An ocean tag with Mou

Hi everyone, Mou here with today's pictorial of an ocean tag!


To make this tag, I used:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Whipped Spackle

Others: tag, paint brush, stamps, acrylic block, twine
Now, let me walk you through the steps


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.

ATC's 1 drawing, three ways!

RitaBarakatATCdrawings6100     Hey there Rita Barakat here! Today I am sharing some ATC's  I have been working on! RitaBarakatATC100 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. RitaBarakatATCdrawings100 With the basics in time to place, it's time to make adjustments- different hair,lips, eyes... RitaBarakatATCdrawings2100 Time for color! This time I grabbed my Art GRIP® Aquarelles. RitaBarakatATCdrawings3100 Spread the color with a wet paint brush. RitaBarakatATCdrawings4100 Hair color is so fun!!! RitaBarakatATCdrawings5100 Gold Gelatos®Colors for the background! RitaBarakatATCdrawings6100 A black PITT® Artist Pen for details and there you have it! 1 drawing, 3 ways!

Be yourself in journaling

Be yourself

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!
