With February just around the corner, it's time to get moving on those Valentine's Day projects! Today I'm sharing a sweet Valentine treat bag, perfect for filling up with candies or love notes ;)
Hi there crafty friends. It's Mindy, and I'm here to show you a page I made from my Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Mixed Media Art Journal.
Hello my crafty friends! Linsey here today sharing my last guest designer post for this incredible company Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®. I've enjoyed my time with you all so very much and thank you for the amazing experience! Now, on to my project! I was inspired by a children's construction paper craft I saw on the internet 2 years ago and decided this was the perfect occasion to finally try it myself. My translation is this 9x11 mixed media canvas panel that definitely cured my early winter blues!
I really loved creating this one and here's how it came together. I started by laying down 6 shades of Gelatos® on watercolor paper then spritzed with water and blended with my fingers. This will be the bird.
Hey everyone, Lisa with you today and I have a fun minimalist mixed media Valentine card to share. Most people tend to think that with mixed media it's all about tons and tons of layers, right? Well, with this card I really wanted to try to try to keep it as simple as possible BUT also showcase some of our amazing products without making the card super thick. This card isn't hard to make at all and is FLAT! So no extra postage!! Woohoo!
Hi! Dana Tatar here today sharing a set of chalkboard valentines. I started this project with a set of wood veneer hearts and used Chalkboard Paint, a Stamper's Big Brush Pen and PITT®Artist Pens to add color. I added dimensional metallic accents with the NEW Texture Gems. These valentines are quick and easy to create and fun to personalize!
Hey there artsy peeps Rita Barakat here with a little technique info for you! Did you know that Gelatos®Colors can be mixed with most mediums to make different color Gesso, Gel Medium, Whipped Spackle?
Did you know that you can use Gesso, Whipped Spackle, Gel Medium, Glass Bead Glitter Gel and Glaze with stencils to make a variety of textures on your projects?
Did you know that you can use Gelatos®Colors on top of dried Gesso and Whipped Spackle?
Did you know that you can use Stamper’s Big Brush Pen and PITT® Artist Pens on top on Gesso, Gel Medium, Glaze and more?

Hello everyone! It is with great sadness that I am writing this - my last blog post - as part of the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® mguest design team. It has been such an awesome three months! I have met some amazing artists and learnt so much from them. I have discovered the true potential of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products as I have tried to push their boundries as well as my own. It has been a great learning experience and I am so glad I got to do this!
Earlier this month I was fortunate enough to go to CHA - The Craft and Hobby Association mega show. The show is full of inspiration with arts and crafts manafacturers coming from all over theworld to showcase their products. There are also many workshops to learn from and the topics range from business to creating art to getting published in magazines.
Hi everyone! Lisa here with you today. And I'm happy to be back after being gone at CHA. It's always so fun to be there showing all the exciting new products for everyone, but it sure is awesome to be home.
So, now that I'm home I thought it would be fun to share a few of the new products with YOU! Just a little card, but it will give you an idea of what you have to look forward to. :)
Happy New Year everyone!! I hope your start of 2015 has been a great one so far! One final post from me before this design term is up! I created a cover for a mixed media journal. The word 'Inspire' has to be one of my favourite words! I am always inspired by art, and others so it was fitting to have it on the front of this journal cover.
Here's a little rundown of how it came to be...
so awesome and beautiful bag!
Super sweet Valentine goodie bag Rachel!! I just love the pretty colors you chose for the background and I totally agree, the glass bead glitter gel is must on practically everything I touch lol!! The vellum sentiment is a beautiful touch as well! Thanks for all your awesome inspiration over these past 4 months will Design Memory Craft--it's been such a wonderful journey and getting to know people like you better has been one of the BEST perks!! Hugs my friend and I'll see you around bloggy land and FB! <3
So pretty Rachel!
Beautiful card! Love the layered hearts and inky background!
Beautiful journal page, Mindy
Congrats to EVERYONE!!!!
