ROCK STAR with Faber-Castell Gelatos
snow layout

Art journal page: Hello Spring


Hi everyone! It's Vicky here and this is my first post as a guest designer at the Design Memory Craft blog! I have created an art journal page using mainly Gelatos® and PITT® artist pens.

Here is a close-up on the chipboard letter which I've painted using Faber-Castell Chalkboard Paint


and here is how the flowers look up close. I mixed and matched Gelatos® and PITT® artist pens for the outcome!


And finally take a look at the texture on the clouds! I just love Whipped Spackle!


You can enjoy the video below which will guide you through all the steps on creating this journal page.



  • Whipped Spackle Jar 100 ml (#770318)
  • Chalkboard Paint Jar 100 ml (#770316)
  • Gel Medium (#770303)
  • Gesso (#770302)
  • PITT Pastel Pencils NEUTRALS (#770182)
  • Stamper's Big Brush Pens
  • Gelatos tool set (#770312)
  • Gelatos® Double Scoop® Color - Snow Cone (#770257)
  • Gelatos Color Gift Set (#770161)
