October Leaves - Art Journal Video

2016-10-16 14.24.38

Hello! Rachel here sharing an art journal page that honors the beautiful month of October! The Gelatos® Color of the Week is the gorgeous Cinnamon, such a perfect autumn shade. 

2016-10-16 14.24.49

I combined the Cinnamon Gelatos® with Metallic Blueberry, Boysenberry, and Snow Cone Gelatos, I just love the true blue shades with pretty browns. The art journal includes tracings of oak leaves from my backyard that I painted with Boysenberry Gelatos and traced with the gorgeous Gold Texture Gems™. I also used Gesso through a Mixed Media 101 stencil, then painted highlights on each polka dot with Cinnamon Gelatos.

2016-10-15 15.54.06

I used my Black Stamper's Big Brush Pen to very loosely trace my leaves on parchment paper. Then I painted the 'leaves' with Gesso before adhering to the journal with Gel Medium.

2016-10-15 17.58.18

The quote was added with the alphabet Mixed Media Stencil 301 using Black Licorice Gelatos.

The Not-So-Scary Halloween Owl

FCDMC_October2016_Tutorial1_CinnamonOwl_MouS

Hi everyone, Mou from Color Happy Creations here today with a tutorial to create a not-too-scary Halloween Owl!

Recently, I came across this fun Halloween quote on Pinterest:

"A Great Big Owl in a great big tree, On a night so dark, you could hardly see, Was watching the lights in the deep ravine, Where the witches danced on Halloween."                                                                                                                                                                         

FCDMC_October2016_Tutorial1_CinnamonOwl_Step1_MouS

It inspired me to alter this chipboard owl I found in the children's craft section at Michaels using our Gelatos® color of the week, Cinnamon. Let me show you the steps.

FCDMC_October2016_Tutorial1_CinnamonOwl_Step2_MouS

Use Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Gel Medium to attach the parts to the owl as shown.

Stitched Heart Necklace with Red Cherry Gelatos

Hey friends!  Adrianne Surian here with you today to share another fun-sized mixed media project.  You may have noticed that I have a passion for jewelry and wearable art. It's a great way to bring your pieces with you as a fantastic accessory and express yourself everywhere you go!

Stitched Heart Necklace Red Cherry 1.1

Today I'm using a rustic iron pendant base, and the Gelatos® color of the week, Red Cherry, alongside some of my favorite Design· Memory· Craft® products to create this stitched heart necklace.

Stitched Heart Necklace Red Cherry 5

You all know that mixed media extends beyond the page to a wide variety of materials, and this pendant uses Whipped Spackle to turn a jewelry-quality, lead-free iron pendant into a tiny canvas.  

Stitched Heart Necklace Red Cherry 6

With this vibrant color of the week, a hopeful heart seemed like the perfect mixed media project!  Because the iron is naturally dark, I mixed Red Cherry Gelatos with Whipped Spackle to create an opaque red base. To start, simply cut off some of the Gelatos stick (I used about 1/4") with your palette knife, crush it, and mix it well with an acorn-sized dab of Whipped Spackle.

Use the palette knife to spread a generous layer of the Red Cherry Whipped Spackle over the top of the pendant - I went for a mostly-smooth, semi-even coat of Whipped Spackle (you can see it in the photo below).  I waited about 5 minutes and then used a small rubber stamp to add my initial to the pendant.  You could stamp an entire word into it if you wish (like love, hope, art, heart - whatever inspires you).  Clean any holes in the pendant that may have gotten Whipped Spackle (you can use a toothpick for this step), and then set the pendant aside and allow the Whipped Spackle to dry before continuing.  

Stitched Heart Necklace Red Cherry 8

When the Whipped Spackle is dry, there will be some naturally textured areas around the edges of the pendant, near the holes, and near the stamped area.  I brushed a light coat of Silver Texture Luxe™ over a few areas to add shine and to break up the solid red.  

Stitched Heart Necklace Red Cherry 9

I continued to add complementary colors in very small areas by applying Gelatos directly to the pendant.  I used a hint of Iced Currant and Mango ®®with the Cherry Red.

Stitched Heart Necklace Red Cherry 10

Finally - jewelry and wearable art should be sealed!  Gelatos are water-based and easy to blend, which is a fantastic quality when you're at your art table!  But to be sure your favorite sweater or blouse doesn't end up with a little delicious color where it doesn't belong, add a generous coat of glaze over the whole piece to seal the Gelatos colors.  

Be sure to once again clear any holes of remaining glaze, and set the piece aside to dry fully before continuing.  

Stitched Heart Necklace Red Cherry 11

When your pendant base is dry, add wire "stitching" through the center holes.  Attach a pair of 10mm or larger jump rings to the top of the pendant, and string a necklace chain through the rings.  I prefer a 20" chain to rest at a low neckline, but you can adjust your chain length shorter or even longer to suit your personal style!  

Stitched Heart Necklace Red Cherry 4.2

The final piece is a tiny but bold statement necklace that is sure to be noticed - especially when paired with a solid top.  Your art will get plenty of attention around your neck, which is always a great way to introduce yourself as an artist at events or parties!   Thanks for joining me to check out today's mixed media jewelry and I'll see you all again soon!

Autumn Leaves

This week's Gelatos® color of the week is Red Cherry.  I chose a project with an Autumn theme which works perfectly with this bright, fun color.

Autumn Leaves - by Erin Bassett

I started by decoupaging a canvas panel with a music sheet and Gel Medium. Next, I applied Red Cherry and Blood Orange Gelatos to it and used Gel Medium to move it around my background. I ended up layering up a few layers this way so that the colors would become intense.

Next I added a layer of Glaze. I love how glossy the glaze makes the paper! I used a rubber stamp to make an impression in it while it was still wet.  It's a really neat technique.  I ended up covering it but I at least wanted to show you another fun way to use the Glaze.

For the leaves, I used my die-cut machine to cut a leaf shape out of black cardstock .  You can also draw the leaf and cut it out of cardstock if you don't have a die-cut machine. Next, I  mixed together some Whipped Spackle and Gold Texture Luxe™. Mixing these creates a different color and texture while retaining it's metallic shine.  After they were mixed, I added some Gold Champagne Gelatos to half of it. The gold  really bumped up the metallic look and darkened it as well. I used a pencil to etch some vein lines before the mixture dried.

I did the same technique using Whipped Spackle, Copper Texture Luxe, and Iced Chai Gelatos to it for the other leaf.
Mixing Texture Luxe and Whipped Spackle

 

The bookplate I used was originally silver, and I wanted it to be copper, so I used a dab of the copper Texture Luxe and added a couple of drops of water to it and then applied it.  After it dried, I rubbed ink from the Walnut Brown #177 Stamper's Big Brush Pen into the recessed areas.

Next I used a small piece of black cardstock and covered the front side of it with 3 layers of Chalk Board Paint . Once it was  dry, I wrote the word Autumn on  it with the Stamper's Big Brush pen in white. I applied some Walnut Brown ink around the edge of the canvas as well to create a frame.

After everything was dry,  I wrapped some string and beads around the right edge to finish it off.

Enjoy,

Be Awesome Altered Tin and Album

Welcome back to another colorful Gelatos® post! This is Rachel Kleinman and I'm sharing a new-to-me project with my favorite Gelatos® color: GUAVA! Last post I shared that Snowcone Gelatos® was the first color I ever owned; but Guava Gelatos® was my first favorite! The name definitely had something to do with it, I mean, Guava Juice is delicious :)

 

2016-08-18 16.44.43

 

I started with a plain metal tin that included a little accordion style album inside. You can find these at many arts and crafts stores, or just make your own with an old mint tin. I covered everything with Gesso before adding my Gelatos®, Aquarelle® Pencils, and Whipped Spackle.

 

2016-08-18 16.46.23

 

Since Guava Gelatos® is naturally a light color, I used my Aquarelle® Pencils to highlight and outline. You can see I've added a lot of orange to my album, and that's because I always find myself using Guava alongside the Mango Gelatos®. They just work together! You'll see in a lot of my pieces that where there's pink... there is orange right along side it!

 

2016-08-18 16.46.27

 

There are a lot of new techniques I share in my how-to video for new ways to use your Guava Gelatos®. This includes misting, melting, and stenciling! 

 

 

This little album and tin is also filled to the brim with Mixed Media Stencils! I really love the addition of stencils to the Design Memory Craft line, it just makes designing so easy!

 

2016-08-18 16.46.45

 

So, go! BE AWESOME and play in your craft space, create something new, and try out new ways to use your Gelatos®! Thanks for joining me and happy creating!

Faber Castell and Clear Scraps - Vacation Clipboard

Hello all, this is Rachel Kleinman joining in on some  Clear Scraps fun! I really enjoyed this project, especially because it challenged me to look at my Design Memory Craft™ products in a different way... after all I was creating on CLEAR ACRYLIC, not paper like usual! So here is my mini photo clipboard that is a nod to my recent visit to Myrtle Beach.

 

2016-08-03 17.10.59

 

I started with the Clear Scraps Vintage Mini Clipboard and colored both sides with india ink from the Stamper's Big Brush Pens in May Green and Cobalt Blue. Once the ink from the pens dried, it was on the acrylic board permanently! 

 Next I used the diamond stencil from Design Memory Craft™ Stencil 102 Collection with Silver Texture Luxe™ paste. 

 

2016-08-01 13.56.25

 

Next I decorated the Clear Scraps Vacation Word Title. First I gesso'd the chipboard, then colored it with Gelatos® Passion Fruit, Butter Cream, and Watermelon. To add a huge pop of sparkle, I also coated the chipboard with Glass Bead Glitter Gel, then a very thick layer of Ice Texture™ Gems

 

2016-08-01 15.47.35

 

Next I mixed Lemon Gelatos® with Whipped Spackle and layered a very thick coat of it along the bottom of the clipboard. I used this as a glue to add in the vacation chipboard and several shells we found at Myrtle Beach. Once the Whipped Spackle was dry everything stayed perfectly in place!

Bloom Mini Mixed Media Art Journal with Clear Scraps

Hi everyone, it's Erin Bassett here. This week the Design Team was challenged to use a combination of Design Memory Craft™  and Clear Scraps products.  Clear Scraps manufactures some beautiful artistic pieces for mixed media.  Check out their website for more information. I was really excited to use these products. This is what I came up with...a mini art journal. By allowing myself the creative freedom to combine elements into one project, I bloomed as an artist.

Bloom MiniBook 1

Here's how I created the pages.

For the first page I covered the chipboard piece with Gesso and then layered  Stamper's Big Brush Pens in Dark Chrome Yellow #109 and Cadmium Yellow #107. To create the flower embellishment,  I took the chipboard piece and applied the Silver Texture Luxe over  a stencil from the 101 collection to create a pattern. Once that was dry,  I placed the stencil back on the chipboard and traced the pattern with a PITT® Artist Pen Cobalt Green #156 and then mounted it on top of a foil cupcake liner that I was smashed flat. 

Bloom MiniBook - CloseUp1
Bloom MiniBook 1

The  button on top was colored with the PITT® Artist Pen Cobalt Green #156.

Coloring buttons with PITT Artist Pens 1

For the backside of that page I mounted layered cupcake liners and topped it with a clear button that I colored as well. 
Bloom MiniBook 1

To add texture to this clear acrylic page, I used Silver Texture Luxe and a stencil from the 101 collection . I created the same design on both sides of the page being careful to line up the pattern . Once it was dry,  I marked and smudged the edges of the pattern with a PITT® Artist Pen.
Bloom MiniBook 1

For this chipboard page I used the 3 x 12 Bloom where you are Planted stencil from Clear Scraps and traced over it with the Stamper's Big Brush White Pen and then shadowed it with the PITT® Artist Pen. I also used Copper and Pearl Texture Luxe with the stencil to create the flower. Once everything was dry,  I rubbed a Banana Gelatos® around the background.

Bloom MiniBook - CloseUp4

Bloom MiniBook 1

For the backside of the page, I added Gesso and then used both the small and the large dot dabber with the Snow Cone Gelatos® to create circles all over the page. I outlined the larger ones using a Black #199 PITT® Artist Pen. I again used the 3 x 12 Bloom where you are Planted stencil and Banana Gelatos® to create and color the flowers. The Black  Stamper's Big Brush Pen was used along with letter stamps to add the quote to this and the following pages.
Bloom MiniBook 1

 I mounted a square of sticky backed canvas onto this clear page. I added Gesso to the canvas and then used a stencil from the Scandinavian collection and the Stamper's Big Brush pens in Dark Chrome Yellow #109 and Cadmium Yellow #107. I also scribbled a bit of color onto my craft mat and added a drop of water to it so I could brush it on around the design. Next I used the Texture Gems Ice Liner to trace around parts of the design. Lastly,  I sprinkled some glitter to add some sparkle. 
Bloom MiniBook 1

Bloom MiniBook - CloseUp6

The backside of the page also has canvas that was prepped with Gesso.  I used a wash of the Banana Gelatos® to color the background. While that dried I mixed together the Blueberry Gelatos® and Whipped Spackle Paste. Next, I applied it over a stencil from the Scandinavian collection. Once dried,  I added some doodles with a PITT® Artist Pen. The leaves and flag were rubbed with the Lime and Bubble Gum Gelatos® onto white cardstock.  Next I cut them out into the shapes I needed. I also made a wash with the Cobalt Green#156 Stamper's Big Brush pen and water and dipped some cotton lace into it to dye it blue.
Bloom MiniBook 1

For the last page I added some Gesso and then used a Texture Card to add a pattern. Once it was dry,  I made a color wash with Cobalt Green#156 Stamper's Big Brush pen and water and applied it to the background. On a piece of white cardstock  I brushed a wash of Stamper's Big Brush Pens in Dark Chrome Yellow #109 and Cadmium Yellow #107. I used a stamp from the Gelatos Dolce 2 gift set to add another design element.  Once again,  I created the leaves by rubbing the Lime Gelatos® onto the paper and then cut it into the shape I needed. The veins were added with a May Green #170 Stamper's Big Brush Pen. Lastly, I  added a dot of the Pearl Texture Gems Liner to each of the flowers.
