Faber-Castell Designer – Zoey Emanuela Scarpelli
Today we welcome Zoey Emanuela Scarpelli. We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can see Zoey’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:
I’ve always loved playing with paper, cardmaking and decorating school notebooks with magazines scaps and everyone thought I was kinda of crazy.
Growing up, things have not changed a bit, I am still the “crazy one”, but at least now I can “hide” behind the word Crafter!
When I am not creating, I spend my time browsing Pinterest or YouTube always looking for new inspiration, techniques and motivations.
If I had to explain why I chose crafting, I would use the phrase: “Crafting keeps me sane”. It ‘s my relief, my way to feel free, my way to get dirty without worry about anything, it’s my way to decorate a moment of my life and a place where I can hide and feel safe!
Everything You Want Canvas
I worked on a 12×12’’ white canvas – I covered the surface with tissue wrap paper by Tim Holtz, I glued it down to my canvas using GEL MEDIUM , then to tone down a little the tissue wrap paper I added a layer of Gesso mixed with a bit of water.
When the gesso was dry I started adding colors with Gelatos. First I used a mix between Black Cherry and Metallic Grape, then I added a bunch of other colors like Red Cherry, Cinnamon, Tangerine, Mango and Snow Cone.
I blended everything using my fingers and when I was satisfied with the result, I let it dry.
I wanted to add some stamping, so I started by coloring a bubble wrap plastic with Pitt Artist Pen in Deep Scarlet color , I spritzed a bit of water and then I stamped onto my canvas.
I did the same thing with a normal rubber stamp, using the black Pitt Artist Pen and again spritzing the surface of the stamp with water.
Next step was adding Whipped Spackle through a Hero Arts stencil. I love how creamy is the whipped sparkle and how easy it is to apply over a stencil.
To add even more color I use again a Pitt Artist pen, this time in Scarlet Red and then I quickly blended it to the background with a water brush. I did the same thing around the whole canvas with different colors.
For my sentiment I wrote the quote by Jack Canfield with Faber Castell Eco Pigment 0.2 and I colored the paper with Iced Chai Gelatos. I also added some shadow with Chocolate Gelatos.
Then I assembled everything together.
