Hi AJ back again to share another card using the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® PITT® Pastel pencils.
I just love coloring with the PITT® Pastel Pencils- they make coloring so easy for someone who's a bit challenged in that arena! I have used Hero Arts Flower Text stamp here for my card, and several colors of the PITT® Pastel Pencils.
Hello! Dana Tatar here today sharing another project as a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Guest Designer. I've been seeing a lot of fantastic art featuring faces and wanted to join the fun! Drawing smiley faces and stick figures are challenging for me, so I knew that I was going to need a guide to help me.
Hi everyone, it's Anita and today I want to share a layout with you. I only had two small photos of my girls from this Easter (this was pre-digital era) so I wanted to use a lot of color and texture, but not neccesarily a ton of "stuff" that would overshadow my photos.
I started by using Gelatos® to color modeling creme and applied it to my background paper using a stencil.
Hello everyone! Nikky here. Today I want to share this lovely project with you. I picked up this great little house (it's actually a money box but I covered the slit in the roof) along with an MDF plaque at a craft show recently for a couple of pounds (yes, bargain!) and I've been waiting to use them together with my favourite Faber products ever since!
Swarup here with a new project for you all. Am so glad my previous post-Sketchbooks -Gelatos inspired quite a few of you all to give the medium a try. I can assure you it's totally fun and no attempt can be a failure. Just keep at it!
As my term as Guest designer draws to a close , I realised that I had not shared a single page from my art journal with you all. Ever since I have been on this team,I have, almost exclusively been using Faber Castell products on my pages. here is a look at one of those..
Here are some pictures showing you the process of art journalling..
Hi everyone, Anita here today to share a layout with you. I love to add a lot of texture to my layouts. Normally this means that I add way too much stuff to my pages and then I can't fit them into the page protectors. I have gotten so bad that I can only get 12 layouts into a D-ring album!! Soooo,, I am trying to use less of the fat embellishments and use more in the way of visual texture with paint, color and such.
Today I want to share with you how to use a stamp and gesso to add some texture to your projects, and how to create your own custom bling!
Hi everyone! Today I decided to go for some good old fashioned watercolouring. I love watercolours, they can add a really soft and delicate tone to your work...but I also love bringing an edge to it as well if I can.
Hi everyone, it's Anita here and I want to share a layout I made using a variety of Faber-Castell® products. I love adding visual texture to my layouts using pens and markers. It is a great way to add a lot of detail without adding a lot of bulk (which is a big problem with me!)
A great way to make a die-cut sticker pop off the page is to simply outline it with a contrasting color as I have done here. I used my Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Cobalt Turquoise around the outside of my die cut and I used my PITT® Artist Pen in Black on the inside.
Hello, friends! Vivian here with my third tutorial as a Guest Designer here on the blog. I've been having so much fun with you and am thrilled about all the new connections we've been able to make with each other!
Today I have a video tutorial focusing exclusively on our PITT Pastel Pencils. In it, there are a lot of tips to share for papercrafters and budding artists. And even then, we really will just touch the tip of all the myriad possibilities with this medium.
Here's a shot of a pastel painting that I share in the latter portion of the video.
My beautiful 7 pound rat dog rescue/miracle is the lovely model haha!
And here's a link to the video tutorial, an introduction to pastels!

If you're interested, I have more details on getting started with drawing and honing your observational skills on my blog today.
is a papercrafter, mixed media artist, enthusiastic student of
watercolor, and produced writer. Outside of these passions, she enjoys
just hangin' with her husband, frolicking with her dogs, and all things
which keep her present, including occasional pretty drinks. You can
find her at several locales in the ether - her blog, youtube, facebook, twitter, and pinterest.
I just love the chance to get all inky and messy for these Design Memory Crafts posts, mixed media has always always been my big love but I rarely get chance to do much of it these days so it's a real treat for me to sit and have a play - and I am so lucky that I am part of this fabulously talented team and able to use such an awesome range of products and show you what they can do! In fact I get so wrapped up in what I'm doing I go like the clappers and usually forget to take photos!
This art journal page was such a joy to make and I think I used ALL my Design Memory Craft products all in one place so I hope I didn't go too mad!
