Mixed Media Monthly Challenge – Glitter

Hello there and welcome to the 1st of February (my personal favorite day of the year) aaaaaaand the day where we at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog get to share a new challenge with you! This month it’s all about GLITTER!! Wooohooo! MMMC 21 - Glitter

We were so fortunate to receive some fabby paints from Paperartsy this month and one of the places you can get them is from Frantic Stamper, who is our generous sponsor this month with a $25 gift card!! Yay!!

Paper Artsy

Frantic Stamper

These paints were so much fun to work with. So fast drying and easy to layer to create a fun background for my piece.


Here are just a few steps at what I did to create to it for this month’s Mixed Media Monthly Challenge featuring GLITTER!!

It was really easy brayer on the paint in the layers (although I found some of the colors didn’t “play” as well as I’d hoped and I added a different one when finished.)


I stamped over the background with a JOFY Stamp Set (JOFY 14) called and used  Stamper’s Big Brush Pens in different colors to provide shading over the acrylic paints. Then I added some Glass Bead Glitter Gel to add glittery highlights to some areas.


When I was at this point I wasn’t overly fond of the coral and the way it looked. So I applied the Bougainvillea paint  with my fingers and then blended it around with a damp, flat paintbrush.


I added some extra stamping to the sides, a strip of glitter tape, a few rhinestones, and stamped a sentiment. Over the sentiment I added a layer of glaze to which I added some glitter. Most of this had to sit overnight to dry.

Tropical Mixed Media Kit

Hey everyone! This is post one of two today…another busy day.  For this post I get to share with you the new Tropical Mixed Media Kit for Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® that is exclusive to Barnes & Noble. I have a card on their blog today that I made using this kit.

It’s a large kit with 23 pieces featuring Gelatos® colors from the Designers Edition – Tropical collection. These colors are bright and cheery and very reminiscent of beachy weather.

Here is the card that I created today from this kit:


This Tropical Mixed Media Kit is a great gift for all of your budding artist friends and family as it also includes a technique guide!

Be sure to stop by the Design Memory Craft® Blog for all of the full details on how I made the card.

Thanks so much and see you soon!

Hey everyone! If you don’t follow the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Blog then you may not not that we’ve been doing an Art Journal feature all month long. And this? Is Art Journal Week 3!

My art journal is about my recent trip to Colorado at the beginning of the month. I’m being a little bit of a tease as I don’t want to share my photos…yet! :) That’s for the final week.

Here’s a peek as to what’s been going on!

Stay Brave Card

Hey everyone! I have a new post up on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog today. It’s a pretty cool card that I’m calling my Stay Brave card. :)

I played around with my favorite Gelatos® again and tried to do something just a little bit different. I wanted to create a pattern just out of paper. Not PATTERNED paper, mind you. You’ll see when you go check it out. And, of course, I’m still enamoured with the new Texture Luxe and Texture Gems. They’re just so darned pretty! And the Stay Brave sentiment for my card comes from the Handwritten  Quotes set from Dina Wakley.


This was a fun card to make. Although, I did start a different version first. I just think that my heart wasn’t in that one. I looked at it and knew it wasn’t going in the direction I wanted. Who knows, though? Maybe it’ll turn into a tag some day. ;)

I hope you will check out the full version on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog. I did another step-by-step tutorial! Yay! So I hope that you’ll go see how easy this comes together.

Enjoy your weekend and STAY BRAVE! ♥
