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.
