Hi crafty friends! It's Lisa with you today and I'm super excited to kick this week off with your first project here at the Design Memory Craft Blog. We've got a really awesome week planned for you, so I hope you'll be checking to see all of the DT's amazing work this week. :)

As you can see above I created something kind of interesting. It's a mixed media collage piece on a piece of wood using TONS of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products and the gorgeous Unity Stamp called Harmony Girl. She's stunning.

Here are a few of my steps to creating this piece:

1:  Cover the wood piece with selected pieces of paper, creating your layout. Then cover the wood with Gel Medium and the paper with Gel Medium. Allow to dry.

 

StormPic1

 

2:  Create a mixture of Gesso and Chalkboard Paint and apply to surface of panel in random areas creating a look that is appealing and less "white".

 

StormPic2

 

3: Apply Chalkboard Paint to edges of wood panel and also allow paint to drip on random areas of surface.

 

4: Stamp image onto tissue paper using Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black #199, cut out and apply to panel with Gel Medium.

5:  Using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, Stamper's Big Brush Pens, and the Deluxe Waterbrush color in the image.

6: Shaving bits of the Paper Crafter Crayons™ off using a craft knife place around image and melt to panel front using a craft iron.

7: Stamp the sentiment using Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black #199. Embellish with Washi Tape, sequins, and rub-ons. Use Glass Bead Glitter Gel on umbrella for added interest and texture. See close up below:

I love how easily this came together. (Don't let all the steps fool ya!) :)

Hey everyone, Mou here with the winners of September 2014 Take the Challenge with Mou:

1. Chark  said... (posted on my blog due to typepad issues)

Hi, Mou, fun challenge! I hope you don't mind, but it won't take my link over at the Design Memory Craft blog either. I submitted it twice on different days...hmmm...here's hoping! http://glitterinmykitchen.blogspot.com/2014/09/were-off-to-see-wizard.html#comment-form

7:11 PM

2. This was wonderful challenge, Mou. Usually I don't keep time limit for my creativity, sometimes I finish in an hour or sometimes half done project laying on my table for a week. Yes, but I do like to stick to my commitment for DT projects. :) I finished my project for this challenge in 25 mins. Kept it simple, even though I tempted to add 'some more'. It was inspiration from your video here. Link to my project:http://nagaonkarshilpa.blogspot.in/2014/09/30-minutes-project.html

A Little Fun in the Sun with Terri

DSC_0019

Aaaah!  Summer is here.  In my house that means sunshine, time at the pool, friends, and fun!  I thought I would play with my "stuff"  while watching the kids have some fun in the sun.  I made a fun little card that I can send off to the grandparents.

Quick and easy.  Let me show you how.  I began with a card made from Bazzill smooth white cardstock.  Using the roll of tape on the desk I traced a circle in the center of the front of the card.  Carefully I painted the inside of the circle with Gesso.  Once dry, I sketched a sandcastle in the center.

The wind-bell decoration

IMG_7779

Hi everyone!  Madoka here.  I would like to share  my first work as Guest Designer.

This is called "Furin" in Japan.

It's a wind-bell which is hung under the eaves and makes a sound when receiving a wind. It is made of glass or metal so that it makes cooler-feeling sound.

Japanese enjoy the sound and go through a sticky hot summer.

Penny Black Blog Hop - Day 4 with Jen Matott

10345845_10204099677311919_1259356990906209029_nAs the summer sun begins to rise and the temps heat up, what better way to beat the heat than crafting! Join us all this week for a special collaboration with Penny Black. We're sharing fun projects here on our blog using Penny Black stamps AND you'll find projects from the Penny Black designers on their blog featuring our Paper Crafter Crayons and Double Scoop Gelatos. We want you to join in the fun, too, so don't miss the giveaway details at the end of this post.

Jen Matott here for Day 4 in our Blog Hop!  I have a fun project that I did using many of our Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products. 

PennyBlack_JenMatott7Using this gorgeous Penny Black Poppy Stamp, I created a background of Gelatos colors in Mango, Margarita Mix, and Watermelon (from the Designer Tropical set) by applying them dry to a thick mixed media paper from Marco's Paper.

40-311

PennyBlack_JenMatott4I spritzed with water and tipped the paper so that it ran on one side and then tipped it the other way to let it run the other side.  One dry, I add a stamped image.

PennyBlack_JenMatott2
I stamped the image with a Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black.  I mixed up some Gelatos®  Double Scoop® Snow Cone with Whipped Spackle with the Tool kit and put it through a stencil. 

PennyBlack_JenMatott6

I used my heat gun to warm up the paper (it's 100% cotton) on a heat resistant surface.  While the heat gun is concetrated on one area of the poppy, I colored with the Paper Crafter's Crayons.  I used a variety of reds and oranges layered while heating.  The colors are so vibrant and intensify when melted!

PennyBlack_JenMatott3

Just using my heat gun and some of  the fun Paper Crafter's Crayons, I created a vibrant, summery piece of artwork!  What can you do with the crayons?

Supplies:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® colors in Tropical Designer Colors #770162 & Double Scoop® Snow Cone #770257
