Mini Canvas Album


Hi everyone! RIta Barakat here with a few techniques using Gelatos!

Did you know that Gelatos work on canvas?  They are so versitale! I used a mini canvas album - I dry embossed it and went over the top lightly with Gelatos!  They look beautiful on chipboard as well!  I used the gold metallic Gelato on top of the colors on the chipboard bird - you can really see

Unique gift box

I don't know about you but I'm starting to panic over how close the holidays are!  I have a unique way to package a small gift such as a gift card, jewelry, or other small treasure.  I had been given a few of these containers to alter and decided to try to do so with some of my favorite Faber-Castell products.

Box1You can get some of these at your local craft store or restaurant supply store. Take the handle off carefully and set aside.  Open up the container and lay flat.  They have a waxy finish so you will want to sand them well with some extra fine grit sandpaper first.

An art journal page with Art GRIP® Aquarelle pencils

Hi everyone, Mou Saha here with another art journal page...Let me show you how I created this page in steps.

I lightly sketched lines on the journal page.














Filled the sections with colors using Art GRIP® Aquarelle pencils.

Blended the colors with wet brush
When dry, I journaled on the page using PITT® artist pen
I let a little water drip down and wrote 'Favorite Season' with Art GRIP® Aquarelle pencils on the wet surface to finish the page.
Have fun!

An Art Journal page

Hi everyone, Mou Saha here with a page from my art journal creaed with Faber Castell Gelatos, Essential Tool Kit. Stamper's Big Brush pen, and Artists' PITT® pen.

I started with mixed media paper cut, folded and stitched to make booklets. I rubbed yellow, pink and orange Gelatos along the right edge of the page.

I used the little misting bottle from the Essential Tool Kit to spray water and let it drip.

Next, I inked up a stamp using the black Stamper's Big Brush Pen and stamp on the right side of the page where the Gelato had dried.


I added a strips of paper tape at the top left and rubbed some blue Gelatos, sprayed water and let it drip for a layered effect.

I stamped a butterfly using the same Stamper's Big Brush Pen and filled in with Art GRIP® Aquarelle pencils.


Finally, I added my journaling using a Black PITT® artist pen.


Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
