Monday, September 21, 2015 project for the Linnie Blooms Blog hop with Faber-Castell


 WooHoo! Today starts our blog hop with their products and have been using them for years. Enjoy and be sure to check out the Linnie Blooms Team Blog as well as Faber-Castells. :)

Good Afternoon everyone!  I had a lot of fun with all the cool products I received from Faber-Castell for our Blog Hop.  I hope you enjoy what I have come up with. the picture it kind of looks like a one eyed monster.  Well Happy Fall and Halloween then. ;)

 I started with Linnie Blooms 12x6 blank of my favorite pieces to work with.  I painted it with Gelatos using brilliant Fall colors...LOVE how Gelatos blend.  Then I sprayed the piece with Tattered Angels sprays to enhance the color and give it a sparkle.
 I used a heat gun to dry the Gelatos paint before going on and using the Faber-Castell Glass Bead Glitter Gel colored with Gelatos over the top...then I used the Faber-Castell texture cards..number 5 and ran it through while it was still wet. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these cards. I will be using them in ALL my mixed media projects. I also love the Glass Bead Glitter Gel and will use it in mixed media. What a cool product and easy to color with Gelatos.
                   Look at the dimension and thickness the Glitter Gel makes.  WOW!
                    I then used the Faber-Castell Mixed media stencils to make a little banner.
 I used the Faber-Castell PITT artist pen, Deep Scarlet Red to stamp the letters. Perfect color to go with the canvas background colors. 
 For the Linnie Blooms sunflower cutout I used a yellow and orange gelato to color it.  I used some ribbon and a button for the center and a twig from my yard painted black as the stem.
 Love how my little banner turned cute! I used copper Stickles around the edges to make them sparkle.
          Look at the depth and dimension the Glitter Gel gives you...How cool is this stuff!
                       And here you go....I do love the Fall colors. So pretty. What a fun project this was.
