Rita Barakat here today and I had the pleasure of working with: Planner Add On - Weather 1 Be My Guest stamp set Partly Cloudy DieAren't these tiny stamps adorable?!?


Rita Barakat
I had such a fun time with these products I made this canvas tag and used the stamps in my planner.

RitaBarakat1
I am sure you keep a busy (crazy) schedule just like me!  Add a few PITT® Artist Pens and Stamper’s Big Brush Pens with these weather stamps make keeping a schedule so much more fun! So how about a tutorial on the tag?

RitaBarakat6
First I drew on the edges of this little canvas tag. I spread the color around with a wet paint brush and set aside to dry.

RitaBarakat4
I used the die to cut out these sweet clouds and sun. I cover the clouds with Whipped Spackle to make them look light an fluffy!

RitaBarakat5
I smashed a little Butter Cream and mixed it with Whipped Spackle for the sun. I used  Texture Gems ™  to outline the edges.

RitaBarakat3
I stamped the words "hello sunshine" directly on the little canvas, then added the sun and the clouds with a little Gel Medium. SUch a fun little project!

Did you know? with Rita Barakat

RitaBarakat.com Apron
Hey there artsy peeps! Rita Barakat here with my latest apron. Did  you know that you can use PITT® Artist Pens and Big Stampers Brush pens work on fabric? They are filled with India ink, which means they are odorless, waterproof, lightfast and archival. The images you make  stay bright and vibrant for many years to come. I have even thrown aprons in the wash with detergent and they come out beautifully - no change in the colors! I love that! This apron was made especially for one of my blog readers! I hope she loves it!

RitaBarakatApron
Because of the delicate fabric I did choose to use a little Gesso under the face. You have to test your fabrics if you choose to use them - thicker fabrics work quite well and don't bleed, but this particular fabric did (looks like she had chapped lips! LOL). No need to panic though, a little Gesso adds a stiffness to the fabric and keeps the marks in place - especially important when doing faces.

Here is a close up! I love products that have multi-purposes don't you? What will you do with your PITT® Artist Pens?

Blessings!
Rita

Canvas Corp Blog Hop Day 5- Jen

Hi everyone and welcome to day five of the blog hop with Canvas Corp! To win Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®'s $50 prize, comment below each day this week.  One random winner will be selected on April 20th. 

Hi everyone!  Jen here to share with you a project that creates with Canvas Corp bag and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products.   FrontofbagI started with a hexagon stencil from the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mixed Media Stencil 101 Collection and used Gelatos® Colors Brights set to create areas of shape and color.

GelatosonbagColor inside the stencil and then blend with finger.  I rub in a circlular direction to create a mixed effect.

Gelatos2
I used the same stencil to dab Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard Paint over to create some black areas.  Once dry, I added Art GRIP® Color Pencil in white over the chalkboard painted shapes as well as PITT® Artist Pen in Black around some of the Gelatos® shapes.

Bagdetail8

Here's a view of the back of the bag... I just added some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard Paint through the hexagon stencil and drew with the ArtGrip colored pencil in white.

Backviewofbag

On the front of the bag, I colored with the Gelatos® Colors in Snow Cone from the Brights set.  I tipped the bag up ( I suggest putting a piece of cardboard inside the bag to create a flat, solid surface to paint on) and sprayed water to create drips down the surface.  Some text was stamped using a Stamper’s Big Brush Pen in black over some areas.

  Bagdetails3

Next, I added Texture Luxe™ in Gold to some chipboard shapes from UmWowStudio using a foam dabber in the Gelatos Tool Set.

Luxe onbag

Using that same hexagon stencil, I added some of the Texture Luxe™ in Gold through using a palette knife.  Allow to dry completely.

Bagdetail10

Draw a shape (I created a bee shape) with a PITT® Artist Pen and use as a guide to backstitch using colored floss.
