Glass Bead Gel on canvas

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft

Hi! Dana Tatar here today sharing some projects that utilize Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®Glass Bead Glitter Gel in a super fun way. I've taken gel off-the-page and used it to create colorful embellishments!

Step One: Mix Glass Bead Glitter Gel with your favorite colors of Gelatos®. Note: I used Red Cherry, Watermelon, Raspberry and Lemon Gelatos®.


Step Two: Fill a shallow silicon mold with the colored gel. Set aside the mold to dry for several days.

Step Three: Remove the dry embellishments from the mold and add to projects! Note: Check the dryness of the Glass Bead Glitter Gel by gently bending the mold. When the it's dry it will shrink and pull away from the sides of the mold.

I'm so ready for Spring, so I created this floral card. To create the background I simply dipped the tip of a Watermelon Gelato® in water and stamped the Gelato® onto a piece of cardstock. I dyed the trim for this card by applying a small amount of Raspberry Gelato® to a craft mat, spritzing it with water, and then dipping the scallop fabric into the color. I stamped a sentiment onto the card using a stamp and a Warm Grey PITT®Artist Pen. I finished the card by adding dimensional pearl accents with the NEW Pearl Texture Gems™.

I also dressed up a bobby pin for my daughter. I attached the red gel flower to a bobby pin with a little bit of hot glue. I used the NEW Pearl Texture Gems™ to add a pearl flower center.

I am a stay-at-home mom currently living in Virginia with my husband and two daughters. I started paper crafting about 8 years ago and have expanded from scrapbooking and now create a little of everything, including cards, tags, ATCs, arches and small gift and home decor items. I frequently find inspiration in music, poetry and pop culture.
