Beautiful Tag

Hi crafty friends it's Lisa with a fun tag for you today using just a few supplies for a WOW effect!

BeautifulTag

Tags are really great to make as an alternative to a card or a canvas. Let's get started: 

I started with a large tag and just three colors of Gelatos® in Snow Cone, Metallic Melon, and Banana.

Round Robin Journal with Jen Matott (AND Ustream winner)

P1010630

Have you ever participated in a traveling/ Round Robin swap before?  I used to years ago while active on Scrapbook.com, but haven't in a loooong time.  When a friend started a journal Round Robin swap, I was in!  We chose our own topic and journal and then we send it on to a designated person in our group for them to add to it!  It's exciting and fun to see the journals as we get them and create in each one.  It was hard to let go of this baby at first but I really loved getting someone else's to create in.  Here is a peek at my journal before I mailed it on to my buddy!

Patriotic Layout by Tonya Gibbs

Patriotic Layout by Tonya Gibbs

We recently celebrated our Independence Day here in the USA.  I love to see everyone dressed in their red, white & blue to show their patriotism. My Sister In-law shared this photo of her and her beautiful daughter.  Since my niece is all dolled up like a pageant queen, I wanted my layout to resemble a parade float.   The colors needed to be rich and vibrant, but feminine and soft, so I turned to my stash of Gelatos®. Their creamy texture and rich pigments were just what I needed to make this layout pop!

When I use Gelatos® I'm often asked these two questions:

Take the Challenge with Mou, July 2014

Hi everyone, Mou here  and welcome to the seventh 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. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.

This month's challenge is to create something you don't usually create. It could be style, colors, theme, products, anything you don't create often.

For me, it's Steampunk. I like the look but don't try doing it myself. Here's my take:

FCJuly2014TakeTheChallengeProject_MouS

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso

Here are some close-ups of my page:

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.

Scribble Page by Jen Matott

Jen3

As a kid,I loved to doodle, scribble, and draw.  I still love it!  Scribbling gets a bad rap from adults.  It's discouraged by adults because we think it's not really art.  But as an art teacher, sometimes scribbles are very artistic!  They get our hand warmed up, they can be spontaneous and just darn fun!  I never discourage scribbles except when students are supposed to be drawing realistically.  Here is a page in my journal that I created scribbles as the main part of the page!

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

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Paper Crafter Crayons™ in Yellow/Red #770520
