Wearable Crafts Week with Lisa


Hi everyone! It's Lisa with you and it's my turn on the blog to share my craft for our Wearable Crafts Week. Have you been enjoying the projects so far? So fun, right?

I have a super awesome tote bag to share with you today. I currently live in California and bags like these are an absolute necessity! We have a plastic bag ban, so you NEED a nice roomy bag like this to take shopping with you. And customizing it just makes it so much more personal. Who wants a bag that looks like everyone else's? Not this gal!!


I love that this bag already had the gold accents on it. It made it so fun to run with that idea.

Wearable crafts week


Hey there Crafty Peeps Rita Barakat here today. In my travels I have met a lot of ladies that have  interesting jewelry. I especially love the ones that people make themselves. I thought it would be fun to make a little bracelet and right now natural accents are still very popular.So I thought I would take a stab at it and make my own! This is how it turned out!

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!

A Gel Printing Experiment with Marjolaine Walker



Hello creative friends, it's Marjolaine Walker here and I'm back with the second part of my mini mixed media art journal. Since I'm inspired by people who are true to themselves, I decided to expand on the words that I had on the other six pages of my journal. Be brave, kind, honest, bold, amazing and REAL! This time I experimented with something new, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products with a gel printing plate. It was a lot of fun seeing what worked and what didn't and I hope you will try it for yourself. I mixed and matched some Gelatos®,  Texture Luxe™ and  Chalk Board Paint and finished it off with Pitt Artist Big Brush Pens which are permanent, light fast, acid free and archival. I recorded the process so you could see, I hope you enjoy the video!

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!

Magic - Alphabet background with Gelatos® Brights kit by Valerie Ouellet


For my second project, I used Gelatos® 15 colors Brights kit. I particularly like those kit because I love neon color. You get some incredible effects when you mix neon with sepia or black and white photos.

First, I used my left over alphabet chipboards to build a background. I began by glueing my chipboards randomly. Then I applied Gesso. With a bit more heat, I made some texture while the gesso expanded.

Then, I coloured my alphabets with my Gelatos® (Passion Fruit, Red Cherry, Bubblegum) while playing with different colours to create a shading. To finish, I added water to complete my background.
