Hello crafty friends...Penny here today. When I was first approached about Bible journaling, I didn't think I could do it. I mean really...drawing, doodling, marking up a Bible was kind of like burning a flag...legal, but just not something I would do. And besides, what if I messed it up. Then I decided that everyone makes mistakes, but a true artist can figure out how to cover it up and make it look great! So....... you jump into the good book with your first stamp and you are hooked.
Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils
Aloha Guys! This is Joyce from http://enjoyscrappin2.com and today I have a No-line watercolored card using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. I personally love to watercolor and these watercolor pencils are by far my favorite. The colors are very vivid, intense and they blend out completely. These pencils are Waterproof, Permanent and Archival, once it's dried. Which makes layering very easy, without having the color underneath get effected. I love them, they are very easy to work with. I hope you enjoy this card and I'll see you next time. Thanks again :)
Hello Giovanna here, this time with a super glamorous set to wear! I am an avid collector of thrifted stuff, like old doilies, so from one of these I made a couple of earrings, and a lovely pendant...and, ok also a matching keyring, I couldn't stop myself! :-)
Hi everyone! It's Lisa back on the blog to share a cool card to bring the New Year in style using all kinds of the Textural Accents in fun ways that you may not have thought of before. Let me show you the card and then we'll get started!
Fun, isn't it? I think it is and I RARELY compliment my own work. ;)
Here is how this card was made:
Aloha Guys! This is Joyce from enjoyscrappin2.com. Today I'm here with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® and I'll be sharing Iron off emboss resist technique using, various products from Faber Castell Design Memory Craft® This is a super cool technique and it's very easy to do, so come and join me :) Thank you so much!
There are a myriad of options in the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® line, today I will cover two - Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils & Gelatos® Colors. Here I started with light colors 111 for the skin and 123 for blush and lips. Lightly coloring in the face. Building layers of color is always a good technique.
I am using a water filled pen to blend the colors. Of course the more water you use the lighter the color. You can go back and add more color to shade and add depth. But for a very fair complexion these colors work well together.
Making darker shades is easy by adding layers of color. Here I am adding Gelatos® Colors on top, just a few areas with a Chocolate Gelatos® Colors. ( I am cracking up because it almost looks as though I was going to give her a goatee! But I digress...)
It is much easier to add color than take away, the chocolate color is very dark and needed some warmth so I added a little Cinnamon and Peach. I add a little at a time, blended, then add ed more color if I need it.

Hey everyone it's Lisa with you today this first day of October. (Can you believe it?!!) Now I must admit, I'm really not a fan of Halloween, but I love the colors of Autumn AND Halloween and I thought that breaking out my Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils for a sweet card would be just the thing.
Here are the steps to make this cute Halloween card:
1. Stamp images using Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black onto watercolor paper.
2. Using select colors from Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils carefully color in images. *Tip - When coloring in images, be "loose" with color placement. Start with darker colors at bottom and top, then work lighter colors towards the center. This works best for round images.
3. With Deluxe Water Brush go over the penciled in areas to create a blended, watercolored look. Work from bottom to center and from top to center. Dab off excess water with paper towel, if necessary. Add additional color if desired, and re-wet/blend. Be careful not to over-saturate the paper.
4. Stamp small spider with black pigment ink, heat set with clear embossing powder.
5. Die-cut all images with matching dies.
6. Stamp sentiment on to white paper with black pigment ink, heat set with clear embossing powder.
7. Attach foam squares to the backs of pumpkins and spider. Arrange and attach all pieces to pre-cut piece of 4" x 4" patterned paper.
8. Draw curly web for spider using Essential PITT Artist Pen.
9. Adhere Sentiment.
10. Card base is standard A2 sized black card stock folded on the horizontal edge. White card stock trimmed ⅛" smaller is adhered to the black card base. A piece of purple glitter cardstock is trimmed to 2" wide and 5⅜". This piece is adhered to the lower portion of the white cardstock. The patterned paper square (with the pumpkins, ghost, and spider) is adhered on top of that.
This is a super simple, super sweet card that really packs a punch to show off those Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.
Thanks so much for joining me today on this spook-tacular October 1st. ;)
