Hi Loves, Tiare here.   Planning is all the rage and I am surely an avid planner and list maker.  However, as an artist I prefer to add my own little artsy touches to pages.  I especially like adding art to my lists or bullet journal pages.  The touch of color and beauty just makes the task a lot happier and more beautiful. 

Grab your Gelatos® Highlighters and let's make a "pretty" list.  Check out my quick video to see how:

Library Pocket Card and Gift Tag

Library Pocket 1 Watermarked

Hi Loves,Tiare here. A unique card and gift tag are sure gifts that will make the recipient smile.  Here is a fun way to jazz up your next gift giving experience. 

Grab your Gelatos® Iridescents and let's make a library pocket card and gift tag.  Let me show you how to make them. 

Library Pocket 1

First, be sure to Gesso both the library pocket and the tag.  Next, use Stamper’s Big Brush Pens:  Black, Violet, Cobalt Blue, Light Blue to create your backgrounds.  Draw color onto craft sheet, spritz with water and drag the library pocket and tag through the  color.  Do this one color at a time.

 

Library Pocket 2

Next grab your Ice Layers - Bubbles to create cool circle patterns.   Just color in the shapes with your Gelatos® Iridescents and activate with a water brush or rub in with your fingers. To make a fun overlapping pattern,  pick up Ice Layers and  place over previous circles.  I love how the Gelatos® Galaxy stands out, it is such a rich and creamy color. 

 

Library Pocket 3

Use Stamper’s Big Brush Pens:  Black #199 to add color on various circle stamps.  Stamp images on circles. Stamper's Big Brush Pens are perfect for stamping. You can also use the  ink to add detail to the edges of the tag and card.  Write a sentiment onto the library pocket and tag using Journaling Pitt®Artist Pens Medium Nib Black #199

 

Library Pocket 6 Watermarked

Lastly, add a cute dimensional flower to the library pocket and a fun ribbon to the tag. 

Tada!

Create Your Own Coloring Page

Coloring Page 4 Watermarked

Hi Loves. Tiare here.  I love coloring and today it appears to be all the rage.  However, I like "old school" coloring.  You know not so tiny, tons of details kinda coloring.   Most adult coloring books have many, tiny details, and sometimes my eyes just cannot take staring at those details for too long.  However, I still want to color.  So I thought, why not use my Scandinavia Mixed Media Stencils to create my own coloring page.  I don't always feel like doodling. However, stencils are perfect and they take the pressure off of needing to draw or doodle yourself.  You can layer and play with the patterns.  Woohoo!  So I did.  This was extremely satisfying.  

Grab your Gelatos® Iridescent and let's doodle and color.  Here's what I did. 

Coloring Page 1

First up, Gesso your entire page.  Grab your Scandinavia Mixed Media Stencils and trace the pattern of choice using Journaling Pitt®Artist Pens Medium Nib Black #199.  Be sure you use various patterns, shapes, sizes and don't forget you can overlap if you like. 

 

Coloring Page 2

Next, I colored in the shapes.  Just color in the shapes with your Gelatos® Iridescents and activate with a water brush.  I love how the Gelatos® Supernova makes the flowers really pop and adds a bright happy, fun feel to the page. 

 

Coloring Page 3 Watermarked

Finish it off by coloring the background with Gelatos® Iridescents and activate and spread with a water brush and by adding shimmering, colored pearls to the center of flowers. 

Tada!

An Art Journal Page with Gelatos® Color Passion Fruit

FCDMC_March2017_Tutorial1_PassionFruit_MouS

Hi everyone! Mou here today with an art journal page using Gelatos® Color Passion Fruit. Lately, I have been enjoying creating art journal pages outside an actual journal. I am using mixed media or watercolor paper as my base. Let me show you how I made this page, starting with the supplies you'll need.

SUPPLIES:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Colors: Passion Fruit, Caramel, Elderberry, Margarita Mix, Strawberry

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Pen BLACK

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent: Gel Medium, 102 Stencil CollectionTexture Gems™ 3ct Metallics

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft PITT Artist Pens Lettering Set: Jewel Brush

Other: mixed media paper, stamps, found papers, pencil

FCDMC_March2017_Tutorial1_PassionFruit_Step1_MouS

As crafters, we all have a stash for pretty supplies. I collect rubber stamps wherever I find them. It makes me feel connected to another artist when I make their art part of mine. Use the stamps that you have. Ink them up with the Stamper's Big Brush pen BLACK and stamp on the paper to cover the entire surface.

FCDMC_March2017_Tutorial1_PassionFruit_Step2_MouS

Tear small pieces of saved papers from old books, rejected artwork, scrap papers, etc. and attach a few pieces to the page with Gel Medium.

FCDMC_March2017_Tutorial1_PassionFruit_Step3_MouS

Next, to add some colors to the page - Passion Fruit is going to be today's main color and you can use other colors to make it stand out more. Having one color to focus on helps me develop the whole color scheme of the page.

FCDMC_March2017_Tutorial1_PassionFruit_Step4_MouS

The other Gelatos® Colors I'm using today are Caramel, Elderberry, Margarita Mix and Strawberry. Rub them on the page and blend them water.

FCDMC_March2017_Tutorial1_PassionFruit_Step5_MouS

Lay a stencil on the colored page and trace parts of it with pencil.

FCDMC_March2017_Tutorial1_PassionFruit_Step6_MouS

Freehand sketch a heart or another simple shape that you like with pencil. Add more colors around the heart and traced stencil shapes as shown.

FCDMC_March2017_Tutorial1_PassionFruit_Step7_MouS

Stamp a favorite quote with alphabet stamps and Stamper's Big Brush pen BLACK.

FCDMC_March2017_Tutorial1_PassionFruit_Step8_MouS

Add small dots with Texture Gems Metallics Gold to the page for some shine and texture.

FCDMC_March2017_Tutorial1_PassionFruit_Step9_MouS

Make marks on the page with PITT Artist pens Jewel Brush following the contours of the shapes to finish.

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and will try your own art journal page with Gelatos® Color Passion Fruit.

Passion Fruit Mosaic Page by Rachel

2017-02-25 12.27.40

I hope you are loving all the pink on the Design Memory Craft blog this month! This is Rachel Kleinman to continue with the happy color, specifically the Gelatos® Color of the Week: Passion Fruit.  Maybe you can tell I used quite a lot of pink Gelatos® on this journal page... couldn't help myself :)

2017-02-24 20.42.42

I started with a gesso'd page and drew in squares with Gelatos® Strawberry, Watermelon, Guava, Passion Fruit, and Blood Orange. I used a paintbrush with water to break down the pigments and paint in the squares. I love the smooth matte look of blended Gelatos®, it made for a gorgeous mosaic spread!

2017-02-24 21.36.10

Next, I added some small simple doodles throughout the page. I drew thin lines with a Black Paper Crafter Crayon™, thick lines with a Pink Madder Stamper's Big Brush Pen, circles with the Metallic Gold Pitt Pen and then just smeared some Pearl Texture Luxe™ with my finger.

2017-02-25 11.37.28

My favorite way to use the Glaze medium is to mix it with Gelatos® and apply it through a stencil. Here I mixed Glaze with chopped up Passion Fruit Gelatos® and the Mixed Media 102 Stencil. Now time to let everything dry completely!

2017-02-25 11.41.06

Gelatos® are so versatile... don't forget they work as a great water color, too! You can vary the strength of the color by adding more water to lighten it and less water to keep it more opaque. Here I scribbled some Black Licorice Gelatos® on my craft mat and mixed up the pigment with a wet paintbrush. Then I used the brush to flick splatters of black throughout my journal page.

2017-02-25 12.11.20

Finally, the last step! The White Stamper's Big Brush Pen was traced through this little flower stencil from the Scandinavian Stencil Collection. Lastly I added some writing with a Black Pitt Pen. I've been listening to The Beauty and the Beast soundtrack, so of course I had to add some lyrics to this!

Snow Birds Art Journal Page (Gelatos Color of the Week: Metallic Blueberry)

This week the Gelatos® Color of the Week is Metallic Blueberry and that beautiful shimmery blue color reminds me of winter so I went through my Gelatos stash and found some great colors that go with it to use for an art journaling page. Besides Metallic Blueberry, I choose Elderberry and Metallic Grape. 

Winter Colored Gelatos

 

First off, here's how the page turned out:

Snow Birds

Supplies: Gelatos - Metallic Blueberry, Elderberry, Metallic Grape; Glass Bead Glitter Gel, Gel Medium, Gesso, PITT Artist Pens - Raw Umber #180, Black #199, Tag, White Cardstock, Patterned Papers, Wreath Diecut, Sewing Machine Stitching, Brush, Palette Knife, Bird Stamp, Ribbon

 

Here's what I did to create it.

I collaged some papers onto the page using Gel Medium. Once it was dry I scribbled my Metallic Blueberry Gelatos over it.
Snow Birds

 

I sprayed on a spritz of water and used a foam brush to move the Gelatos over the page.
Snow Birds

 

Next, I mixed together some Glass Bead Glitter Gel and Metallic Blueberry Gelatos.
Snow Birds

I applied it with a palette knife randomly all over the page.
Snow Birds

 

Then I mixed the Glass Bead Glitter Gel with Elderberry Gelatos and applied it to the page as well.
Snow Birds

 

Then I did the same thing with  Glass Bead Glitter Gel and Metallic Grape Gelatos.
Snow Birds

Doesn't that look so yummy!! I added a touch of just plain  Glass Bead Glitter Gel and let the whole page dry.
Snow Birds

 

Next, I diecut a wreath out of wood veneer paper, white washed it with some diluted Gesso, and then added a bit of  Glass Bead Glitter Gel all over it.
Snow Birds

 

Next, I took one of my favorite bird stamps and rubbed the Metallic Blueberry Gelatos over it. Then (and this is where the magic happens) I huffed on it a few times.  You know, the way you do to fog up your glasses or a window. Then I stamped it onto a piece of white cardstock.  If the image wasn't dark enough I'd repeat the same process on top of it.
Snow Birds

 

I used a Raw Umber #180 PITT Artist Pen to color the bird's legs on the stamp and then stamped them onto the paper.
Snow Birds

 

I repeated that process to create 3 birds.
Snow Birds

 

Next, I took an XS tip Black #199 PITT Artist Pen and made sketch marks around the birds.

Snow Birds - CloseUp

 

And lastly, I printed out a nice winter saying onto a tag and added the left over  Glass Bead Glitter Gel + Elderberry mixture around the edges.  After everything was dry I assembled it all together, adding some stitching on the bottom of the tag.

Wishing you many creative days this New Year!
