Deck your home for the holidays with Mou

Hello bloggers, Mou here today with a fun and simple fall décor idea for your home!


Of all the seasons, Fall is my absolute favorite! I am inspired by the beautiful vibrant colors of fall foliage. The falling leaves swirling in the autumn breeze gave me the idea to create a leafy garland to decorate our dining room windows.

To create this project, you'll need:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Double Scoop® Color: Red Cherry, Mango, Margarita Mix, Green TeaRaspberry

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pens: 3ct RED

Others: Mixed Media paper pad, stamp, thread, sewing machine, die, diecutter, paint brush


Color mixed media paper with various Gelatos colors. Blend the colors with wet brush.

Ink up a script stamp with Stamper's Brush pen and stamp randomly around the colored papers.

Splatter some watered down Gelatos colors on the papers.


Diecut fall leaves out of the papers. You could also cut your own with scissors. 


Machine stitch the leaves together into a garland. Working with the slowest stitching speed is best for this.

Wrap it in loops around a window to bring in some colors on drab rainy days!

Hope you liked my tutorial! Why not give it a try yourself. You'll have fun!

An Art Journal page and winners of September Take the Challenge

Hi blog friends, Mou here with today's post and it's an art journal page!

As my oldest is getting closer to turning into a teenager, I hear about a lot of peer pressure for conformity, generic expectations and stress over acceptance vs. being true to yourself. From her choices of clothing to friends, after-school activities, choice of music and the list goes on while she weighs her options and balances authenticity with social acceptance. We have all been there and we know that at times it's hard to say 'no' to popular choices in favor of what we know to be right for us in the long run. It's the dilemma of fitting in and standing out. As she enters this realm of choices that she has to be responsible for, I try to encourage and remind her that it's important to remain true to herself and that these choices might alienate some people but not those who are truly meant to be her friends, I also try to validate that it is easier said than done and the pressure is real but it get easier as she grows older, wiser and more confident of her choices. From all those conversations with her, sprung this art journal page.

It is somewhat symbolic to me. The little triangles are like little obstacles that surround all of us. But they are not so big that we can't overcome or work around them. To translate that feeling into tangible texture, I applied Whipped Spackle through a triangle stencil. I used a heat tool to dry the texture medium and to introduce a few bubbles into it to create a bumpy texture.

From another perspective, the triangles are arrows pointing a certain way to look forward to. They are also like stepping stones guiding the way once you can rise above the small stuff and take a look at the bigger picture! The colors all around are using Gelatos colors.

Then there's the quote that says it all! I handlettered it with Stamper's Big Brush pen BLACK to make it stand out on a busy background.

Supplies used:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents and Tools:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®: Gelatos Designer Colors - 50's Diner 

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

Others: Art journal, heat tool
