I'm Marie-Eve Bernard. This is my first post on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog as a member of the guest design team and I'm so thrill to be part of it! I hope to inspired you with my creations during the next four months!
Today, I want to share with you a layout that showcase Gelatos®, Stamper’s Big Brush Pen and Ice Texture Gems ™. I really love Gelatos®. Theses littles sticks makes me so happy! They are easy to use and we can use it in so many differents ways. In the step-by-step video, you will see who I have use them to create my background and alter my chipboards.
So there is my layout. The two stars on the photos are my wonderful husband , Laurent, and my oldest daughter, Delphine. On the photo, she's one...and now, I can't believe she's five and going to preschool in September. Times flies so fast!!
Hi everyone, Mou here today with an art journal page.
Summer is a time for going camping or RV-ing for many. My page is inspired by a camping staple: a lantern.
On this project, I used:
Others: Sizzix Die Rustic Lantern; die-cutting system; art journal, old book paper, patterned paper
And here are the steps.
With Gel Medium, attach some old book papers to your journal page. Attach a patterned paper block at the center. Color the page with Gelatos colors. Ink up stamp with Warm Grey Stamper's Big Brush pen and stamp around the page. Add some gesso on parts of the page and blend it in.
Layer the diecut lantern on the page with Gel Medium. Color the lantern with Scarlet Red Stamper's Big Brush pen and add shadowing with Black Cherry Gelatos color and highlights with Gesso. Add shadowing around the lantern using Warm Grey Stamper's Big Brush pen.
Cut text out of old book paper and attach it to the lantern. Draw a frame around it with pencil to finish.
Hope you enjoyed today's post and have fun creating with all the fun Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products this summer!
Hello Arty Souls! Sylwia (TandiArt) here with my first project as a Guest Designer:) I am so excited to be here, as products of Faber Castel Design Memory Craft® are just 'must have' for every artist and crafter:)
So for this first project I decided to make my favourite Fairy-Girl. She was inspired by my little babygirl, whose afro-hair is just unmanageable :D
I wanted to show you how to work with Faber- Castell Design Memory Craft ® Gelatos® and Chalk Board Paint on row wood. They all work great on this surface! Creamy consistency of Gelatos makes it very easy to spread them even on unprimed wood.
I have also video tutorial for you:
Firstly I applied a Black Chalk Board Paint with a brush.
Then I added Pistaccio, Orange Soda, Limoncello and Passion Fruit Gelatos® from Mix and Match Set Gelatos® Designer Colors- BALI
I also used Gelatos® with Stencils set 201
To add more dimension to my piece, I added Texture Gems™ Ice
I used following products of Faber-Castell Design memory Craft:
Orange Soda Gelatos®
Passion Fruit Gelatos®
Texture Gems™ Ice
Stamper's Big White Pen
Mixed Media Stencils 10ct 201 Collection
Mechanical Pencil 0.35mm
I hope you enjoyed the projects and got inspired!
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.
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.
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.
4. With an XS PITT® Artist Pen, randomly scribble draw flower and leaf outlines around painted shapes.
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!)
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.
I'm Valérie Ouellet from Quebec and I've been scrapbooking for 6 years now. I'm a stay-at-home mom happy to be taking care of 3 little monsters which are often the main subject of my layouts. While I'm creating, my style is quite lively and colorful and I tend to use watercolor often and medium.
I present you my first creation for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft as an invited DT. I'm honoured to be part of the team for the next 4 months.
Greetings, partners in crime ! As a new member of the Guest DT, I have the pleasure to reveal my first victim.
Since the featured product for this week is Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, I've decided to go wild and commit a page using this very efficient and yet fun supply.
As you may know, serial scrapbookers do have their own little rituals and weapons of choice. Mine is Gelatos® Colors. I’ve used this product many times and feel comfortable with the many ways to play with it.
So the watercolor pencils were new territory for me. I must admit I was a little sceptical at first. How could it possibly be so different from Gelatos® Colors ? I couldn’t be more wrong. I absolutely L-O-V-E-D playing with the color blending. So fun and versatile.
My favorite part : the watercolor pigments dissolve completely. I mean completely. No incriminating evidence left behind.
It was a delight. Beware, pages … I will use this new weapon anytime now.
Anyhow. Enough with the product. I’m obviously convinced. I’m pretty sure you will be too. Let’s get to the project. Here is how it went.
