Happy Sunday... Hope you are all having a wonderful relaxing day..  Today I am going to show you  a fun project using the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Glaze in my background.  To start I needed to get my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®  Mixed Media Journal .. I used the square size.  Then using the circle dots Mixed Media stencil with the Texture Cards.. I love these cards.. they come with 8 different designs. This is my kind of heaven.

 Using the flat side of the Texture Card I spread some glaze over the stencil onto my Mixed Media board.  I did this just randomly in certain areas . Then I peeled off the stencil and using the textured part of the cards I started to swipe down and across leaving lines in the circles and other areas of my Mixed Media board.  You need to let this dry.

Then the color FUN begins.. I added the Gelatos®, This is where you can add whatever color you like.. in random fashion.. don't think about it too much.. just have FUN!

Then like magic.. I used a baby wipe and started to spread the Gelatos® around my board.  I love how easy it is using the baby wipes and not much to clean up or wipe down.

This is what you will end up with.. see how wonderful the glaze turned out.. the Gelatos® only stay where the Glaze was not on the board.  Getting a wonderful texture for my background. I LOVE IT!

Now for the Art.. Using the PITT® Artist Pen (B)  in black I started to draw my feather drawing.. adding design where I wanted it.

I love how you can see the background through the different parts of the feather.

Then Using the  Pitt® Artist Pen ( Big Brushes) I added some highlight details.. so the feather stands out more..

Canvas Corp Blog Hop Day 5- Jen

Hi everyone and welcome to day five of the blog hop with Canvas Corp! To win Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®'s $50 prize, comment below each day this week.  One random winner will be selected on April 20th. 

Hi everyone!  Jen here to share with you a project that creates with Canvas Corp bag and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products.   FrontofbagI started with a hexagon stencil from the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mixed Media Stencil 101 Collection and used Gelatos® Colors Brights set to create areas of shape and color.

GelatosonbagColor inside the stencil and then blend with finger.  I rub in a circlular direction to create a mixed effect.

I used the same stencil to dab Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard Paint over to create some black areas.  Once dry, I added Art GRIP® Color Pencil in white over the chalkboard painted shapes as well as PITT® Artist Pen in Black around some of the Gelatos® shapes.

Here's a view of the back of the bag... I just added some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard Paint through the hexagon stencil and drew with the ArtGrip colored pencil in white.

On the front of the bag, I colored with the Gelatos® Colors in Snow Cone from the Brights set.  I tipped the bag up ( I suggest putting a piece of cardboard inside the bag to create a flat, solid surface to paint on) and sprayed water to create drips down the surface.  Some text was stamped using a Stamper’s Big Brush Pen in black over some areas.

Next, I added Texture Luxe™ in Gold to some chipboard shapes from UmWowStudio using a foam dabber in the Gelatos Tool Set.

Using that same hexagon stencil, I added some of the Texture Luxe™ in Gold through using a palette knife.  Allow to dry completely.

Draw a shape (I created a bee shape) with a PITT® Artist Pen and use as a guide to backstitch using colored floss.

Canvas Corps Blog Hop Day 3 - Tiffany

TiffCanvasCorpsMain1

Hi everyone and welcome to day one of the Blog Hop with Canvas Corp! To win Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft's $50 prize, comment below each day this week.  One random winner will be selected on April 20th.  

Hey Blogosphere, it's Tiffany for Day 3 of our Blog Hop with Canvas Corp and today I'm showcasing the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® product line with an 8 x 10 Stretched Natural Canvas. I definitely went out of my comfort zone to create on such a large-to-me surface, but I had fun! What matches more perfectly with a Cityscape Canvas than the Manhattan Gelatos®? Nothing, right? Oh, I usually create Video Tutorials, but decided to make a Photo Tutorial for you:

TiffCanvasCorps1

1. Create a Cityscape Mask from cardstock & then dab Gel Medium through the Brick Background Stencil (Stencils 10ct 201 Collection) using a foam brush. Allow to dry.

2. Color background with the Gelatos® Designer Colors - Manhattan

3. Blend with a wet brush & then dab away the excess color with a towel to reveal the Gel Medium resist.

4. Trace Cityscape Mask outline using an Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencil (black).

 

TiffCanvasCorps2

5. Paint Cityscape with Chalk Board Paint medium.

6. Paint windows with Gesso medium. Allow to dry.

 

TiffCanvasCorps3

7. Dab Texture Luxe™ Gold through Key & Fleur Di Lis Stencils (Stencils 10ct 201 Collection) using a foam dauber. Dab a little throughout the canvas to add more texture as well. Allow to dry.

8. Paint "home" with Chalk Board Paint medium onto the key with a fine paintbrush.

9. Splatter Chalk Board Paint medium across finished canvas & add some to the upper-left corner. Spray with a mini-mister (Essentials Tool Set) of water to all drips.  Allow to dry & then add embellishments!

Canvas Corp Blog Hop day 2 with Rita

RitaBarakat.com
Hi everyone and welcome to day two of the blog hop with Canvas Corp! Rita Barakat here and today I am sharing a Canvas Corp 6x6 Canvas Stitched Mini I decorated with a few of my girls. I had so many pictures I made a little video of the finished mini portfolio below (this is the cover)! Here are some tips and techniques I used...

RitaBarakat.com2 RitaBarakat.com4
 You can use Gesso or paint directly on the canvas with Gelatos® Colors! If you are doing a lot of fine detail you might want to use a thin layer of Gesso first - it gives you a smoother surface and a little more time to manipulate the colors.  
RitaBarakat.com3
I draw directly on the canvas, then spread the color with a wet paint brush. If I am covering a large surface, such as the background I grab Gelatos® Double Scoop®  and mist the surface instead of just using a wet paint brush.
RitaBarakat.com6
RitaBarakat.com5 All of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® textures worked on the canvas; with and without stencils. On the left I am using the Texture Luxe™ Gold  with a stencil. On the right I used the Chalkboard Paint for the wings (I love the contrast between the paint and Gelatos®) and the Glass Bead Glitter Gel with the stencil. Have you tried the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products on canvas yet? Here is my finished project...
