Precious Memories & Artisan Style Cards

PicMonkey Collage2

We have awesome card ideas today on the blog from Mariusz Gierszewski and Katie Zoey Ho! The luscious layers and beautiful embellishments will make your Tuesday! Let's jump into the fun.

First, we have this gorgeous Precious Memories card by Mariusz. We love the florals he uses on this amazing card!

"Child's world is very colorful and cheerful. I wanted to express my latest work which was created on baptism. I created a card based on the collection of papers Precious Memories. I love when my work has a lot of layers and details. This card have 7 layers!!! I hope you like it. I can not wait to publish new projects."~Mariusz

Now, enjoy this card duo from Katie! We love her creativity with trying a new look for this Artisan Style set.

"As I excitedly opened up the 8” x 8” paper pad of Artisan Style, my original intention is to do up some ATC cards. Gradually, the more I tried to work my way, I shifted to turn them into cards instead. When I was almost done, I realized they are a bit small as cards and try to “top up” something to make them look like cards. Grabbed some wine cork, split one into half and glue them onto the bottom. And I found that something is missing somewhere and added on some satin ribbons, lace, brass chain, flowers and buttons.

After adding on so much stuffs and when I’m all done, I’ve totally no idea what I had created - it’s not ATC, not even cards, and not really tags… But whatever it is, these are the final outputs from my creative madness and randomness. I decided to just call them ATC card tags… Still don’t think it sounds right, I’m just being random… Feel kind of a cliché? Yes I know… Imagine Style or Style Imagine? But whatever… Oops!
" ~Katie

Faber Castell & Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 5

An Ivitation layout by Solange Marques featuring Gilded Lily collection and Faber Casell mixed media products(1)

We have had such a great time hopping with Faber-Castell this week and we can't believe it's the last day! We have 2 fabulous projects to bring utmost inspiration. Solange Marques and Maggi Harding have a layout and canvas sure to kick off a great weekend. At the end of the blog jump on over to Faber-Castell's blog to get fabulous ideas. What fun! 

First, we have this amazing layout by Solange Marques for Solange's daughter's upcoming wedding. Absolutely breathtaking!

"Graphic 45 and Faber Castell together is wonderful for  people that love mixed media, like me. For this Blog Hop I made a mixed media layout using the new Gilded Lily collection from G45 and Faber Castell mediums. This collection is so  romantic and it’s perfect for this photo of my daughter and her future husband. I blended the photo on the background and I used gesso, gel médium, gelatos and pastel pencils on the background."~Solange

Supply List

Graphic 45 Gilded Lily collection 12x12 papers:
Creme de La Creme, Gilded Lily, Tres Chic
Cling Stamp G45 Artisan Style 1
G45 ink Pad
Faber Castell Gelatos
Faber Castell PITT Pastel Pencils
Faber Castell Gel Medium
Faber Castell Gesso
Acrylic Paints

Now, we love this fabulous canvas from Maggi Harding using Faber-Castell and Artisan Style. Amazing!

"To create my canvas, I first covered the entire canvas with gelato colors that coordinated with the Artisan Style design paper.  That was a much brighter look than I wanted so I painted over the background with a light coat of white gesso.  I used a paper towel to lightly remove some of the gesso so that some of the gelato color would show through.  Next, I used a stencil and Faber-Castell's Whipped Spackle to add texture to the background. ( I loved how easy it was to apply the spackle smoothly!)


After fussy cutting the peacocks and flowers from the Artisan Style 12 x 12 title page and elements from some of the Ephemera cards, I began creating a collage using Faber-Castell's Gel Medium both as a glue and sealant.  To get a really good seal and bubble free image, I apply the medium both to the canvas and to the fussy cut images as I glue them down.   Then I brush gel medium over each image as I glue it down, and use a rub on tool to smooth out the image and get rid of any bubbles that may have formed.

Once I was happy with the collaged scene I created, I used a water brush and added a little more gelato color here and there on the canvas.  I allowed that to dry and then put a final coat of gel medium over the entire canvas." ~Maggi
