How about a Shamrock shake? And the winners of March Take the Challenge


Hi everyone, Mou here with today's post! It's an art journal page. We are not Irish, but living here in the U.S., we are touched by many cultures and their celebrations in one way or another. For instance, on St. Patrick's Day, the kids have to wear something green to school and we love having Shamrock shakes from McDonald's... and I think it's great to have these opportunities to learn about other countries and cultures.

 To create this page, I took the following steps:

Attach old book paper to journal page with Gel Medium.

When dry, apply a coat of Gesso.

Sketch a drink cup with straw.

Color the page with Gelatos®colors: Lavender, Red Cherry, Mango, Pistachio, Blueberry, Grape, Coconut, Aqua Dolce, and Black Cherry. Blend with waterbrush.


Journal next to the cup with PITT® artist pen BLACK.


Dot the page with Stamper's Big White pen to finish.


Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents:  Gesso, Gel Medium,

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®: Blueberry, Grape (BLUE set); Lavender, Red Cherry (RED set); Mango (YELLOW set); Pistachio (GREEN set); Aqua Dolce (50's DINER); Coconut (NEUTRALS set); Black Cherry (STEAMPUNK set)

Hope you enjoyed today's post and would journal about the big and little things about how other cultures impact your lives!

And now, the winners of  March 2015 Take the Challenge with Mou...

Watercolored Animal Stack!


Hello Blogosphere!

It's Tiffany here today and I have a video tutorial showing you how I used my most favorite coloring medium, the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, to create this cute birthday card for Lawn Fawn's 5th Birthday!

What's not to love about these awesome pencils? Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils are so many things.

  1. Water Soluble, so they glide onto wet surfaces!
  2. Waterproof once dry, which is great for adding layers and depth!
  3. Lightfast, so they never fade!
  4. They're as precise or blended as you want them to be!
  5. The leads never break when sharpened.
  6. Their triangular grips ensure they don't roll around on your desk!
  7. You can use them with all of the other mediums in the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Mix & Match product line!

I could go on & on, but really just watch the video and you'll see just how easy it is to color with these!

Hi everyone, Mou here with today's project for you!


To make this tag, I used:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents: Gesso, Gel Medium, Texture Luxe Gold 

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®: Cotton Candy, Blueberry, Grape (BLUE set); Lavender (RED set); Iced Chai, Black Cherry (STEAMPUNK set) ; Metallic Gelatos GOLD & SILVER

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos Mist Maker Set

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mixed Media Stencils 101: Dots, Hexagons

May Arts ribbon # 516-4-02 4" x 10Y Jute & Wire

May Arts ribbon # 433-14-10 1/4" x 15Y Lace

May Arts ribbon # SK-125-01 Silk

May Arts ribbon # 368-15-01 1.5" x 30Y Polyester

Others: Sizzix Bigz L Die - Tag; die-cutting system; cardstock, tissue, old book page, stamp, embellishments from my stash, thread, sewing machine, stapler, needle, beads

Now let me walk you through the steps.


Diecut tag and create a base with layers of cardstock, book paper, tissue, etc. using Gel Medium. Add a decorative edge with stitching.


Whitewash the background with a coat of gesso.


Rub various Gelatos colors on the tag and blend parts of it with your fingers and some with wet paint brush.


Using a palette knife and the dots stencil, apply Gold Texture Luxe paste near the top right part of the tag.


Layer jute and lace trims on the tag and secure with stapler.


Cut about 12" of silk ribbon and color it with Gelatos colors and blend by misting with water.


Once the water dries, tie the ribbon into a bow and attach to tag.


Cut various lengths of silk and polyester ribbons. Fold them in halves lengthwise and straight stitch along the open edge. Pull the thread to scrunch up the ribbon and sew it in the center to make them look like flowers. Color the flowers with various shades of Gelatos.


Embellish around the flower cluster with buttons, pins, beads, etc, securing them in place with Gel Medium. Apply Texture Luxe Gold paste with plalette knife through hexagon stencil near the bottom of the tag to finish.

I hope you enjoy today's tutorial and have fun hopping. Good luck to all!

The Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Texture Luxe in gold is gorgeous!  Actually, ALL three colors are gorgeous but I used Gold on this board.   Using the Gelatos® Steampunk color set was used first through the new Texture Stencils.  I used the hexagons and dots for this page. Using a dauber, I put the color through the stencil.
