Halloween Mixed Media Card


Hi Creatives! 

Happy Autumn! Best time of year in my neck of the woods where the weather turns crisp, the trees change to beautiful colors and we can break out the warm sweaters and hot cocoa! It's the shortest season yet the one I wish would last longer!

The project that I'll be showing you this week is for a Halloween mixed media card. As a kid, my mother always instilled in us to send mail. Thank You notes, Birthday cards, Sympathy cards, Thinking of You cards. Whatever the occasion was, she would always send a card in the mail. And I think that form of communication is really starting to fade away, which totally bums me out. I love getting mail (other than bills, of course!) Who doesn't like to go to their mailbox and open it to see a nice card from somebody special?

Watercolor Layout with Gelatos Double Scoop


Hello Crafters!

Zoey here, and I want to show you an easy layout I made using Gelatos® Double Scoop® !
The reason why I am obsessed with Gelatos® Double Scoop® is the fact that they are bigger than normal Gelatos®, this not only mean that they will last longer, but they also have a bigger surface that I can use as color palette..and it is perfect for me as I love to use the brush straight on the top of the Gelatos®

I started by adding Whipped Spackle through one of the new Stencils 10ct 201 Collection. I didn't want a bulk effect, so I carefully removed the excess of Whipped Spackle.
Whipped Spackle is so soft that it will be so easy to add it to your project!

Take the Challenge with Mou, September 2015 Edition

Hi everyone, Mou here! I'm back with Take the Challenge with Mou with the September 2015 edition.

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.  

For September, my challenge for you is to alter something, anything you already have.

During our move, a lot of forgotten items were rediscovered. One was this wooden letter "M". I had some paper stuck on it but nothing special. With my stash of mixed media supplies, I decided to alter that letter to suit my current aesthetics. Here's the final result.


Here are the supplies I used to alter my wooden monogram.

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents & Tools: Gesso, Gel Medium, Whipped Spackle, Texture Luxe™ Gold, Texture Gems™ 3ct Metallics, Stencils 10 ct. 101  and 10 ct. 201 collections,  Gelatos Tool set

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®: RED set, BLUE set

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

Others: wooden letter, patterned paper, tissue, string, stamps.


Here's how you can go about altering your letter.

Cover the letter with a layer of patterned papers and seal it off with Gel Medium.

Whitewash with Gesso.

Add texture with circles stencil from Stencils 10 ct. 101 set using Whipped Spackle.

When dry, color with Gelatos®. Blend colors with water. Let some colors drip down.

When dry, rub some Texture Luxe™ Gold to accentuate the texture.


Ink up stamps with BLACK Stamper's Big Brush pen. Stamp all around.

Tie some string to the letter.

Attach some tissue paper here and there to add interest to the wooden letter with Gel Medium. Also attach some patterned paper cutouts.


Choose a bird from the birds stencil from 10 ct. 201 set and apply Whipped Spackle through it. You can choose your favorite stencil that fits the look you are going for.

Using Texture Gems™ 3ct Metallics GOLD, create small dots to embellish the bird. Let dry thoroughly.


Attach a favorite saying to the letter to finish.

Don't forget to share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to this challenge post with link to your project image(s) by Sunday, 9/20 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.

The prize for this challenge is: One pack of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stencils 201 Collection.

Don't forget to check back on Monday, 9/21 to see if YOU won! Good luck to all!

Art Journal page with Zoey

Art journal2

Hello everyone!

Zoey's here today with a quick and easy art journal page. The inspiration for this art journal page I had it from the quote "home is where your heart is"...quickly changed in "Home is forever".

I love using Mini Journal Boards as the base of my art journal pages, they are ready to work on, but I like to add a really thin layer of Gesso before starting to add any other mediums.

I grabbed few colors from the brand new Gelatos® Colors BRIGHTS , I scribbled the Gelatos® and then I blended everything with a baby wipe. I love how smooth are the Gelatos® on Gesso!

Right Where You Should Be Tag - with Lisa


Hi everyone it's Lisa here with a new tag that I made using a BUNCH of stuff in a few new ways! Let me show you what I did to create this:

1. Start with a manila tag that is  4⅛“ x 8 ½ “. Tear a few pieces of patterned tissue paper and adhere to tag using Gel Medium on both sides of tissue paper.

2. Coat tag with Gelatos® from the Pastels collection: Peach, Earl Grey, Watermelon, Fig, Elderberry, and Buttercream.

Not pictured: Spritz tag with mixture made from water and Texture Luxe™ Pearl and combined/mixed in mister from Gelatos® Mist Maker Set.

3. Place hexagon stencil from (Stencil 101 pack) on top of tag while still damp and rub open area with paper towel or rag to reveal open area. Using pastel pencil #226 from the PITT Pastel Pencil Set in Red/Yellow shade the outer areas of the hexagons.

4. Using the same stencil, but the smallest hexagons, place the stencil back on the tag and smooth some Whipped Spackle over the upper right hand corner of the tag using a palette knife.


5. Using another pastel pencil in black #199 from the PITT Pastel Pencils in Neutral add shading around various images on tissue paper.

6.  Create a loose circular "nest" from vintage gold string and use dots/dabs of Texture Gems™ Ice to hold in place.

7. Smear with finger the same Texture Gems™ Ice and embed flecks of Gold Glass glitter. Tap off excess. Allow to dry thoroughly.

8. Stamp sentiment and bird (lifting off some ink off bird, if possible to create more of a ghost-type image). 

9. Distress edges of tag and go around edge with Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black #199.

Here is a close-up for you!


Wouldn't this be a great tag to give to someone to lift their spirits? Or as a just because on a bag of cookies or something sweet for a friend? Tags are a great way to try techniques and so fun to give instead of a card! And there's tons of room to write a personal message on the back. :) Do you like to create tags, too?

Enjoy your weekend everyone and thanks so much for joining me today!

Mini Mixed Media Journal with Marjolaine Walker


Hi creative friends, Marjolaine Walker here with my first post as a guess designer. I am so thrilled to be here! This project is part one of a two part project.  The Mini Mixed Media Journal has twelve pages and today I am showing you six. I will be doing something different to finish up the rest of the journal.

For my projects I rely heavily on Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Mix and Match collections. The reason for this is that I am partially color blind and need all the help I can get in putting colors together! Mix and Match takes the guess work out of it for me because the colors are set to look fantastic together. All the Gelatos® I used come from the 15 piece Brights that has quickly become my favorite!

I love to give tags to friends and family and I love having little reminders that inspire me in my studio so the paper from Graphic 45 was perfect! Check out the process.


Cut white cardstock in 3 different sizes to fit on top of each other.


using the G45 Stamp Set I used the Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pen to stamp all over the larger piece of white cardstock.


Cut a mat for the middle white cardstock from the typography paper line.


Repeat step using Stamper's Big Brush pen and stamp set for the middle piece and top piece, choose your favorite stamps from the set.


place all cards on top of each other using 3D foam and with a stencil and whipped spackle apply some texture in random spots on top of the tag as shown.


Fussy cut your favorite image/saying


Apply some gelatos on the top of the tag using the Steam Punk Collection and spray with water as shown below to allow them to run and become a watercolor effect.



Last but not least, use a Pitt Artist pen to create faux stitch lines around the tag for some interest.



Last step is to assemble card including some metal findings from Graphic 45.


Materials Used:

G45 - Cling Stamps, Ornate Metal Label Holder, Typography Collection Journey #4500772, Old Curiosity Collection Parlour Wall 4500429

Faber Castell Design Memory Craft - Whipped Spackle, Stencils 101 Collection , Steampunk Gelatos, Stamper's Big Brush Pen, Essential Pitt Artist Pens
