Make your own Valentine's Day cards with Faber-Castell Gelatos. These gorgeous cards were made with the Metallic Icing Gelato. It creates a shimmering effect when applied to paper and over other Gelatos® colors, in the same way that sugar icing gives sugar cookies a little sparkle. Be sure you use it on white paper too! It gives it a subtle shimmer that you will love.
A fun holiday ornament I created using Design Memory Craft® Paper Crafter Crayon™ in a combination of red and pink colors. Not only was it FUN to make but I love how the design reminds me of crushed candy canes :) I scraped the Paper Crafter Crayons using the Palette Knife from our Gelatos Tool Set. I took about two teaspoon full of shavings and placed them into a round glass ornament.

Celebrate Valentine's Day with your art journal with the vivid pink Bubble Gum Gelatos®. It's also perfect that Design Memory Craft has this 'love' stencil that is used throughout the entire page. The background of the page was all about adding texture. We also used a variety of Mixed Media Stencils with Guava, Boysenberry, Kiwi, and Strawberry Gelatos®, Whipped Spackle, and Pearl Texture Luxe™. Once the texture layer was all dry, paint hearts with a brush and Chalkboard Paint.
