Canvas Corp Blog Hop Day 5- Jen

Hi everyone and welcome to day five of the blog hop with Canvas Corp! To win Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®'s $50 prize, comment below each day this week.  One random winner will be selected on April 20th. 

Hi everyone!  Jen here to share with you a project that creates with Canvas Corp bag and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products.   FrontofbagI started with a hexagon stencil from the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mixed Media Stencil 101 Collection and used Gelatos® Colors Brights set to create areas of shape and color.

GelatosonbagColor inside the stencil and then blend with finger.  I rub in a circlular direction to create a mixed effect.

Gelatos2
I used the same stencil to dab Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard Paint over to create some black areas.  Once dry, I added Art GRIP® Color Pencil in white over the chalkboard painted shapes as well as PITT® Artist Pen in Black around some of the Gelatos® shapes.

Bagdetail8

Here's a view of the back of the bag... I just added some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Chalkboard Paint through the hexagon stencil and drew with the ArtGrip colored pencil in white.

Backviewofbag

On the front of the bag, I colored with the Gelatos® Colors in Snow Cone from the Brights set.  I tipped the bag up ( I suggest putting a piece of cardboard inside the bag to create a flat, solid surface to paint on) and sprayed water to create drips down the surface.  Some text was stamped using a Stamper’s Big Brush Pen in black over some areas.

  Bagdetails3

Next, I added Texture Luxe™ in Gold to some chipboard shapes from UmWowStudio using a foam dabber in the Gelatos Tool Set.

Using that same hexagon stencil, I added some of the Texture Luxe™ in Gold through using a palette knife.  Allow to dry completely.

Draw a shape (I created a bee shape) with a PITT® Artist Pen and use as a guide to backstitch using colored floss.

No Line Watercoloring Technique

Nolinevideo1

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany with another Video Tutorial for you! Today, I'll be sharing a way to recreate the No Line Coloring method with Watercoloring! For this technique, we'll be stamping our images with the Stamper's Big Brush Pens in Subtle Colors & then coloring with Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and Gelatos®.

There are so many benefits to using the Stamper's Big Brush Pens:

  • Lightfast, so they don't fade in the sun or over time
  • Odorless, no nasty migraines from fumes
  • Permanent, perfect to Mix & Match with the watercoloring mediums
  • No Bleed-through, so you can stamp or color with these without worrying about the ink bleeding through your cardstock!
  • India Ink

Video Tutorial:

I hope you're inspired to try this technique at home! I just love the soft artsy results :)
