Tutorial on building a mixed media background with Faber Castell Design Memory Craft products!

Spring has come


Hello! Mieko here today to share my new tutorial using Paper Crafter Crayons™ blue/green and red/yellow, Silver Gelato and Essential PITT Artist Pen. I have made a long postcard. I created the colorful background with Paper Crafter Crayons and Gelato.


First, I drew flowers on the white corrugate sheet using stencil. I colored with the Paper Crafter Crayons.



Then I added a little water and mixed to active Silver Gelato. I misted the background.




I drew ‘Spring has come’ using Essential PITT Artist Pen.



Thanks so much for stopping by the Design Memory Craft Blog today.
