Hi everyone Magda Polakow again! Today I have for you another journal pages made from fantastic Faber-Castell® Design Memory Crafts® products.

Once again I have tried to make a projects purely from Faber-Castell® Design Memory Crafts® products. Playing with few products only gives an opportunity to try new ideas and to discover new techniques.

Today I have for you an easy project. It is not an extraordinary project but the most important, as it shows the technique. This technique gives a texture to simple drawing or other images without covering them.

I drew some faces on a Mini Journal Board using black PITT® Artist Pens.

When I was happy with my drawing I coloured background using Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. I used a few colours, their numbers you can find on a product list at the end of the post.

I used water to mixed colours. The brush you can find in every box of Art GRIP Aquarelle.

When the background was dry I applied a layer of Gel Medium around my small people.

I used a stamp which I found with Gelatos® to make a texture. I stamped it few minutes after I applied gel medium. If you stamped it immediately after applying gel medium, the gel medium is too runny and your stamped image will be less visible.

On a layer of dry gel medium cracks appeared. I applied Gelatos® in areas where cracks were and smeared them using my finger.

I finished my page with adding some colour to my people using PITT® Pastel.
