New Bird & Winter Trees

Winterbird24 (2)

Hello my crafty friends! Linsey here today sharing my last guest designer post for this incredible company Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®. I've enjoyed my time with you all so very much and thank you for the amazing experience! Now, on to my project! I was inspired by a children's construction paper craft I saw on the internet 2 years ago and decided this was the perfect occasion to finally try it myself.  My translation is this 9x11 mixed media canvas panel that definitely cured my early winter blues!

I really loved creating this one and here's how it came together. I started by laying down 6 shades of Gelatos® on watercolor paper then spritzed with water and blended with my fingers. This will be the bird.

Minimalist Valentine Card

LisaAdametz-MinimalistHeart-1

Hey everyone, Lisa with you today and I have a fun minimalist mixed media Valentine card to share.  Most people tend to think that with mixed media it's all about tons and tons of layers, right? Well, with this card I really wanted to try to try to keep it as simple as possible BUT also showcase some of our amazing products without making the card super thick. This card isn't hard to make at all and is FLAT! So no extra postage!! Woohoo!

Black and white dog

Hi everyone! I can't believe this is my final blog post. I've had loads of fun with Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® and hope you've been inspired to make lots of art as a result. Recently, I've been doing a lot of creating in my black and white journal. Working in two colors (well, three since I use grey) can either be a bit of a challenge or refreshingly simple.

Christmas Star!

Wm star

Hi there everyone!  Today I'm sharing with you a mixed media piece that can be done in no time.  I made a bunch of these this year as Christmas gifts and I think I might keep on going to get a head start for next year ;)  Here are the steps and all the details you need to make this festive piece:

I started off with a piece of wood.  I sanded down the really rough edges and then used a generous amount of Gesso for my base.  I cut some paper, crumpled it all in my hand and adhered it to the wood block using some Gel Medium.  Then I added some Gelatos® to bring out the texture in the crumpled paper.

December Art Journal with Rachel Kleinman

With all the pressures and deadlines of the holiday season it becomes difficult to make time for yourself and the things you enjoy. Last year I created a December art journal, which gave me a space to play with my paints, pens, and papers without any commitment, deadline, or guidelines. It was my "me-time" place and I absolutely loved it, AND... I even finished that journal! Now I'm going to start my December 2014 art journal!

FB tag post 1

Hi everyone! Christine here.  Today's project was inspired by my three-year-old nephew. We'll be opening gifts together on Christmas morning and I want him to be able to find his own gift under the Christmas tree, despite not being able to read quite yet. Like you, I have a number of gifts to tag and wanted something personal, but simple. And I wanted to use supplies I already had. Voila, Christmas Photo Tags were born!
