes left overs! When I have paint or Gesso leftover on my paint brush or spatula while working on a project I wipe it on another page on my art journal for future use. Yes, sometimes I like to start with a clean canvas, but sometimes I don't- it makes it a little bit of a challenge but also more interesting.

Halloween Mixed Media Card


Hi Creatives! 

Happy Autumn! Best time of year in my neck of the woods where the weather turns crisp, the trees change to beautiful colors and we can break out the warm sweaters and hot cocoa! It's the shortest season yet the one I wish would last longer!

The project that I'll be showing you this week is for a Halloween mixed media card. As a kid, my mother always instilled in us to send mail. Thank You notes, Birthday cards, Sympathy cards, Thinking of You cards. Whatever the occasion was, she would always send a card in the mail. And I think that form of communication is really starting to fade away, which totally bums me out. I love getting mail (other than bills, of course!) Who doesn't like to go to their mailbox and open it to see a nice card from somebody special?

"Create" Art Journal cover by Ann Corbiere-Scott


Hi, Ann Corbiere-Scott here-and I am thrilled to share one last artsy project before my time as a Guest Designer for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft is done. I have had the absolute BLAST stretching my creative muscle along side some of the most talented in our industry! I love to art journal and have art journals aplenty in a wide array of sizes and types. I enjoy creating imaginative covers as much as I do the pages within. I had this idea of coupling wood veneer pieces, book paper, and gelatos! I am madly in love with it! Hope you are inspired to give this technique a try-it is super fun!

Here we go!

I Love You-Sweet steampunk layout with video by Valerie Ouellet


Hi everyone!

I'm back with a sweet steampunk layout. I used the new Gelatos® Steampunk kit. I love the mix of colors of this kit.

First, I made a watercolor background with Gelatos® Snowcone, Cotton Candy, Aqua Dolce. After, I sticked some pieces of paper to create dimensions behind the photo. I added a little bit of gesso white with spatula.

Watercolor Layout with Gelatos Double Scoop


Hello Crafters!

Zoey here, and I want to show you an easy layout I made using Gelatos® Double Scoop® !
The reason why I am obsessed with Gelatos® Double Scoop® is the fact that they are bigger than normal Gelatos®, this not only mean that they will last longer, but they also have a bigger surface that I can use as color palette..and it is perfect for me as I love to use the brush straight on the top of the Gelatos®

I started by adding Whipped Spackle through one of the new Stencils 10ct 201 Collection. I didn't want a bulk effect, so I carefully removed the excess of Whipped Spackle.
Whipped Spackle is so soft that it will be so easy to add it to your project!

Texture Luxe Skins on a Scrapbook Page with Jen


P1030737Want a gorgeous metallic surface to cut into shapes and add as embellishments?  Well, I have a technique for you!  This was so fun (if you have a little patience and room to leave it to dry!)... Those pie wedges on the page are Texture Luxe skins!  What is a skin?  Well, acrylic mediums are plastic-based and when they dry on a non-stick surface, they can be peeled off and create a "skin" of medium to cut shapes from!

Take the Challenge with Mou, September 2015 Edition

Hi everyone, Mou here! I'm back with Take the Challenge with Mou with the September 2015 edition.

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.  

For September, my challenge for you is to alter something, anything you already have.

During our move, a lot of forgotten items were rediscovered. One was this wooden letter "M". I had some paper stuck on it but nothing special. With my stash of mixed media supplies, I decided to alter that letter to suit my current aesthetics. Here's the final result.


Here are the supplies I used to alter my wooden monogram.

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents & Tools: Gesso, Gel Medium, Whipped Spackle, Texture Luxe™ Gold, Texture Gems™ 3ct Metallics, Stencils 10 ct. 101  and 10 ct. 201 collections,  Gelatos Tool set

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®: RED set, BLUE set

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pens: BLACK

Others: wooden letter, patterned paper, tissue, string, stamps.


Here's how you can go about altering your letter.

Cover the letter with a layer of patterned papers and seal it off with Gel Medium.

Whitewash with Gesso.

Add texture with circles stencil from Stencils 10 ct. 101 set using Whipped Spackle.

When dry, color with Gelatos®. Blend colors with water. Let some colors drip down.

When dry, rub some Texture Luxe™ Gold to accentuate the texture.


Ink up stamps with BLACK Stamper's Big Brush pen. Stamp all around.

Tie some string to the letter.

Attach some tissue paper here and there to add interest to the wooden letter with Gel Medium. Also attach some patterned paper cutouts.


Choose a bird from the birds stencil from 10 ct. 201 set and apply Whipped Spackle through it. You can choose your favorite stencil that fits the look you are going for.

Using Texture Gems™ 3ct Metallics GOLD, create small dots to embellish the bird. Let dry thoroughly.


Attach a favorite saying to the letter to finish.

Don't forget to share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to this challenge post with link to your project image(s) by Sunday, 9/20 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.

The prize for this challenge is: One pack of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stencils 201 Collection.

Don't forget to check back on Monday, 9/21 to see if YOU won! Good luck to all!
