I'm super excited to be sharing a project I made after playing with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products. I was honored to be chosen to be part of their Brand Ambassador Team for 2012, and have been having a great time creating.

Today, I want to focus on Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos™Colors. They are basically creamy sticks infused with brilliant color. The color slides easily onto papers, and can then be dissolved with water to create watercolor effects, or left to dry for vibrant bursts of color. You can try stamping with the http://www.fabercastell.com/design-memory-craft/products/categories/gelatos, or apply a field of color, and use a stamp to remove the color. They work wonderfully on flocked papers and embellishments too. They are acid-free and odorless.
The Gelatos™Colors are super fun to work with, and the things you can do with them are really cool. I don't know if you've come across them at your local craft store, but my Michael's has them, and they look so pretty on the display. When you see them you won't be able to resist...they look just like chapstics! Talk about appealing to the eye! They also kind of work like chapsticks, because you just twist the packaging to reveal more product when you need it. Cool, huh? The fact that they blend easily and smoothly with, or without water, is my favorite quality of all.
For today's project, I created a self standing canvas piece, which will be a gift for my mother in law. Her birthday is coming up soon, and I thought she would enjoy having a piece like this somewhere in her home.
I created a step by step video tutorial on how I created this project, and you can watch it below:
