If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
In July, let's take a color challenge. Create anything you like using mainly the color GREEN. Here's my art journal page.
On this project, I used:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Mixed Media Stencils 201 collection: Keys
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Colors: Buttercream (YELLOW set), Green Tea, Lime (GREEN set), Metallic Mint, Metallic Blueberry (METALLIC set)
Others: Sizzix Die Globe; die-cutting system; art journal, old book paper, stickers
And here are the steps.
With Gel Medium, attach some old book paper, stickers and diecut to your journal page.
Apply a coat of Gesso. Ink up a script stamp with Warm Grey IV Stamper's Big Brush pen. Stamp randomly on the background to create a layer.
Use Gelatos colors to add some green color to the background.
Add shadows with more Gelatos colors as well as Stamper's Big Brush pens.
Lay the house key stencil from the Stencils 201 set and apply Whipped Spackle with palette knife. Lift stencil and let the medium dry.
Cut out words from old book paper and attach with Gel Medium.
This time, you'll have an extra week to work on this challenge... that's right! It's summer and it's busy. So you get three weeks instead of two to work on this challenge.
Don't forget to share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to the challenge post with link to your project image(s) by Sunday, 7/26 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.
The prize for this challenge is: One pack of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stencils 101 Collection.
Don't forget to check back on Monday, 7/27 to see if YOU won!
Good luck to all!
