Hello, crafty folks. It´s Denisa here. My first project for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® is an art journal spread in a bit of vintage mood and a great deal of mixed media featuring the awesome Stamper´s Big Brush Pens.
I love art journaling since there are no rules and limits. Whatever you do is totally up to your choice and the result is pretty unpredictable. One doesn´t have to plan things, they just happen as you go and it´s all about your imagination and freedom.

Hello my blogging friends, Mou here with today's project!
Hi, Artsy Friends! I had to opportunity to go to an all weekend scrapbooking retreat this past weekend and had a blast creating, eating, and laughing! I had the photos from my trip to the Faber-Castell warehouse and had been meaning to scrap it. It was two years ago... see how long it takes me to get photos done? I had so much fun looking around their warehouse and offices.
This is already my last post as a Guest Design Team Member. I am very happy to have been on a such wonderful team. Thanks Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® for the amazing opportunity !
So today, for my last project, I made a layout with the Texture Cards. This tool is great for any type of mixed media project. It allow you to easily create texture in a variety of mediums: Whipped Spackle, Texture Luxe™, Texture Gems ™, Gesso, , Gel Medium... The Texture Cards are easy to clean and comes with a metal ring for easy storage. You have 8 differents patterns.
On my project, I put the Whipped Spackle through a stencil and I add texture by rubbing the Texture Card on the medium (my stencil was still in place).
Hi Artsy friends! During my travels to demo for Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft with amazing store owners, I have saves some of my demo pieces. Even though they do not start with an idea to complete them, I find I'm inspired by some of the color combos and playful use of Gelatos® and mediums. This page grew from one such demo paper.
I'm back with a sweet steampunk layout. I used the new Gelatos® Steampunk kit. I love the mix of colors of this kit.
First, I made a watercolor background with Gelatos® Snowcone, Cotton Candy, Aqua Dolce. After, I sticked some pieces of paper to create dimensions behind the photo. I added a little bit of gesso white with spatula.
Want a gorgeous metallic surface to cut into shapes and add as embellishments? Well, I have a technique for you! This was so fun (if you have a little patience and room to leave it to dry!)... Those pie wedges on the page are Texture Luxe skins! What is a skin? Well, acrylic mediums are plastic-based and when they dry on a non-stick surface, they can be peeled off and create a "skin" of medium to cut shapes from!
Great canvas - love how you created your background! Wonderful idea to use the Texture Gem in your chipboard coloring and as an embellishment on the canvas edges :)
I love this tutorial! Thank you for sharing. Onr question, what is the brand of book binding glue you used?
Looking forward to your next project.
Hi Helen, good to see your project. Fun as usual. thanks as always for sharing.
I absolutely adore this. I think I want to these techniques to make a canvas panel for an embroidery hoop wall hanging. Thank you so much for the fantastic inspiration and tutorials.
That is one beauty of an album...
