Today, we have a beautiful DIY project from Makery Team member Heather Gleim!

These cute decorations are so glittery and fun!
We’ve officially lost our minds over Hazel & Ruby’s Sequin Tubes
You need them!
 
Recycle an old sheet and embroidery rings.

 

Doodle with the Gelatos directly on to the sheet.
 
We gave our colorful masterpiece a quick soak with the hose.
 
It created a beautiful watercolor effect.
 
Once dry, put the fabric in the embroidery rings and apply the Glitter Gel.
 
Place the sequins into the gel.
 
It dries clear.
 
This was such a fun project!
Happy crafting!

Today, we have another Mixed Media project by Makery Team member Natalie Wagstaff!

Hey friends,

This week I have a fun, bright project to share with you! This is a cool artsy piece made from your creativity, I do have to tell you though, I am not an artsy person, I am a crafty person. However these Faber Castell – Design Memory Crafts products make it so easy for you to design a piece and make it look good. So even if you’re not a great artist, you don’t have to be, your art is going to still look stunning! The supplies I used were:

blog 1

a blank canvas, 11″x14″
Faber Castell Metallic Melon Gelato
Faber Castell Lemon Gelato
Faber Castell Whipped Spackle
Faber Castell Glass Bead Glitter Gel
Faber Castell Glaze
Faber Castell Paper Crafter Crayons
Hazel & Ruby Cheveron Pattern Stencil Mask
arrow die cuts
a photograph
burlap, I used orange
foam adhesive squares
foam brushes
bristled detailing brushes
L-O-V-E die cuts or cut from a personal electronic cutter

To begin I just very simply applied diagonal stripes of Gelato colors to the canvas, much like a crayon. The cool thing about Gelatos is that you are able to move, smear and smudge around after its applied. So I ran my finger between each line of color to blend them, it came out this really pretty half metallic-y orange! Cover in glaze to set in Gelatos and wait to dry for an hour.

Next I applied the chevron pattern vertically, after doing so I used a foam brush and began applying Faber Castell-Design Memory Craft Whipped Spackle. I smeared some Whipped Spackle on and then lifted the brush straight up to give the canvas a little bit of dimension. The Whipped Spackle will mix with the Gelatos if worked with too much, I wanted the Spackle to be white still so I didn’t play with it too much.

blog 5

Allow that to dry for a few hours, at least. In the meantime to take up some of the time, I cut a heart out of burlap, and a smaller heart out of the photograph. I applied some Glass Bead Glitter Gel to the entire top piece of the burlap and to the edges of my photograph. Allow those to dry for about and hour. If you didn’t get die cute arrows, I was able to cut some from my Cricut from white card stock. I then colored each one differently with the Faber Castell-Design Memory Craft Paper Crafter Crayons. The crayon did not require time to dry, so I followed by dabbing some Glass Bead Glitter Gel to all the arrows. Same with the LOVE, you can buy die cuts or cut it yourself. To do these I added just a stripe of Gelato color on each side and smudged it around until it was beautifully shimmering, then add some more Glass Bead Glitter Gel to these as well. Now you just wait for everything to dry!

blog 6

I used foam adhesive squares to attach the burlap to the canvas, and to adhere the photo to the burlap. Since the whipped Spackle give it some dimension I wanted these to pop out just a tad! Use smaller foam square adhesives and add the arrows pointing to the picture. Using this for your child’s first day of school picture would also be cute but with the burlap being a star, the possibilities are endless! Use the same foam adhesive squares and attach the word LOVE somewhere you like on the canvas! Just remember, there’t no right or wrong way of doing it. Create as you go and remember this is your art piece!

Today, we have two projects by our Makery Team.  Up first, we have a Mixed Media scrapbook layout from Makery Team member Katie Smith!

Hi everyone, Katie here! I love both Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft and Hazel & Ruby, so I’m super excited to be doing a blog swap between the two. I hope you enjoy the blog swap and get inspired to grab some gelatos and masks!

I wanted to show you how I created this textured title on my scrapbook layout.

To start with, I placed a strip of Hazel and Ruby’s Pass the Tissue Newsprint Chevron Paper on the top of my layout and went over it with mod podge. After that I placed on stencils in 2 different fonts- Central Park and Brooklyn.

I cut off a small bit of Green Tea Double Scoop Gelato and mixed it into Design Memory Crafts Whipped Spackle. The whipped spackle reminds me so much of frosting, it has great texture!

I just brushed the green whipped spackle over my masks, then peeled them up! Easy peasy! I went back around my letters with a black marker to outline them.

I outlined my photo with the Blueberry Double Scoop Gelato, and placed some of Hazel and Ruby’s Scallop Washi along the bottom. I added a few more embellishments from my stash to finish off my layout.

Gelatos are definitely one of my most favorite mediums to work with, and combining them with Hazel and Ruby’s masks was pretty much a no brainer. They work so well together!

Next up, is Makery Team member, Tina Walker.  She is sharing a Mixed Media canvas.
Hello and Happy Wednesday!  Today, I’d like to share a mixed media canvas I created using the Everyday Shapes Stencil-Mask, Faber-Castell Design Memory Crafts Gelatos, Whipped Spackle, Gesso, and Glaze.
I prepped my canvas with a coat of Gesso.  I then placed my stencil-masks where I thought I would like them to appear on my canvas.
(Tip:  When creating, I often take pictures of my projects while in progress.  For example, I took this picture of where I wanted my stencil-masks so when I was ready to place them for the final project, I could remember where I had them placed.)

Then, I colored my canvas with several shades of Gelatos, adding water to blend.  Once you add water, the Gelatos become permanent.

I removed the stencil-masks and let the canvas dry completely.  Once the background was dry, I began creating doodles within each triangle shape with a basic black and white doodle pen.

And the finished canvas!  I love the texture, the color, and the fun shapes.  So easy to do with Hazel & Ruby Stencil-Masks and Faber-Castell Design Memory Crafts products.

Be sure and stop back again tomorrow for more Makery Team inspiration.

Be inspired.
