Faber Castell Brights Tags - Scrap Matrix Design Team

Hi Everyone,

I am here with you today to share my first Watercolour and Words project for Scrap Matrix with you all. This month I was fortunate enough to work with the wonderful Faber Castell Gelatos in colour collection Brights. 

Have you ever crafted with gelatos? can I let you know how much I LOVE them!!. Gelatos have always rated very very highly on my 'always have in my craft room list' ever since doing a 2 day workshop with Donna Downey. 

I have created 3 tags combining Gelatos, Paper Artsy stamps, Scrap Matrix Metal and Tim Holtz Paper Dolls. Side note on the Tim Holtz paper dolls, Vicki from Scrap Matrix has had these on back order for quite some time. A super popular and often sold out item world wide. We are all crossing our fingers that they will be in Scrap Matrix store very soon. 


This is the one and only stamp set I used to create all 3 tags, just look at these stamps, AMAZING. You could use these stamps for so many things, tags, cards, scrapbooking, journaling. Endless opportunity. 


Faber Castell Brights pack, 15 wonderful little colourful babies. If you not worked with these before, they wind up like a chapstick, the colour is super pigmented and a little goes a very long way. Very good value for money. 

 Faber Castell Gelato - Brights

How do they work? how did you get that colourful background? the answer is so simple!!. The below photo will show you the three step process
  1. I began by painting the tag with with white gesso
  2. Scribbled over each tag with 3 different coloured Gelatos
  3. Colour smudged it all with my fingers, very carefully I used 3 fingers, not wanting to smudge colours too badly between each other. 



Now for a few close up photos, tag by tag......




Thank you, I wish you all a very happy and creative day.
