Crayon Resist Sketch


I have a new addiction and it's the fabulous Paper Crafter Crayons! These crayons are so highly pigmented and so strong that I love that I can press as hard as I want and it does not break inside the barrel! 

One of my favorite techniques is using the crayons as a resist medium which is what I did here.

Finishing Touches


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!

I *heart* mix and match

Celebrate you layout

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!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Take the Challenge with Mou, February 2014

Hi everyone, Mou here and welcome to the second 'Take the Challenge' of 2014! 

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. The following Monday, we will pick TWO winners randomly from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
It's February! Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Your challenge this month is absolutely simple...create any project related to Valentine's Day.
Here's my take. 
To make this card I used the following Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products:
Gelatos®: Metallic Mint
Paper Crafter Crayons: White (NEUTRAL pack)
PITT Artist pens: BLACK
Other products: cardstock, patterned paper, diecut, vellum, adhesive, lace trim, sewing machine, scissors
Let me walk you through the steps of how I made my card
I folded cardstock to make a 5.5" x 4.25" card. I cut some textured patterned paper to 5" x 3.5" and attached it to the card. Next, I applied some Gesso with palette knife from the Gelatos Tool set.
Once the Gesso dried, I rubbed some Metallic Mint Gelato® and blended it with wet brush.
I stitched a piece of lace trim to the card.
I dotted a themed diecut with white Paper Crafter Crayon to create a resist design.
Next, I colored the diecut with Art GRIP watercolor pencils, blended the colors with wet brush to reveal the dot design.
I attached the diecut to the card with foam tape and added a strip of heart print foiled vellum to the right, tucking it under the right edge of the patterned paper. Finally, I wrote the sentiment 'Be Mine' with PITT Artist pens on a piece of pink cardstock, cut a heart around it, and attached it to the card with foam tape. 
Here's a close-up.
Don't forget to share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to the challenge post with link to your project image(s) by Friday, 2/14 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.
The prizes for this challenge are: One set of 4 ct Gelatos® in the color of your choice and one Mini Journal Board.
Don't forget to check back on Monday, 2/17  to see if YOU won!
Good luck to all and Happy Valentine's Day!
