Hello my blogging friends, Mou here with today's project!
Hi everyone! Carisa here with you today and I'm thrilled to be joining Faber Castell Design Memory Craft as part of their Fall/Winter Guest Designers. This is a big dream of mine and I'm still kinda pinching myself. I love using these products in my art journals and mixed media projects and it is my desire to inspire all of you over the next few months using some of my favorite products.
Today, it is all about the Mixed Media Set - Tropical available now at your Barnes and Noble stores! I think this would make the perfect gift for any of your crafty friends who may have mentioned wanting to try out mixed media or maybe YOU want to try mixed media but you just don't know how to get started. This kit is it! You get everything you need to truly get started on your own journey. I want to show you how I used all the products available in the kit in my art journal once I got it.

I knew right away when I saw the stencils included in this kit that I wanted to use the stencil with the keys. I've been reading a lot of quotes lately about happiness and I made up my own based on this stencil (at least I think I did...:D )
What are you going to make with the Mixed Media Set - 50's Diner that's now available at Barnes & Noble? How about a home decor piece for Thanksgiving? The colors are just perfect for Fall, there's plenty of fun tools in the kit and the fabulous Texture Luxe Silver to add texture with a great collection of stencils! Here's the project I made. .

Want to know what's in the kit?
FIVE Gelatos® Colors in 50’s Diner hues, namely, Aqua Dolce, Banana, Blood Orange (this one's my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE... yay! Okay, I'm back.), Metallic Melon and Squid Ink
Texture Luxe® Silver
SIX fun tools: 2 Misting Bottles, Palette Knife, Stipple Brush, Dot Dabber, Drip Dropper
ONE Technique Guide
Imagine all the things you can create with this kit!
I created the above project using the Mixed Media 50's Diner Kit.
Other supplies I used were:
Cardstock, paint brush
Let me walk you through the steps of creating this project.
1. Rub a little of each of the Gelatos® Colors from the kit on a palette. Add water and brush on cardstock to create the background.
2. Lay down the banners stencil and tape it in place. With palette knife, apply Texture Luxe® Silver to create the banners. Let dry.
3. Cut off a little bit of Gelatos® Colors Blood Orange and dilute it with water in the palette. Use the Drip Dropper to transfer the liquid color to a misting bottle.
4. Spray the color on the surface. Let dry.
5. Repeat this with Gelatos® Colors Squid Ink.
6. Use the Dot Dabber as a stamp to create a dot design using Gelatos® Colors Blood Orange.
7. Use the dry stipple brush to lift a little bit of the Gelatos® Colors Aqua Dolce and press it down on the paper.
8. When all the mediums are dry, draw strings with Essential PITT Artist pens in BLACK.
9. Finally, with Stamper's Big Brush pen BLACK, write your message.
