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?

I hope you're inspired to try this SUPER EASY technique on your own!
