Hi crafty friends! It's Lisa with you today and I'm super excited to kick this week off with your first project here at the Design Memory Craft Blog. We've got a really awesome week planned for you, so I hope you'll be checking to see all of the DT's amazing work this week. :)
As you can see above I created something kind of interesting. It's a mixed media collage piece on a piece of wood using TONS of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products and the gorgeous Unity Stamp called Harmony Girl. She's stunning.
Here are a few of my steps to creating this piece:
1: Cover the wood piece with selected pieces of paper, creating your layout. Then cover the wood with Gel Medium and the paper with Gel Medium. Allow to dry.
2: Create a mixture of Gesso and Chalkboard Paint and apply to surface of panel in random areas creating a look that is appealing and less "white".
3: Apply Chalkboard Paint to edges of wood panel and also allow paint to drip on random areas of surface.
4: Stamp image onto tissue paper using Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black #199, cut out and apply to panel with Gel Medium.
5: Using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, Stamper's Big Brush Pens, and the Deluxe Waterbrush color in the image.
6: Shaving bits of the Paper Crafter Crayons™ off using a craft knife place around image and melt to panel front using a craft iron.
7: Stamp the sentiment using Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black #199. Embellish with Washi Tape, sequins, and rub-ons. Use Glass Bead Glitter Gel on umbrella for added interest and texture. See close up below:
I love how easily this came together. (Don't let all the steps fool ya!) :)
Don’t forget to stop by the Unity Stamps blog for their post! The blog hop will be open until Sunday, September 21st (11PM EST). Happy hopping! :)

Hey everyone, Mou here with the winners of September 2014 Take the Challenge with Mou:
1. Chark said... (posted on my blog due to typepad issues)
Hi, Mou, fun challenge! I hope you don't mind, but it won't take my link over at the Design Memory Craft blog either. I submitted it twice on different days...hmmm...here's hoping! http://glitterinmykitchen.blogspot.com/2014/09/were-off-to-see-wizard.html#comment-form
2. This was wonderful challenge, Mou. Usually I don't keep time limit for my creativity, sometimes I finish in an hour or sometimes half done project laying on my table for a week. Yes, but I do like to stick to my commitment for DT projects. :) I finished my project for this challenge in 25 mins. Kept it simple, even though I tempted to add 'some more'. It was inspiration from your video here. Link to my project:http://nagaonkarshilpa.blogspot.in/2014/09/30-minutes-project.html
