Hi, Artsy Friends! I had to opportunity to go to an all weekend scrapbooking retreat this past weekend and had a blast creating, eating, and laughing! I had the photos from my trip to the Faber-Castell warehouse and had been meaning to scrap it. It was two years ago... see how long it takes me to get photos done? I had so much fun looking around their warehouse and offices.
So, I wanted my page to be as artsy and fun as the trip was! I started with a piece of patterned paper that looked like I scribbled on it with colored pencils (I didn't! It came that way!) and used a palette knife to smear Texture Luxe™ from the Mixed Media Kit. I used one of our Mixed Media stencils from the kit, that I had used in a demo that weekend and was covered in mediums, Gelatos® colors in Tropical, and dried. I just pressed the stencil into the wet Texture Luxe™.
See all that yummy medium and color on that stencil? I just couldn't waste it so I used it on a page! These stencils are perfect for all mediums but also perfect for use in projects themselves! I'd love to see what you do with our Mixed Media Kit in Tropical!
