Hi everyone, Mou here with today's pictorial of an ocean tag!
To make this tag, I used:
Brush on gesso to the tag.
Ink up shell stamps with Stamper's Big Brush pen to cover only the areas you want to stamp.
Color the stamped shells with Aquarelle watercolor pencils. Blend colors with wet brush.
Color the background with Gelatos colors and blend with wet brush.
Apply Whipped Spackle through stencil on the tag with palette knife. Add a 3D sticker to embellish the tag.
Tie twine to the tag to finish.
Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and would make your own ocean tag.
Hey there Rita Barakat here! Today I am sharing some ATC's I have been working on! So I had this idea - 1 drawing three ways. I thought what if I drew one girl and traced her two more times - could I make three totally different ATC's? Of course the answer is YES! First step, trace on each ATC.( I am just drawing on tracing paper so all of the details don't necessarily transfer but that's OK. With the basics in time to place, it's time to make adjustments- different hair,lips, eyes... Time for color! This time I grabbed my Art GRIP® Aquarelles. Spread the color with a wet paint brush. Hair color is so fun!!! Gold Gelatos®Colors for the background! A black PITT® Artist Pen for details and there you have it! 1 drawing, 3 ways!

Hi everyone, Mou here with my project for the hop:
To make this card, you'll need:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso
Others: Cardstock, book page, tissue, pencil, paint brush, adhesive, scissors
And now let me walk you through the steps:
Ink up a sunflower stamp with Black Stamper's Big Brush pen and stamp on cardstock. Cut the flower out. Also stamp the sentiment and cut it out with scissors.
Fold cardstock to make 5.5" x 4.25" card. On the card front, collage various pieces of scrap papers and tissue with Gel Medium. Let dry.
Apply a moderate coat of Gesso to tone down the different papers.
Rub Gelatos and blend them with very little water.
Color the cut out sunflower with watercolor pencils and Stamper's Big Brush pens.
Blend the colors with Glaze.
Add some circles with the Gold Metallic pen. Attach flower and sentiment to finish the card.
Here's a close-up of details

Hello, Olga Siedlecka here. In my last post as a guest designer I would like to present you my another entry based on a mixed media journal and versatile products by Faber-Castell, which you can mix and match with flying colours.
1. I started with covering the surface with a light coat of Gesso and watered Gelotos. Then I put a thick coat of Whippled Spackle using both a stencil and a spatula and let it dry.
2. I glued some collage scraps with Gel Medium and colored them with Art Grip Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and bit of water. I also traced the dimentional elements. I think that a little color goes a long way.
3. I placed another stencil and covered the surface beneath with Gelotos in blue palette. Then I started stamping using PITT® Artist Pens with big brushes which are waterproof and perfectly matched to color sets.
4. Finally, I doodled some patterns on the whole using black PITT® Artist Pens and glued some embellisments with Gel Medium. And voila! The dimensional journal entry was ready.
I hope you feel a bit inspired. Have a nice day!

Hi everyone, Mou here today!
Magnolias are in full bloom all around here... the big white flowers and their intoxicating fragrance fill the nights when we sometimes hang out by the pool in the back porch. They inspired me to create a little collage.
To create this collage, I used:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush pens: Light Cobalt Turquoise 154, Skyblue 146, Cobalt Turquoise 153, Manganese Violet 160, Magenta 133, May Green 170, Permanent Green Olive 167
Let me walk you through the steps.
Prep your page with Gesso.
Sketch your inspiration with pencil.
Color around the sketch with watercolor pencils.
Blend the colors with waterbrush.
Add colors and details to the sketch with Stamper's Big Brush pens.
Attach bits and pieces of tissues and book paper with Gel Medium around the flower.
Tone down the prints and areas of intense colors with a bit of Gesso to finish.
Here's a close up
What would you create with inspiration that's around you?

HOw fun and cute and artsy--just like the sweet gal who made em!!! I LOVE this idea Tiffany! I'm just now starting to expand with my Gelatos and I'm finding that they are work SO well with, well...like everything!!! Still, I hadn't thought of this creative way to use them yet! I can't think of a store bought embellishment that could beat a homemade one and I can't wait to pull out my very neglected sticker frames and such and start making some of my very own! Thanks for your always amazing inspiration!!! :D
Wow, LOVE this..
This is just so cool. The blue makes the whole thing seem so alive! Love the colors, very nice!
That is such a gorgeous layout!! I just got my Glass Bead Glitter Gel prize from you wonderful people and I'm already head-over-heels in love with it!!! This fabulous inspiration today is just what the doc ordered to spark my creativity!! Thank you Jen!! :)
Awesome! Now I don't have to buy those kits (those cards) for my albums! Thanks for sharing!
