For this project, I used Graphic 45's ATC Box in Kraft and created a little steampunk art box.

The lid is covered with paper from the Topography line in Journey.   I loved the dictionary text on this paper with the slightly aged appearance!  Right up my alley!

JenMatottGraphic45 - 23The butterfly was layered on the lid but it's actually a Gel Medium skin transfer!  Here's how you do it:

1. Coat your toner-based image (photocopy, laser print or magazine image) with a generous even layer of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gel Medium.  Brush in one direction.  Allow to dry completely. Then, layer on another generous layer going the opposite direction.  Repeat for the 3rd layer and allow to dry completely. 

JenMatottGraphic45 - 1
Once completely dry, you are going to spray water onto the back of the paper.  Allow to saturate and then slowly use your finger to rub the pulp off.

I tried to get as much pulp off as a could but it does leave a dull haze when dry so I added a layer of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Glaze to the image side.  Once dry, it gives it a nice soft sheen and hides the pulp fibers!

Using the Steampunk Gelatos colors, I colored on of the tags that comes in the box.  I used it as a layering piece.

JenMatottGraphic45 - 8

I layered the tag, over one end of the ribbon on the lid, then the cut out frame from the Gilded Lily Ephemera card pack and then the butterfly.  I cut a question mark from the Journey paper and layered the metal keyhole on top.  The keyhole was colored with Iced Coffee to match the Claw Feet.

I used a Mixed Media Stencil in brick from the 10 ct. 101 Mixed Media Stencil pack 
and some Whipped Spackle through the brick stencil.  I did this to all 3 sides.

JenMatottGraphic45 - 9

Adding Steampunk Gelatos® Colors with lots of water created this drip effect.

JenMatottGraphic45 - 15

Finally, I colored the inside of the lid with the same Steampunk set and stamped using a Stamper's Big Brush Pen in black and the Topography 1 stamp set.

Inside the box is a pillow of velvet fabric and a nest with metal wings to complete the Steampunk feel.

FCJuly2015_BlogHop_Detail2_MouS

For today's hop project, I decorated an ATC Book Box with various Design Memory Craft products and Graphic 45 embellishments. I have to say the two sets of products work together like peanut butter and jelly! I had SO MUCH FUN. Let me walk you through the steps.

Start by painting the ATC Book Box and the tags with Chalkboard Paint.

Once dry, color the surfaces with Gelatos® colors from the Metallic and Steampunk set. Blend the colors dry with the blending tools from Gelatos Tool set. To add some extra shin, apply a coat of Glaze. Let dry.

Apply Whipped Spackle through stencil on the tags as shown.

When dry, add some more colors with Gelatos® colors and Stamper's Big Brush pen, blending with a wet brush.

Ink up the selected stamps with Stamper's Big Brush pens and stamp randomly around the box and tags.

Next, cut out images from the Inscribe patterned paper and attach to the box and tags with Gel Medium. Also add selected words cut out of old book paper.

Punch a hole on the top of the ATC Book Box and insert the Lion Head Door Knocker. Screw it in place with the provided hardware to create a handle for your box.

Once the tags are thoroughly dry, put them together with the binder ring. Best part is that it can be an ongoing project as you can add more tags as you go!

Hope you enjoyed today's project and be sure to stop by tomorrow for more inspiration.

An art journal page with Mou

Hi everyone, Mou here today with an art journal page.

Summer is a time for going camping or RV-ing for many. My page is inspired by a camping staple: a lantern.

On this project, I used:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents & Tools: Gesso, Gel Medium

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Colors: Buttercream (YELLOW set), Green Tea, Lime (GREEN set), Iced Coffee, Black Cherry (STEAMPUNK set)

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pen: WARM GREY IV (NEUTRAL set), SCARLET RED (RED set)

Others: Sizzix Die Rustic Lantern; die-cutting system; art journal, old book paper, patterned paper 

And here are the steps.

With Gel Medium, attach some old book papers to your journal page. Attach a patterned paper block at the center. Color the page with Gelatos colors. Ink up stamp with Warm Grey Stamper's Big Brush pen and stamp around the page. Add some gesso on parts of the page and blend it in.

FCJuly2015_Tutorial2_Detail1_MouS

Layer the diecut lantern on the page with Gel Medium. Color the lantern with Scarlet Red Stamper's Big Brush pen and add shadowing with Black Cherry Gelatos color and highlights with Gesso. Add shadowing around the lantern using Warm Grey Stamper's Big Brush pen.
