Hi everyone, Mou here today with an art journaling tutorial for you using the Gelatos® color Fig!
Fig is this beautiful mix of purple and grey and works really well with both warm and cool colors. Without further ado, let me show you how I used Fig in my art journaling page.
Let's start with the supplies I used:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® colors: Fig, Banana, Blood Orange, Blueberry, Peach
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents: Chalkboard Paint, Gel Medium, Gesso
Faber-Castell Design Memory CraftStamper's Big Brush Pen: Black
Others: Mixed media paper, found papers, thread, sewing machine, chipboard letters, paint brush, stamps, pencil
Now, let me walk you through the steps.
Start by tearing found papers and attaching them to a mixed media paper base using Gel Medium. Once you have covered the whole surface, seal the papers with a top coat of gel medium. Let dry.
Rub Fig Gelatos on the surface.
Add more Gelatos colors and blend with Gesso.
Attach chipboard letters to spell out your word of choice. I used 'Yes' based on a hashtag I saw on Instagram. Machine stitch all over the page and stamp around randomly for some added visual texture.
Ink up alphabet stamps with Black Stamper's Big Brush pen to finish the message on your page.
With Chalkboard Paint, brush on a focal point. I chose florals. Feel free to draw your own favorite.
Make simple marks all around the focal point with pencil, Gesso, and Gelatos to finish.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and be sure to share links to your takes with Fig Gelatos in the comments below.
