No Line Watercoloring Technique

Nolinevideo1

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany with another Video Tutorial for you! Today, I'll be sharing a way to recreate the No Line Coloring method with Watercoloring! For this technique, we'll be stamping our images with the Stamper's Big Brush Pens in Subtle Colors & then coloring with Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and Gelatos®.

There are so many benefits to using the Stamper's Big Brush Pens:

  • Lightfast, so they don't fade in the sun or over time
  • Odorless, no nasty migraines from fumes
  • Permanent, perfect to Mix & Match with the watercoloring mediums
  • No Bleed-through, so you can stamp or color with these without worrying about the ink bleeding through your cardstock!
  • India Ink

I hope you're inspired to try this technique at home! I just love the soft artsy results :)

Gold is everywhere!

Hey there artsy peeps Rita Barakat here. Have you noticed that ever where you look - fashion, gone decor, scrap booking, gold is everywhere! So I really has fun creating this project in blues - with gold hair!

 

RitabarakatMixedMedia2
For this project I used the brand new Texture Gems for the gold! I used a mini spatula to spread the gold color - it lookd amazing in person! For the blues I used a blueberry Gelatos®Colors and a #144  Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. Using more or less color and water you can get more shades out of one or two colors! So have you been using gold on your projects? You should! Gold is awesome!

Blessings!

Blessing,
Rita

Smile Card by Lisa

LisaAdametz-Smile-1

Hi there crafty friends! It's Lisa back with another project for ya and, like my DT teamies Tiffany and Rita, I have a project featuring the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. Talk about ESP, huh?

These pencils are by far the best watercolor pencils I have ever owned in their category. The color is richly pigmented and lightfast and turns into a waterproof color once dry. The leads are glued through the bore of the pencil so that they never break. The triangular shape is ergonomic = so comfortable to work with.  But let me show you a quick card I made with them so you can see for yourself what a dream they are...

Watercolored Animal Stack!

Hello Blogosphere!

It's Tiffany here today and I have a video tutorial showing you how I used my most favorite coloring medium, the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, to create this cute birthday card for Lawn Fawn's 5th Birthday!

What's not to love about these awesome pencils? Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils are so many things.

  1. Water Soluble, so they glide onto wet surfaces!
  2. Waterproof once dry, which is great for adding layers and depth!
  3. Lightfast, so they never fade!
  4. They're as precise or blended as you want them to be!
  5. The leads never break when sharpened.
  6. Their triangular grips ensure they don't roll around on your desk!
  7. You can use them with all of the other mediums in the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Mix & Match product line!

I could go on & on, but really just watch the video and you'll see just how easy it is to color with these!

Be Happy | A Scrapbooking Tutorial by Irit Landgraf

2015-02-1o2 12

Hi! I am beyond excited to share with you my first project as a guest designer on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog.

I am a 12*12 scrapbooker at heart, so today I'll show some of my favorite ways to use Gelatos®, Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and Stamper’s Big Brush Pens. Let's get started!

I prepped my paper with a thin layer of gesso because I knew I wanted to use Gelatos® and lots of water, and I find the color flows better when my surface is primed. I had to go with one of my favorite color schemes lately, purples and aquas. You can find a list of all the products I used at the end of this post.

For Day 1, I have an ir-RISIST-ible trim for ya featuring May Arts 1" Solid Wrinkled Ribbon in White with a Texture Gems Ice Liner watercolor resist technique! Before I dive into my project, I wanted to share with you, my most meaningful Valentine EVER...

"Once upon a time in 6th grade, my first boyfriend (more like dude I waved to across the classroom and occasionally sat next to at lunch) gave me a cheesy Tasmanian Devil card with a box of chocolates. I wasn't a huge Tasmanian Devil fan, but soon after I started watching the cartoons with lovey dovey moon eyes and the Whitman chocolates were pretty special at the time, considering my 11-year-old palette ;) I look back on it now and it was one of those lame first Valentine's Day moments I'm certain we all get hazed into- teddy bears, chocolates, roses, balloons, tasmanian devil cards...right?! But, it still holds a special place in my heart."

Okay onto the quick technique video tutorial:
