Hello ,

This is already my last post as a Guest Design Team Member.   I am very happy to have been on a such wonderful team.  Thanks  Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® for the amazing opportunity !

So today, for my last project, I made a layout with the Texture Cards.  This tool is great for any type of mixed media project. It allow you to easily create texture in a variety of mediums: Whipped Spackle, Texture Luxe™, Texture Gems ™, Gesso, , Gel Medium... The Texture Cards are easy to clean and comes with a metal ring for easy storage.  You have 8 differents patterns.

On my project, I put the Whipped Spackle through a stencil and I add texture by rubbing the Texture Card on the medium (my stencil was still in place).

Texture Luxe Skins on a Scrapbook Page with Jen

 

P1030737Want a gorgeous metallic surface to cut into shapes and add as embellishments?  Well, I have a technique for you!  This was so fun (if you have a little patience and room to leave it to dry!)... Those pie wedges on the page are Texture Luxe skins!  What is a skin?  Well, acrylic mediums are plastic-based and when they dry on a non-stick surface, they can be peeled off and create a "skin" of medium to cut shapes from!

Stenciled Negative Background

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany here today with another way to use those Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils with the new Mixed Media Stencils! I love the new Mixed Media Stencils because they come in a variety of patterns at an affordable price! They're also disposable, but with a coat of glaze you can prolong their life & usability! Pretty neat, right?

Layout with glittery Black Cherry Gelatos® by Claribou

Layout white

Greetings, partners in crime !

For my second layout, I decided to use the gorgeous, glittery and very fancy Black Cherry Gelatos® from the new Steampunk Collection. I absolutely love the various shades of this color. Deep, light and colorful at the same time. Once this color comes in contact with the paper, it glitters and forms all kinds of tones. Pretty unique weapon ! 

Here's the project at the very final stage.
